There's usually a healthy growl from the exhaust, so you know this isn't some
wimp car. Snick the transmission into first gear via a classic shift lever or a paddle
at the steering wheel. Onto the gas pedal, and off you gc.quickly, with something
stirring in your soul. In the end, it's not all that important if you're belted into a $1.2
million Ferrari Enzo, a $50,000 supercharged Mustang, a Porsche Turbo, or a
vintage Corvette Sting Ray. What matters is under your right foot, the sounds that

We were at a small track just south of Milan, ltaly, with a Ferrari Formula 1 car
screaming through a test in the background. Down with the Diablo's door, into

day in Santa Ana and Max Balschosky with '01 Yeller was at the drag strip. It was
a contest of elimination and it finally got down to the last race and it was our "
Bomb" against Max's 'Ol Yeller. jerry and I flipped to see who would drive the car.

We found out that first gear can indeed get you from point A to point B, seven
miles away, albeit slowly. Andy and I had a dangerous new piece of information:
we no longer had to wait until we were sixteen years old to have access to a car.
We began to hone our tactics and skills as car thieves—even studying ways to

accuracy, the test car achieved exactly that. “We would hazard a guess that
Citroën engineers are not too happy that the plushy silent softness of their
chassis and body is marred by the relative harshness of the engine ... Both cars
have excellent gearboxes but we fell in love with the Citroën's right from the first
change. Transmission and axle noise is not noticeable on the SM or the BMW. “

from different sources and backgrounds and, at first, they fit badly, if at all. If you

nicely mated, they fly apart. Love and living as one are much like that new
gearbox: you have to take it slowly and carefully to begin with then each gear and
tooth has to have its rough edges worn down until they match” Here she
