Delaware Gets Record Snowfall
MILFORD, DE - FEBRUARY 18: (DELAWARE STATE NEWS, WILMINGTON NEWS JOURNAL OUT) An overturned car sits on a snow-covered highway February 18, 2003 near Milford, Delaware. A State of Emergency was declared for the entire state after a record snowfall hit the three counties surrounding Milford. Up to 28 inches were recorded in some upstate areas.

Note the plate color - car is from Delaware

MI went to a white plate background in 2007

If you’re going to keep-up with the new cars going 75, then your suspension and tires better be as good as a new car.

Speeding: In this area, if you drive fast enough to keep the following car off your bumper and at a safe following distance, you need to drive 60 in a 45. Most drivers know only tailgating. It is their goal in life. It is their achievement. It is what they are about. They dream tailgating in their sleep. They bought their vehicle specifically for tailgating. They are inseparable and indistinguishable from tailgating. Their name is an anagram of the word, “tailgating”. They are the Harvenger of tailgating. Tailgating defines them.

...
Competition Clutch 10Lb. Flywheel. 14 stalls to date (and loving it).
Oil use is 1 ounce per 100 miles with ~230,000 miles on the engine

Nice! I also thought that the speed limit would literally be a Saturn SL... barely enough to get out of its own way, much less yours.
