This wasn't at the ramps. A girl I was dating looked over at the gauges and said - Are we going 180 miles an hour!!! I said "no". She says "YES YOU ARE!! SLOW DOWN!! It says it right there! 180." It was the temp gauge. (she's blonde -go figure) This is the same girl that I brought to the St. Patrick's day parade in Chicago & she asked - "When do they dye the river back to its natural color?"
She sounds like a keeper

She was my fiancee, but I couldn't take it anymore. She got the boot after 4yrs. on Dec 28, 2004(no joke). That was after I told her there was no Santa. She was devastated.
