Motorsports

Sport Bikes, Sports Cars, a Minivan, and a trailer (?)

Vroom Vroom

Sport bikes, sports cars, a supercar, a sport minivan (Is that a thing, a sport minivan?), and a dad trailer. I guess one could say I enjoy… well, let’s say “spirited driving”. Yes, that’s a good way to phrase it. So, while calling it “motorsports” may be a bit of a stretch, I’d like to consider myself a bit of a vroom vroom enthusiast. Wait, what’s a dad trailer?

Cars!

I enjoyed this little turbo SUV. She arrived in my life right after a rocket of a car, I called her Prudence.

2006 BMW M5

2006 BMW M5
This car was amazing. An actual supercar. The V10 engine put out 400 horsepower, with the touch of a button on the steering wheel, we got another 100 horsepower. It was crazy. The transmission was also very unique. It was a manual transmission, pressure plate, clutch, all that good stuff, with an alien strapped to it. The alien, as I call it, calculated when to shift the transmission. Inside the car, there was no clutch pedal. That’s right, a manual transmission that was controlled by a computer. Very cool. Did I mention this thing was a rocket? Kids were coming, so I had to get something more prudent.

  • Year: 2006
