21,000 miles and 34 states in the past three mos.

Wow!!! What a wild ride this has been :o

With over 21,000 miles through 34 UNIQUE states in the past 2 mos. I have seen so much and driven in about every condition (except snow - yet) An AMAZING car, the Callaway SC580 keeps on rolling. WIth a couple sets of tires - one changed just to get the Supercar tires back on, all I have really had to do, is keep putting gasoline in, and change the oil.

The hardest place to find the "good gas" (91-93 octane), was in the state of New Mexico - the loneliest state was Iowa - the quickest state was West VA one trip, Delaware, another...

Funstuff!!!!!! 8-)

When we lived in New Mexico, I remember we had trouble finding more than 90 octane.

Time to buy some Xylene and Toulene and bump up the octane.
