Have you ever wanted to be a race car driver? Come on, show of hands, who’s wanted to be a race car driver? I think I’m a race car driver every day. Even in my little cross-over Nissan Rogue, I’m secretly a race car driver. Maybe it’s because I’m a little speed demon, or maybe I like how a powerful car engine feels and sounds when you rev it up. In any event, I think you should all know that I have this compelling urge to drive a race car. It’s on my bucket list.
I’ve included a video at the end of this link that I shot while “racing” on the Radiator Springs Racers at Disney’s California Adventure Park a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I was assigned the back seat, so I didn’t have best filming advantage, but I think it turned out pretty good. You can enjoy that after this month’s edition of Take It Or Leave It – Race Car Style.
Here’s a reminder of the rules: Post your guesses (would I take it, or leave it) in the comments section below. I will post my responses Thursday. The person with the most correct guesses is my winner, but you must re-post in the comments section in order to claim your prize. It’s that simple. Unclaimed prizes will be forfeited after one week from posting the answers.
Would I, or wouldn’t I:
1) Park in a handicapped spot;
2) Run a stop sign;
3) Tailgate (like a good race car driver would);
4) Text while driving;
5) Talk on the phone while driving (w/o blue tooth);
6) Deliberately drive slow in the fast lane to slow traffic for a known speed trap area;
7) Tap my brakes for a tailgater;
8) Drive without my seatbelt fastened;
9) Double park;
10) Use the carpool lane to pass a slower driver.
Good luck. Now here’s the video I told you about:
Word of the Day: Intumesce
Fun fact about me: I have a clean driving record (knocks on wood)
