    Hugh took me on the "Evo". Showed me what the car can do. He said that its a 30 mile stretch. I filmed the entire run. I'll leave it to the forum members to figure out our average speed. Just look at the time of the tape. REMEMBER... I NEVER TURNED THE CAMERA OFF. You be the judge................Frankie (still shaking) The odd thing about the end of the clip is that we no sooner stopped "in the middle of nowhere" when a truck came from the other direction and we had to move.

    I like how you politely gave Miller a ticking of for getting too close to the cars in front whilst overtaking. =))

    Keep 'em coming Frankie.

    I didn't want to go too fast as he would miss the stunning scenery .and always in the national speed limit.

    The German speed limit is not what it used to be.

    This was the last video taken when I stayed at Miller 1098's home. As you can see by all the video, he spent a lot of his time showing me around. I enjoyed his hospitality and meeting his family. As with all the forum members it was extremely easy to develop strong attachments to them. For me, it was almost impossible not to become a bit emotional when I had to leave. Its so difficult to say goodby to such a wonderful group of people. But enough of this................next: HEEEEEERRRRRRSSSS GARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Wait!!!!!!!!! One last clip with Hugh. We start with Hugh pointing out Hard Top's girlfriend..........
