2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Formula Ford
May 17, 2011
Rain is a rare occurrence in L.A. -- rarer still in the middle of the month of May. Imagine my joy when I signed out our long-term Mustang GT last night. On my way into the office I stopped by a secret location of mine -- a place I lovingly refer to as an automotive Slip 'n' Slide.
It's a concrete parking lot with a painted surface. When it rains, it's like driving on ice. That means low-speed sliding 90s, and drifting at 5 mph. Great fun. I don't know what the contractor or architect was thinking, but I thank them whole heartedly. Sorry, no photos or videos, I don't want like-minded drivers shutting down my fun.
