I use to have a Guards RED Porsche 944 that I enjoyed to drive.
But I always wanted a faster car.

In Silicon Valley there use to be an Amusement park and arcade called “Malibu Grand Prix”.
They are closed today, Out of business because of high costs of operation and real estate.
Like every other business in SIlicon Valley the high costs of real estate has driven them out.
They had some small formula-1 go carts that there low and fast.
They went about 25 mph but it felt like 50 mph and would pull allot of G-force.

It was a fun place to spend a Friday night at.

So, I would like to take an old Porsche and turn it into an electric car.
Like this one.

This is my car, bought it right at the end of last year. I used to drive a 2002 Dodge Dakota but thankfully not anymore. 🤣

This is my 1992 Oldsmobile 98 Recency Elite with only 60k miles on it. It used to belong to an old man who passed away and I bought it from his son. This is the first car I've ever actually felt anything more than just basic transportation (or in the case of my dodge: mild loathing) for. 🤣 I looooove this thing!!!

That thing has some serious charm 👍

I don't drive much these days at the best of times but lockdown - basically not at all. I had to ride my bicyle down to the shops the other day and buy a car battery charger 😂

If it's broke, then fix it!

Pretty good shape for a 1992. I only drive when grocery shopping is on my list and I need to fix major issues on my car at this time and find out how I can permanently fix burning oil issues on an LX5 ShortStar GM 3.5L DOHC MFI engine that has 125,501 miles on the clock. I inspected the PCV Valve and that is still good and clean, checked the hose for any damage, and looked at the bottom of my car on the oil pan for any dings or cracks and found nothing. The engine still runs, but I'm more concerned about the engine's lifespan.

In Silicon Valley. Hewlett-Packard use to give its managers Ford Taurus to drive. There campus parking lots where full of Ford Taurus.
And HP use to have many really BIG campuses in Silicon Valley.
They must have had a corporate Ford Taurus fleet of at least 3000 cars.

Do you know of what cars other computer companies used ?

Got an old Merc. Needed a bigger car to haul the dog and various junk around. This one is bit too clean for my taste and now I got to be more careful with the exterior and interior. Otherwise seems to be OK, got it tuned for 650 Nm torque to avoid issues when fully loaded.
