Interesting Conversation

Got rock star parking in front of the local PetSmart today. First place right next to the front door. On my way into the store, an Asian guy says "nice Holden, does it have 350 or 400 horsepower?"

Told him I had 350 -- then he asks about how the front of my car looked different than he remembered. We get to talking -- and he's a Chinese national in town on business. Gets to Australia every once in a while -- and has a buddy with a Monaro there.

We talked a little bit. He couldn't believe how cheap the GTO is -- as well as our gas.

Groucho would've been proud.

That's a pretty cool story. You get a guy who both knows what the car really is, and how much HP it was offered with in both configurations. Nice!

Cheap Gas. I filled up Friday $2.96/g premium. I guess compared to some countries it could be worse, so I guess we should be a little bit thankful.(Not that much though)
