Hi Jeffy',

Minor clarification, she is my Registered Domestic Partner, not wife.
(A California thing - allows us, along with other asset protection benefits, to file state taxes jointly. Saves a few bucks).

She is fine with my participation in ORR events, just not in my brand new 2010 GS Corvette.
My brand new 2005 C6 was broadsided by a deer in 2005.
That's her worry about high speed highway runs, not my driving skills or training. Or so she says. LOL

The current plan is to buy her a 2010 or 2011 C6 convertible, and modify the 2001 C5 coupe for ORR events.
Nothing fancy - harnesses, fire suppression, etc.

The bad news is, I have yet to convince her that the new Cyber Grey was made for her.
And GM is not likely to bring back her beloved Pewter - she has been waiting for 3 years.

Right or wrong, she is much less worried about a 150+ run for 30 seconds on a 12,000 ft X 200 foot runway.

BTW, she does NOT know about my taking a large crow thru the windshield of a Kenworth, many years ago.
Lets keep that info among the menfolk!
