I completed the move back from Colorado for John today (after driving distances out west, a little 550-mile jaunt up to Maine and back seems child’s play) and as a reward, I was treated to the sight of a Lamborghini ($227,000-$400,000, base, depending on model) doing 60-miles per hour on the Massachusetts Turnpike, a full 5-mph under the speed limit, never varying, for a loong, slow time.
It’s possible, of course, that its driver was just a sober, law-abiding individual who wanted to make certain he didn’t scare anyone else on the road, but in my experience, Lamborghinis – 0 – 60 3.6 seconds, 200 mph top range don’t usually attract such people. My suspicion is that the idiot behind the wheel has accumulated so many speeding tickets that the next one is death, so he’s restricted to the slow lane until his record clears – say, several years?
If I had a Lamborghini and couldn’t take it above 60, I’d put it on blocks, ditch the disastrous comb-over and gold jewelry this guy sported and buy a Volkswagen for the duration of my purgatory. As it is, Mr. Lamborghini Dude looked like the pathetic loser that he is.
Bet he doesn’t get laid, either.
