Out by my mailbox and along comes a late model AMG Merc - heard it way before I saw it as it was being driven very hard. As it comes by my place, the driver is very conspicuously a young guy wearing a mechanics overalls. So many options...

a- Mechanics get paid a lot more than you might think.
b- Somebody practices maintenance on their own car - although on a Merc, you generally do that with a laptop.
c- There are some cool benefits to being a mechanic
d- That is a very thorough road test
e- Do you wonder what is happening to your car while it is being serviced - serious trust issues next time you get it serviced
f- Those AMG built cars make a great noise

But the thought that dominated my mind was how dangerous it was driving that fast on a narrow suburban street with lots of blind corners. Especially in the school holidays when there are kids around. NZ is full of empty roads - why drive somewhere so dangerous to others.

And yes, this rant does make me feel old.
