Someone has a good sense of humor about their 240d auto...

That's pretty good. I had a sticker on my old Nissan Stanza wagon that said: "If I drive any faster, I'll burn up my hamster!"

Yes I rotated it flat (we were on a curve) and cropped it down. Would you like to see the original?

The one on my automatic 240 says:

Pass me-
I'll see you at the next light.

And it's usally true.

ha! When I had my first 240 my tactic was to get up to 80 or so on the downhill and pass people, then slide into the slow lane for the uphill and drop to 55 getting up to the crest. Then do it again! I played leapfrog all the time with truckers, who were usually some of the only vehicles on the road going the same speed as I.

Did you stop and challenge him to a race in your 4-speed turbo? Just to show him what he was missing?

IMHO, any car with more than 67HP is overkill.

I love overtaking SUV's and pickups not becuase of having more power, but because most of them are electronically or gear-limited to around 95-100mph.

if you REALLY wanna laugh, open the gas flap on the 240auto, there is a warning if you are going to be traveling 100mph or faster, to add 4psi to the tires...

Years ago down here when playing squash was popular there was a chain of courts called Vital. They had a bumper sticker that many had
"VITAL PEOPLE PLAY SQUASH"
I saw an old car one day . The owner had a sense of humor, he had rearranged the sticker to read
"SQUASH VITAL PEOPLE"

When I used to walk to University I would often see a beat up pickup, it was from a construction company, It had a sticker on the back;

HINDMARSH ERECTIONS
WE STICK IT UP ANY WHERE

I still remember that 35 years later.
