    How do you know when a psychologist has lost his mind? It is when he thinks for even a moment that he wants to sell his sevenesque car! I took a ride to the Gulf of Mexico which is only an 18 mile ride but had so much fun in the Stalker that I realized that my 2.5 years of ownership of this beautifully sorted car is only the beginning.

    Next weekend, weather permitting, there is going to be an autox only 20 miles from my new home and I am going to drive the car over there on Toyo r888r tires rather than switching to my Avon slicks and see how the car performs on street tires. I was talking with Glen Minehart of Stalker Cars and he advised me that his son Jason who is currently about the second fastest autoxer in E-Mod drove his Stalker AXR on Bridgestone street tires one weekend and was only about 1 second slower than when he was using his racing slicks. It reportedly did take him a number of runs to figure out how to compensate for the street tires but when he got the hang of it, he was pretty fast.

    I OTOH, am not fast on either slicks or racing tires so it probably does not matter that much? I will have completed my 70th lap around the Sun later this month and I realized that time is short and fun is what it is all about! This Stalker is definitely not for sale <grin>.

    Sense? Hello? Bob talks to a stuffed duck and Pee Wee Herman and drives a seven! Sounds like a particularly right blend of crazy to me...

    Right, but if Bob sold the se7en, then he would simply be a guy who talks to a stuffed duck and Pee Wee Herman, which would NOT be a particularly right blend of crazy. As always, a se7en makes all the difference.
