2019 edition How many miles did you drive your P80 over Thanksgiving?

Post by theWIFES_S70 »

Did a six hour drive in our P80 on Thanksgiving, three going and three coming back. Caught some nasty traffic at various points throughout the drive (the Verrazano Narrows, Outerbridge, BQE...). But man, she felt good... (Only about 120 miles round trip though...). Averaged over 20MPH (again, traffic...) :roll:

Thanks to all of you who helped get her to this point. I think we're doing a trip to Montreal soon. Can't wait for it.

Who did the longest Thanksgiving drive?

You know it! You do know that I just might show up with my exhaust manifold and a catalytic converter, right? :lol:
