We’re all probably quite aware of my addiction to the V8 Supercars by now. Last night I was curled up on the couch, contentedly watching this weekend’s race, and quietly pining for great vast sums of money in brown paper sacks. I mean sure, it would be nice to be able to partake of the excitement of driving a V8, but I’m pragmatic enough to realize that it would be phenomenally expensive. I doubt I’d make it more than two corners before I crashed horribly, and I consider myself to be a reasonably decent driver.
No, I’m more interested in having some of the gadgets that are on the car. Mostly the air-spike jacks. It’s coming to be fall ’round these here parts, and that means it’s not long before the snow starts to fly. That means I’ll have to swap out my performance tires for my studded winters, and doing that myself can be a long and tedious process, particularly since my IRS requires me to jack up each corner separately. An air-spike would speed things up enormously, but I’m not sure it’s worth the several thousand dollars it would cost me to install one.
What extremely high-priced piece of technology do you lust after because you’ve already found a way to fit it into your day-to-day life?
