Car News: Exotic and Plebeian

It's been a joy to have this 2013 Nissan GT-R for the last week.  I drove it to the Cities for some routine service for my cousin.  The Nissan dealership's is currently without a certified GT-R mechanic, so I've been "stuck"with the car.

Played around with photo editing on this shot.

Front and rear views.  Here are some specs for the technically minded.  This car is rated 0-60 in 2.7 secs.  I drive it fairly mildly as I don't want a ticket or damage.

 I'm also excited about the new 22 cubic foot cargo carrier for our Forester.  REI had it in their scratch and dent section with slight damage in the back from shipping. an easy repair shaved almost 300 dollars off list.  We will be loading up for a family camping trip this weekend.  Not fast, but it does haul more gear than the Nissan.
