Quintessential New England Gen2 Avalon moment
It's 71 degrees, the sun has just dipped below the horizon. Everything is clear and light, and nothing of the sun disk is left to blind you.
You're on a winding road deep in some woods outside Boston. The leaves on the trees are finally fully open in a sea of differing greens. The road's just been re-paved for first time in 36 years. There are no cyclists, and you're playing a jazz around midnight CD that you got at a library sale for 50 cents. The guy behind you in a new BMW sports car is inexplicably driving the same speed you are, and there's no traffic coming toward you.
It's just you, in your living room chair, the high-hat, snare, sax, piano, and acoustic bass, and now and then a little hum of power as you go up a bit of a rise in the road.
I'm going to have to re-create this when the time comes to sell this car, so I can make a video brochure and say to prospective buyers, "Here's exactly what driving this car is like."
