Saw my first 6 cylinder LT today

I was on my way home and about a block from the house when I saw a familiar scooter sitting in front of the new 6 cylinder LT we have been hearing so much about. I pulled in behind both to chat with the owners. They were lost and trying to find their way to the Reinfest Festival. The driver of the new 6 cylinder LT had a thick Austrian accent that made it hard to understand, but I was finally able to give them directions and get them out of my neighborhood (before home values dropped any more than they already have) and on their way. Although the young lady on the scooter was kinda cute

So Andy, how was Reinfest?

I like the color of that new 6 cylinder LT too!!!

Lots of walking. Did we really end up in front of your house by mistake? I'll have to mark that as "area non grata"

Jerry tends to overestimate his range. Anything past 8-10 ft is safe.

It's not the new LT, but it is the new inline-6
