The call of C'thulhu

The call of C'thulhu... part 1

Well, no use crying over spilt milk, C'thulhu II has been hands down a ton more fun to drive than the first iteration. The image below was the load screen on the first and shall remain as a memorial to a fun car.

Most definitely, I did about ten laps around the parking lot for my apartment building stopping and starting to get the hang of first gear today (2-6 are easy peasy, a little jumpy but shifting is not stall worthy).

I'll take pics tomorrow after work (yay retail), as far as reception I don't really listen to the radio so I'm not sure.I've heard others comment that they lost some signal strength.

I'm curious too about the Perrin antenna. The shark fin doesn't really do it for me, but the Perrin looks real clean on your car
