Coincidentally, today I followed behind another Firestorm FRS for about 3 miles, neither of us crashed.

No. Just slower drivers. The woman was old. And when I say old that means they are really really old.

Well in this case the sample size of two really doesn't reflect an accurate average.

Happy to run with your scientific exercise. Sample size of 2 is better than 1.

OK so in this case the average age of both BRZ and FRS owners would appear to be around 65.

Drove to work this morning. Did not crash.

Actually a bit of an achievement considering the weather:



Also considering the driver who can't keep the car straight on dry pavement forget snowy roads as evidenced from my profile and signature pics.

What time did you leave this morning? Roads were fine for me excluding a few select areas. Last night though, lol, that was some interesting stuff leaving work around 5:00pm. I've since learned that my car when losing traction but attempting to go forward, always likes to swing the rear to the right side.
