Funny story, I may have told this before so bare with this old man. But when I was first dating my wife we were in Half Moon bay at the beach and as I left and pulled out onto Hwy 1 I nailed it to get up into traffic and it went sideways a little. She hadn't ever been around hot rods or anything like it and her hands went out to the door and dash and said "Don't do that". I said I'm sorry and we went on with the day. While out at dinner I said to her "Just so you know when the car went sideways back there I was in complete control, I have been driving hot rods and studied it even, that was nothing to be worried about but I won't do it while you are in the car ever again".
She was fine with this and it wasn't long after before she would be sitting in the passenger seat with my two kids in the back seat, top down spinning donuts with their hands in the air squealing like they were on a roller coaster.
