Lesson from Lombard Street
It’s a pity every city doesn’t have a piece of pavement like San Francisco’s notorious Lombard Street hill. Take a corvette down that brick serpentine and – in one block-you’ve learned there’s a whole new world of motoring that you’ve never touched before.
It’s the sports car world-the world of precision driving where your car becomes an extension of yourself, answering the flick of fingers, the tap of a toe with a crisp accuracy that larger, bulkier cars can’t equal.
It’s a world in which every mile is a reward, not a chore-because no other kind of car gives you the kind of mind-reading obedience, the sense of solidity and security through curves, the instantaneous sprinter’s response.
