Welcome to Test Drive ANNLimited

Test Drive Annlimited

Ann Morey isn’t an automotive journalist, but she’s probably doing a better job of it than most of us. She’s a mid career marketing manager who only recently learned how to drive a manual transmission. She’s got a classic Charger in the garage and a boring Accord in need of replacement, so she’s out to test drive every mid-20-thousands dollar sports car out there.

This isn’t Motor Track and Driver, so she’s not limited to new cars or PR fleets. She gets to compare a two year old Mustang to a 10 year old BMW. That said, she is limited to dealer stock on hand, with some impressions on how they treat a female shopper thrown in for good measure.

    I was wondering if Ann's test drives were going to be picked up. So glad it's Hooniverse that did.

      Is Ann that famous?

        If you're in the 200+ member group that hangs out on G+, she is.

          There's a Hooniverse group on G+?

          1. I Think Not Avatar

            Not exactly Hooniverse, but there's plenty of overlap. Just a bunch of car folks from around the nets. Refugees from Jalop's oppositelock, many of them.

              We mostly just talk about getting tacos.

                Mmmmmmm… Tacos.

            Yeah, there are a ton of us on there from various places. Probably 40-50 of us that are regularly active, and then more that just pop on every now and then.

                Must remember to refresh page before failed attempt at funny. Never been to the site, but since the googles make a + profile for every account/service I probably have several profiles with absolutely nothing on them.

                  I can't stand that Google+ crap. i got a new Galaxy phone to test and they had created a profile and linking me to people before I even knew what the hell it was. I got rid of the phone 2 days later and have been getting suggested people to check out ever since. PITA!

                    I like Google less every day.. nowadays I only use youtube (and maps at work) but log out whenever I can because otherwise I'm logged into what seems like half the internet at the same time.

          There's a group with 200+ members on G+???

          1. I Think Not Avatar

            Welcome to the rest of the internet, where there are excellent social networks outside of the book of faces.

            1. FЯeeMan Avatar

              Ok, so what's the name of said group? Maybe they'll have 200+ +1 members…

              1. I Think Not Avatar

                Erm, less a group, more a collection of a bunch of people who have all circled one another. Any one of us can introduce you to the rest, and you'll have a crapton of people circling you in a very short time, followed by a bunch of others trickling in over time.

                  Well you could find us by going to the Oppo+ page or community and we can get you connected to the others quickly from there.
                  The 200 member community is here https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/108540995
                  The older 300 member Oppo+ page is here https://plus.google.com/u/0/108632797239350610365
                  I am one of the managers of both. So i can approve people who join since both are listed as private.

                    Thanks for approving me. Fair warning, I haven't the foggiest idea how to use this G+ gizmo 🙂

    The name Morey sounds familiar. Ann, you're not related to Ray Morey of Dallas, are you? I know him from the NTCA (North Texas Corvair Association).

      I don't think so, I've never been to Texas. It's actually a more common last name than you'd think.

      1. dukeisduke Avatar

        Okay, just wondered.

    Congrats, Ann! Can't wait to read more of the reviews. The Corvette review has probably been my favorite so far but they've all been pretty interesting reads.

    This sounds like some really superfine ultra-pure hooniverse heroin, can't wait for this series.

    I can see it coming. TestDriveAnnLimited and $kaycog at the next Hooniverse party standing in the corner, pointing at all we geek Hoons and giggling with their hands over their mouths.

    Ann,
    I'm loving your posts. As a 6' tall not-plus-size female gearhead myself, I get a lot out of them. I'm searching for a replacement to my 2004 infiniti G35 manual sedan and my shopping list looks a lot like yours. Have you considered a VW GTI?
