Meanwhile, within the corralled off area where the bikers performed, Adeline continued to maneuver her K1200. The crowd watched on in awe as she maneuvered the bike through various positions and turns. The spectators cheered her on as she steered the bike in a wheelie while standing up on the back of it, seemingly effortless. But that was not all that Adeline could do.

Stopping to bring the bike back down from the wheelie and held up her hand, silencing the crowd for a bit. The other cybors and their handlers then watched on as she did her next maneuver.

Giving the K1200 a little bit of throttle, she proceeded to go around in a circle twice before gunning the throttle towards one of the fences that the cyborgs and their handlers stood behind. Allison and Jay all breathed in and closed their eyes, thinking Adeline was about the collide with them at any moment. But the collision never happened, as now Adeline was sitting in a bar hop position while the bike was in a reverse wheelie, or stoppie, and then stood up on the front end of the bike to be able to keep maneuvering it. The crowd whistled and cheered as she took a half lap around the area before getting back in regular position.

Adeline then put the bike back into a regular wheelie and wrapped her legs around the handlebars and laid back in a "lazy boy" position for a bit as the bike when straight, and then reached up and stood back up on it's end as the bike continued to maneuver in the wheelie.

"Not much time left," she thought. "Time for one more little trick."

Gunning the throttle while she did the wheelie, Adeline then bent her knees and leaped up into the air off the bike. While in midair she tucked her chest and her legs and did a perfect back flip. Allison held her breath, waiting to see if her friend would land it. Jay watched on closely, as Adeline came down right behind the bike, on her feet, and then sprinted to grab the K1200 before it fell over.

She then took off her helmet and bowed as the crowd cheered and the announcer sounded out, "Once again ladies and gentlemen, that was Adeline Melita. Give her a hand!"

The judges tallied up the scores as Adeline maneuvered the BMW K1200R over to a pit area where Jay and Allison met her. Immediately, Allison set to work with a magnifying glass to check for any damage. After a thorough inspection, she stood up and turned to Adeline.

"Not a scratch. I'm amazed."

"Told you I'd be careful with it. I get to keep the whole amount of the prize, right?"

"Nope. still gotta give me half."

"Are you nuts?! After that flawless performance?"

"Consider it my 'worry fee.' You're not the one renting this bike, according to the rental company. Me and Brian are."

Adeline was about to retort when the MC of the contest announced the results.

"The winner of the Streetbike Freestyle contest, with a whopping 10-point average, is... Adeline Melita, with her amazing routine on her BMW K1200R!"

"That's my cue." said Adeline, going off to retrieve her awards.




Meanwhile, Brian was perusing a collection of Ford Capris, Consul GTs, Escorts, Escort Cosworths, and Sierra Cosworths as proudly exhibited by the European Ford Owners Club of Riverview, MI. Some of them even had 'for sale' signs on them, but the price tags made him hesitate about getting one as a present for Allison's next birthday.

"$26,000 for a '95 Escort Cossie? $20,000 for an '84 Capri?! A $30,000 1979 Cortina?!" asked Brian, incredulous at the prices. "Bloody hell, what kind of pricing is this?!"

"Okay see you then," Alpha said waiting for Fernando's last words before turning off his cell.

Returning his attention back to his plate of chicken chow mein, Alpha grabbed another pair of chopsticks and started to dig in.

"Did Fernando supply you with sources regarding a reliable means of storage for your newly acquired fleet?" Liesel asked as she finished her plate.

"Better; he granted me space in his garage in the Bronx."

"That is convenient."

"What's better is that Leon is going to handle receiving of the delivery."

"Leon?"

"A very long-time acquaintance of Fernando's. To me, he was my Agency contact during my commission with this country's CIA."

"I see; so what shall we embark upon oh fearless slayer of the annoying morons who pilot high-powered vehicles," Liesel said jokingly as she walked toward the sweet and sour shrimp.

After taking a moment to laugh at Liesel's comment; Alpha answered, "For now, we eat. Hopefully, Hillshire is meeting up with some of the others so they might have a chance at this feast before us."

"Insatiable as always," Liesel remarked as she scooped another serving of pork fried rice on her plate.

"I could say the same in regard some of your appetites my dear."

Looking over her shoulder, Liesel flashed a sultry smile at Alpha for a moment before sitting down next to him. Smiling back at her, Alpha thanked whatever hand that fate had played in his return to Italy and the Social Welfare Agency. For had he not, it is with almost absolute certainty that he would have never met the twilight seraph calmly sitting beside him.

On their way back from the Streetbike contest, Allison detoured towards the exhibit of Rosso Corsa that was the Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Detroit. Alfa Romeos of all shapes and sizes came out to be shown off to the motoring public, from classic Giulettas to modern 155's.

"Wow... It's beautiful!" breathed Allison as she looked over all of the cars in the lot, Jay panning the camera over the cars.

And then Allison found her El Dorado. Under a tent was a 1985 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6 Twin Turbo modified by Callaway Cars in pristine-but-modified condition, resting on Red Metallic 17-inch Advan Super Version 2 wheels that bore a tri-spoke pattern wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE-01 tires. This gave the older car a considerably aggressive street-racer look without being over-the-top. The real kicker was that it was for sale at a cool $20,000, depreciating considerably despite its rarity.

"Oh man, I gotta get this car! I can't call myself a petrolhead until I've owned an Alfa! I don't care if it will break down on me a lot, I will still love it because it's an Alfa."

"I see you're interested in buying the old girl?" asked the owner, hearing Allison gushing over the fabulous vehicle.

"Of course I am! I haven't lived as a gearhead until I've owned an Alfa Romeo, right?"

The owner laughed. "I like your attitude, missy. It's rare to see younger gearheads who have an appreciation for the old school. Now granted, I've made some pretty significant changes to the styling--Purists will definitely say that Advans don't belong anywhere on an Alfa, much less an Alfetta. But you know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and to me, Sonia here is beautiful."

"You named your car, too? Finally, I'm not the only one! My Caterham over here is called Catherine, and back home, I have an '85 Toyota Corolla GT-S that I call Megumi and a Mazdaspeed MX-5 named Shirley."

"Goes to show you love your cars a lot. Tell you what, I'll give Sonia to you for $15,500 because I like your attitude. Even though it's rare, even though few of these were built, even though this is worth more, I'll let it go to you for less."

"Do you accept checks?"

"As long as they don't bounce."

"All right." replied Allison, taking a blank check from her checkbook and filling in the amount. "Who do I make this out to?"

"Ah, that would be 'David Thompson'." replied "Sonia"'s owner.

"You're the second 'Dave' I've met today, you know that?" commented Allison.

"Ha ha, Lots of guys in Southgate are named Dave. Must be something in the water."

"Maybe." said Allison, smiling. Jay kept the camera rolling as the transaction was made. Dave handed Allison the pink slip to 'Sonia' in exchange for a United Bank of Switzerland check for $15,500 dollars, and they shook hands over it.

"Now I was wondering if you could follow me in Sonia down to this one Chinese restaurant down the road, Dave. Sorry to say that I don't have other drivers with me who can drive stick at the moment."

"That's all right." replied Dave. "Nothing like a last cruise with the old girl."

Allison got back in Catherine as Adeline and Dave followed her down Fort street, still alive with many cruising cars. They pulled into the Chinese restaurant where Alpha's Challenger and his other new possessions were parked. After parking Catherine and Sonia, Dave and Allison got out and shook hands one last time as the former passed over ownership of the car and its ignition keys to Allison. Adeline brought out a Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot to record the moment for posterity.

"Smile for the camera, you two!" announced Adeline. Dave and Allison were looking at the camera with smiles as they shook hands, Allison flashing a 'V for victory' sign in the picture. Dave went off back to the AROC exhibit while Allison, Adeline, and Jay went inside the restaurant, where they found Alpha and Liesel eating.

"Been busy, I see, Alpha. Nice collection you got." said Allison as she went to grab some food.

"...Thanks," Alpha said as he finished a bite. "Your drinks are on a tab so order what you will."

"Thanks," Adeline and Jay said together as they themselves walked over to the counter for their drinks.

"About how much is this going to set the budget back?" Allison asked scooping some sweet and sour pork onto one of the thick paper plates.

"The food, don't worry about it. I got it covered; and there's still more coming so don't be shy."

"Really?"

"Really."

"Thank you. We'll declare this the unofficial catering hall for Top Gear Italy's stop in Southgate."

Laughing a bit, Alpha continued to eat as Allison filled her plate and sat near Alpha to ask about the cars outside.

"How much did those outside set you back?"

"Not a dime."

"What?" Allison asked in shock.

"Well, unless you count the times I had to fill the tank."

"What exactly have you been doing these last few hours?"

Looking at Allison; Alpha smiled before stating, "Just a little fun off the Cruise is all."

"A little fun? ...Wait; you've been dragging!"

"That would be it."

"...And you didn't mind telling me? Cathrine and I would've spanked the lot of you."

"And it probably would've made for some good footage," Jay added as he sat down with his drink and plate of food across from Allison.

"Oh?" Alpha said as he raised an eyebrow to Allison. "That sounds like a challenge. Care to test Cathrine's mettle on the Mother Road?"

"Can't," Adeline said as she sat down with her drink and plate of food. "I get first crack at Allison and Catherine."

"Ah," Alpha said. "I'll just have to catch you passed the panhandle then."

"Deal," Allison smiled before remembering about Alpha's nitromethane system; quickly changing the subject after. "I glanced at those cars outside," Allison began, "but didn't get a good look at what you got."

Getting up to get another plate; Alpha answered, "I now have a 1976 Nissan 280Z, a 1966 Chevy Sting Ray, a 1966 Ford Mustang, a 1969 Dodge Super Bee, and a 1968 Hemi Roadrunner."

"Now that is an impressive fleet. Hold on, did you say a Sting Ray?"

"Yes, I did."

"I didn't see anything like what we saw earlier out there," Adeline added with a curious glance.

"I saw that; by the way, good for Laine. If I don't see her later, please tell her for me. That was a '74 Stingray; a C3 or as I like to call it; the Dirk Diggler car."

Liesel, began to softly laugh a bit at the comment. After watching Boogie Nights, she and Alpha began a week-long tirade of naming certain things and people after elements in the movie. Much to their own private amusement.

"What's a Dirk Diggler?" Jay asked.

"Not a what young man; but a who," Liesel answered.

"There was an American movie made in the '90's called Boogie Nights," Alpha continued. "And one of the main characters is named Dirk Diggler and he had a red C3 ZR2."

"Can we see it later?" Jay asked.

"I have it on DVD back at my compound in Italy," Alpha said. "I'll let you borrow it, but don't be surprised if your 'sis' wants to stop it half-way through."

"About the Sting Ray," Allison called diverting the conversation back to it's original content.

"Ah yes, now the C2 outside is a real Sting Ray. The C2's fastback styling is really appealing. Kinda like the Alfa's of Italy. Don't you think?"

With the last comment, Allison's interest was piqued.

"Can we go outside?" Allison asked already on on her feet.

"Sure," Alpha smiled as he followed Allison out the door.

Looking at the bright blue Corvette, Allison couldn't help but run her palms along the hood. and sides of the small convertible.

"She's not an original mind you," Alpha began as he talked to Allison about the car.

"Not an original?" Allison said. "A restoration then?"

"Maybe, but I think the only thing still original is possibly the body and the frame."

"How so?" Allison said as she sat in the car.

"First of all, you've probably noticed by now the six-speed shifter and that Sparco wasn't around in the '60's," Alpha said noting the steering wheel.

Laughing, Allison ran her hands across it, "I see."

Reaching in to pop the hood; Alpha continued, "And instead of the 327 that the VIN indicates she's got a ZZ 454."

"Dear sweet lord," Allison said as she arrived next to Alpha.

Allison marveled at the modern equipment done to the engine. "I like the aluminum headers, and I see an MSD ignition control, and...is that a Mass-Flo electronic fuel injection system?"

"Yes, it is. She sits a bit lower than a stock Sting Ray too, marking that the suspension has probably been redone. I haven't been able to check it yet though. Regardless though you can tell she was..."

"...built to run," Allison interrupts. "How much?"

"You wanna buy her now?"

"Yes, how much. I'll write you out a check...right now."

Knowing that he can probably get close to €60K, maybe even €70K for it back in Europe on the collector's market Alpha resisted, but suddenly he had an idea.

"I tell you what, you can have it."

"What?"

"You finance her shipping from New York to Spain, plus do a little work for me when we get back to Italy; and you can have it, no charge."

"What kind of work?"

"Driving."

"Driving, is that all?"

"As in delivery driving."

"...Oh."

"With the exception of the 280Z, I plan on selling these as American Exotics on the European collector's market."

"You sly dog, your a capitalist aren't you?"

"Lautani Real Estate isn't just a cover you know."

"What's wrong with the 280Z?"

"It's far from an original as it's got a twin turbo RB26DE."

"What, lemme see!"

After Alpha popped the hood of the primer-white 280Z; Allison folded her arms and rested her chin on them as she gazed at the epitome of Japanese speed technology.

"I was happy to win this one," Alpha remarked. "It's a straight-up sleeper. Damn thing nearly beat me in the mile."

"NO!" Allison said as she stepped away from the Nissan 280Z.

"No?" Alpha asked.

"I've already decided, I like the Sting Ray."

"So it's a deal?"

"It's a deal. Now to figure out how to tell Brian."

"Tell me what?" Brian said as he walked across the parking lot.

"Alpha's giving me a Sting Ray!" Allison yelled as she jumped up and down.

"No, no; absolutely not," Brian said.

"But Brian," Allison pouted. "He said I could have i---t!"

"You're already going to ship back the Caterham and besides...is that an Alfetta?"

"Y...yeah, I uh...got a real good deal."

"You are going to break the bank at this rate on shipping alone."

"But you're missing the point Brian."

"What point?"

"I'm not paying for the Corvette."

Tapping his boot to the pavement with a stern look had no effect on Allison as she silently pleaded before him.

"Alpha," Brian called.

"Yo," Alpha answered.

"Alpha, how much would shipping run you?"

"On the lot?"

"On a single car?"

"By Sea Freight..."

"Sea Freight? Seriously, you're shipping it by air, right?"

"Not if I plan to sell them. The Mustang is the only carbureted car in the lot. All I need is for the pressure to pop open the fuel injectors and miss a few auctions cleaning up the engines and replacing the broken parts."

"Okay, Sea Freight, then. How much is that?"

"I plan on shipping them to Spain and having them driven from there. So, all together..." After doing a quick number crunch in his head, "About 12K. The full ride to Italy would be 25K easy. After getting them to Spain, I'm using a hauling company that'll do a mass delivery for a flat 2K plus mileage. If you want I can add Allison's rides to the shipping order."

"Brian," Allison pleaded, "just think of it as an early birthday present, please!"

"Fine," Brian finally gave in, "but you're on your own for the Alfetta and 'Catherine'."

"Yay!!" Allison squealed just before glomping Brian.

"Yeah... 'Yay'," Brian said as he hugged Allison. "My wallet is crying already..."

On the other side of the Rosso Corsa compound, the Pagani fratello walked amongst the cars.

"Ah, that brings back memories - mostly bad," Michele noted as he looked at a mid-1970's Alfasud Sprint coupe. "This one I have much more fond memories of," he added a few minutes later as he looked at a black 1995 Alfa Romeo GTV V6.

"That looks like the car we drove in the Mille," Kara observed, pointing to a 6C 2500 Super Sport.

"Indeed," Michele noted.

"This looks like it would be fun to drive along the Amalfi Coast," Claes remarked as she admired a 1968 "Roundtail" Spider.

"Too slow," Kara commented as she noted the 1.8 liter engine listed in the "specification plate" next to it.

Michele and Claes exchanged a private smile at the drives they'd taken together in the evening in the Gallardo Spyder up into the mountains around Rome while Kara slept or along the coast when she was paired with another fratelli for an away mission.

"This is what I'm talking about," Kara exclaimed as she walked over to a sharp-looking coupe in red with a grey roof and tan leather interior.

"Ah yes, the SZ. I'm surprised any of these made it to the States," Michele noted. "Shame there isn't an RZ roadster here, as well."

"It looks like a predecessor to my Brera," Kara commented.

"In a way, I guess," Michele said. "Giorgetto Giugiaro designed the Brera while Antonio Castellana did this one."

"I can't wait for our 8C Competizione to arrive," Kara said. "I don't care what Jeremy Clarkson says - I'm sure it will be brilliant."

"I wonder if the others are hungry yet." quipped Allison, bringing out her iPhone. She first dialed Laine, and after a few rings, the 'Hamster' of the group picked up.

"Hey, Allison." Laine greeted.

"Hey Laine, you and Clayland get dinner yet? Alpha got us a catering setup at the Chinese place near the Dyno Drags."

"Cool! We'll be there in a few. See you in a bit, we're just finishing up browsing amongst the Mopar exhibit."

Allison ended the call and dialed Kara's iPhone. "Hey, Kara? It's Allison. Did you guys get dinner yet?"

"Well, it's not haute cuisine, but Alpha's got a catering setup for us over at the Chinese restaurant near the dyno drags. It's hard to miss; there's a '76 280Z, a '66 Corvette Stingray and Ford Mustang, '69 Dodge Super Bee, and '68 Roadrunner parked out front near Catherine and Sonia." replied Allison.

" 'Sonia?' Who's that?" asked Kara.

"You'll see when you get over here." finished Allison. "Hope you like pork fried rice and such, there's plenty to go 'round."

"Sounds good!" Kara said and touched the End Call button. She informed Michele and Claes and the three of them made their way to the restaurant.

Jay couldn't help but smile ans he chowed down on Chinese food for the second time since noon.

"Hmmm..." He thought as he pulled out the camera and began setting it up with a sly grin on his face after finishing. "Time for some impromptu filming."

"So what can you tell me about your restaurant?" Jay asked the owner.

"We serve good food here." The owner replied, "The chop suey is delicious, secret family recipe passed down from generation."

"Interesting. So how long have you run this store? I figure that you get a lot of business around this time of year."

"My father started this store after we left our homeland." The owner stated proudly, "Well, I've got to get back to cooking. Enjoy your food."

"Thanks." Jay said before walking back to the group, "So what's next on the agenda?

"Well, after we all have dinner, I say we hit up the Dyno Drags. we can't legally race on the streets, so that's the next best thing we have." said Allison, quickly glancing at Alpha, who looked another way. "I think it'll be interesting to see how our cars stack up against each other in a simulated 1/4 mile drag race."

"Count me out." said Triela. "I already know I'm going to lose."

"Don't be the stick-in-the-mud, Tri." said Allison. "We'll just put you up against Jay in the Sierra. That's a plenty fair fight."

"What about your Alfetta?" Triela asked. "Are you gonna race that against Laine's GT-R?"

"Tempting." said Allison. "It might be better if the Alfetta, being an Alfa Romeo, broke down somewhere that I can service it rather than in the middle of Route 66. Even if an American company by the name of Callaway cars are magical in the shop, out here in the real world can be quite different."

"That would be quite a problem, wouldn't it?" asked a familiar voice. Petra had come into the restaurant, Sandro in tow.

"Oh hey, Petra!" greeted Allison. "Say, you wanna use the Caterham in about an hour or so? We're going to try out the Dyno Drags before we leave here."

"I'll think about it over food. Sandro and I are starving!"

Looking away, Alpha couldn't help but smile at the intention of Allison's brief glance.

"I'm game," Alpha said after a moment. "How about you Liesel? Want to run that new Roadrunner of yours?"

"My new Roadrunner?" Liesel said suddenly in shock and excitement.

"If you want it," Alpha answered smiling at Liesel.

"I...of course," Liesel blushed slightly before turning toward her meal. "However, I'm not quite fond of that garrish violet shade."

"Very well, and that blower is a bit much. With higher octane in Europe, we can probably increase the compression and get just as much output."

"Agreed, but we 'll have to sort out the fine details later."

"Not a problem, we can work on it back home."

"I look forward to it."

"Wait...WHAT!?" Jay said realizing that what Allison was suggesting, "The Sierra has no chance in a drag race. It's like asking an Abrams tank to race a Humvee. The Sierra is like a boulder rolling down a hill, it starts slow but once it gets going it's hard to stop."

"I don't see what the problem is, Jay." said Allison, picking up another chopstickful of Lo Mein. "You're in a Turbodiesel truck against a supercharged--and let's not forget, heavy--SUV. Besides, you're on a Dyno. It's just for fun. We'll detach the trailer, obviously, but still."

"...you win." Jay said calmly all the while thinking, 'I'm going to make a fool of myself, again.'

"Just expect it the slowest race." Jay admitted.

"Hey; that was pimp," Alpha responded.

"Blimp is more like it," Kara said after eating a bite. "I could've fallen asleep drafting on the wake that rig made."

"Too right," Liesel said looking over to Alpha.

After a moment, the three of them along with Michele laughed at the remarks made on the now infamous Dope-mobile.

"I'm still surprised you managed to find a buyer willing to purchase the land boat for that much," Liesel remarked as she got up to get a drink.

"Never underestimate the impulses of self-indulgent Europeans with too much bloody money," Alpha said as he finished his plate.

After grabbing another plate of General Tso's Chicken and rice, Jay resumed sitting and began trying to figure out how he was going to beat Triela in the diesel truck, he nicknamed 'Goliath.'

"Hmm..." Jay murmured before attempting to use chopsticks to eat a piece of chicken all the while planning out a strategy in his head, 'Since Goliath is an automatic my acceleration will be slower than Triela if she's driving a stick.'

He quickly popped another one piece of chicken into his mouth, and looked over at the girl's table blushing as the memory of the bathroom incident re-entered his mind.

'Oh crap, not again.' Jay thought as he tried to force the visions to the back of his mind, 'Must imagination something else. Um...Circuit boards, radio, car, Allison...crap.'

Hearing Michele words succeeded in bringing Jay's mind back to focus.

"Hmm...so then the test isn't between the driver's reflexes but between the machines?" He asked the man, "In terms of horsepower, I think the Sierra might have the advantage, but the truck's weight will reduce the acceleration." The brown-haired boy stated before scratching the back of his head sheepishly, "I don't much about this sort of thing, Priscilla taught me how to drive so that she would have a ride home after drinking."

"Been there," Triela noted, thinking of a night in Naples at the Bossi's.

"Done that," Kara added, though in her case she'd had to drive home Prosecutor Guellfi from that same event.

Jay laughed at the reactions of Kara and Triela.
"I think at one point all of us have had to drive our 'older' siblings home." He said before quickly amending himself as he imagined Rico trying to start Jean's car with a passed out Jean in the passenger seat, "Well almost everyone."

He rolled another piece of chicken in the rice and popped it into his mouth. He looked towards Alpha and swallowed before asking, "Hey sensei can you teach me some of the finer points of racing?"

Triela's ears perked up at the question, "Can you teach me too, Alpha."

Alpha's cellphone rings and he notices that there is no number displayed. He answers it.

Alpha: Hello, Fernan.... Leon? OH, I see. OK. What was that? The NightRunner is in my area? He can help deliver the cars home? 27.615? What's That? His Radio Frequency? Uhm... I think I can handle that. He'll be leaving the area around midnight?... Yeah, cause he's the NightRunner. Yeah, I remember that.... OK. I'll see about contacting him before then... What about Fernando? He's what?!! You didn't... What you mean you had too? OK... Laters.

Alpha ends the call and tries not to laugh as he pockets his cell phone.

Liesel: What is going on?
Alpha: Oh, nothing...
Liesel: What was that about Fernando? And who is the NightRunner?
Alpha: All in due time... right now, we eat.

"I kinda wish I could've brought my Lancia here." thought Allison aloud. "Oh well."

After a few more forkfuls of pork fried rice, Allison had another thought.

"Where's Laine and Clayland? They should be here by now..."

"I think that's them out there." said Petra, pointing to the fratello outside the restaurant, Laine whimpering as Clayland restrained her from trying to pounce on Alpha's newly-acquired cars.

Jay grabbed another bite of chicken as he watched the Petra and Allison talked about Laine while trying to figure out what his next course of action would be.

'Damn I need a plan...What would Alpha do if he were in my shoes.' Jay pondered before cramming another bite into his mouth.

Stirring the Splenda in the cup of iced tea that Liesel had brought back for him; Alpha couldn't help but look over at Jay. Whether it developed over time or on this trip didn't matter, the fact was Jay had a crush on Allison; and Jay didn't know what to do with it. Handing a few hundreds to Liesel after whispering in her ear; Liesel looked over to Jay vriefly before smiling softly while nodding.

"Jay," Alpha called as he stood up with his tea in hand. "Outside, we'll talk a little bit about racing."

"Okay," Jay said as he took a few quick bites.

"What about me?" Triela asked standing up herself.

"Jay asked first, Triela. I'll talk to him a bit and you after."

Sitting down, Triela glared at Jay for a moment.

"Or if you wish," Alpha continued, "You can ask Kara and Michele. Believe me when I say that those two can drive circles around me."

Outside of the restaurant, Alpha and Jay take a few steps.

"Let's circle the block real quick," Alpha suggests.

"That's because Michele owns cars that can actually go around corners," Kara noted, sotto voice, causing Triela to chuckle.

"True, but they can go pretty fast in a straight line, as well," Triela noted, remembering her time behind the wheel of Michele's Aston Martin DB9 when she'd raced him along the A1 to A24 interchange.

Jay nodded his head in understanding as he followed his mentor, around the block far out of earshot of everyone else.

"I'm pretty sure that no one can hear us talk here and I'm pretty sure that no one followed us." Jay stated before dropping his tone questioningly, "Based on the fact that we are here, we're not talking about racing are we?"

"No we're not." Alpha replied before looking at the younger boy and bluntly dropping the bomb, "Sooo, how long have you been crushing on Allison?"

Jay's face went pale at his mentor's question before quickly stammering out, "...ah...I don't have a crush on Allison."

Alpha cocked his eyebrow curiously as he started walk past Jay in the direction of the restaurant, "Then I misread the looks that you were giving her. What a shame, I was going to give you some tips."

Jay's face dropped towards the ground before reaching to grab the older boy's sleeve to stop his progress. 'Bingo.' Alpha thought with a sly grin on his face.

"If I admit it will you teach me?" Jay stated defeated as he stared at the ground.

"Only if you admit it." Alpha stated plainly...

"It's just..." Jay trailed off as he let go of Alpha's sleeve.

"You feel different when you're around her?" Alpha asked.

"Yes, exactly."

"C'mon," Alpha motioned as they continued to walk down the street.

"Did you feel this way when you met Liesel?"

"Yes, although I didn't know it at first."

"What do you mean?"

"I'm...was a bit guarded; especially towards relationships and women in general."

"Really?"

"Really. Of the women I've been with; one stole my virginity, another stole my heart, and another stole my M60E3. I miss that gun."

"So, what do I do about Allison?"

"First, just talk to her. Get to know her a bit better than you do right now. On this vacation it shouldn't be hard."

"Heh, yeah."

"Also, be honest with her at all times. If there is something she wants to know, tell her; and if you don't want to, tell her why."

"Honesty first, got it."

"Liesel and I keep few secrets from each other, but the ones we do go under the next tip. Respect her at all times."

"...Okay."

"Remember Allison will always be Allison, and you will always be you. If there's things that you like that she doesn't; respect that. If there's things that others have told her that she doesn't feel like sharing, respect that."

"I see."

"Most importantly; don't rush and and especially, don't force it."

"Rush, force; what?"

"If you two rush into a relationship, even just to 'try it out'; well, I haven't heard of many where the two are still together. Don't try to create chemistry when none is there. You might have asked me about racing to win against Triela and her Landrover, but you can't tell me you didn't want to, in some way, look to impress Allison."

"Well, I really do want to beat Triela."

"If you try move in on her hobbies with only half-hearted attempts, you'll look like an ass."

"I'm not half-hearting anything..."

"Okay-okay. So, what have you named your truck?"

"Goliath...uh..."

"...Uh-huh."

Finally, Laine came in, steered by Clayland with his hands on her shoulders.

"Yo, Laine!" greeted Allison, passing the other Briton a plate.

"Hey, Allison." replied Laine. "That's a hell of a car collection out front. Whose are they?"

"Most of them are Alpha's. The Alfetta and the Stingray, though, are mine."

"You bought two cars?" inquired Laine.

"No, no, not quite. I bought the Alfetta, but the Stingray is sort of an advanced birthday gift from Alpha, and the shipping cost is Brian's present to me." explained Allison.

"You sure have it made, Allie. Now if only a certain someone would get me that Hemi Cuda I've had my eye on..." said Laine, glancing at Clayland, who turned away.

"Hey, does Dyno Drags after dinner sound like a plan?" asked Allison.

"Sure." replied Laine. "You racing me in Catherine?"

"Actually, I was thinking I'd leave Catherine to Petra against Kara's 599."

"I don't mind." said Petra, taking a sip from her drink. "Catherine's grown on me, but I haven't had a chance to put my foot down while driving her."

"What are you using, then?" Laine asked.

"I'm gonna try breaking 'Sonia' in, and if she breaks down, I can get her fixed now and buy spare parts for later rather than have her break down somewhere in the middle of Route 66." elaborated Allison.

"'Sonia'?"

"The Alfetta GTV6 I bought."

"Ah. Is everyone going to race?"

"Yes, actually. The Princess is going to be up against Jay in the support truck."

"Seems a little unfair, doesn't it? That Range Rover is slinging a 400bhp Supercharged 4.2-liter engine."

"Yeah, but even though Jay's Sierra only puts out 365bhp, it's a 6.6-liter that puts down 660 lb.-ft of torque at 1600 rpm. Triela's Range Rover only puts down 413 lb-ft of torque, by comparison. Theoretically, Jay's acceleration should be better."

"We'll have to see how this all plays out on the Dyno, won't we?" concluded Laine. "You haven't a chance, by the way."

"Oh, it's on, now." Allison fired back with a grin.

"Yes, but you forget that I tuned it." said Allison with a grin. It's turbocharged, remember? With a VTEC powerplant? Making a total of 350bhp total? Not to mention, that computer is taking in vehicle weight, aerodynamics, and so on. I assure you, on a rolling road or tarmac, Catherine will utterly trounce your Ferrari. You may have more prancing horses under the hood, but they're also pulling more than twice the weight of my Caterham."

Allison then thought about the styling. "Although, now that I think about it, I probably would rather drive your Ferrari to a cocktail party. Even a little black dress would be troublesome in the Caterham, I think. Points to you, then."

"Really, in this drag race, it all comes down to Petra not being a complete and utter fool with the gear shifter, accelerator, and clutch pedal." stated Triela.

"Ha!" shouted Kara triumphantly. "Catherine is doomed, Allison! Unlike Petra, I don't have to worry about missed shifts! The F1-style gearbox is simple and easy to use!"

"Crap." said Allison, her face taking on a slight pallor. "Petra, driver strategy meeting, now!"

Allison and Petra went aside to another table to discuss the upcoming simulated drag race.

"Ok, Petra. You're up against a Ferrari with a flappy-paddle gearbox. No pressure. You've got a VTEC engine from an S2000 modified with a Turbocharger in a very light car, and a six-speed manual. Listen carefully. No matter how harsh the engine begins to sound, shift at the redline of 9,000 RPM. There'll be a light that comes on to tell you when to shift. Remember, you have six gears to go through, not seven, because that other gear is for reverse, got it?"

"I think so."

"Good. Use my instructions, and leave that Ferrari in virtual dust."

"I mean look at it, its got sharp lines, smooth curves, a big-ass engine that doesn't stop, and its strong as hell capable of pulling damn near anything." Jay said as the student-teacher pair headed back towards the restaurant, "I couldn't think of any woman's name that fit the bill."

Alpha glanced back at his dense protege before shaking his head in disappointment.

"Do you know why people name their cars after women?" Alpha asked.

Jay looked at the raven haired boy with confusion.

"How are you supposed to treat a woman, Jay?" Alpha asked as he stopped.

"With respect, a gentle touch, and kindness." Jay replied.

"Now how does Allison treat her cars?"

"Oh." Jay said as he hung his head finally understanding what his teacher was getting at, "I never thought of it like that."

"Of course you didn't, you have Priscilla as a role model. She probably names her bottles of liquor." Alpha replied with a laugh.

"I've got lots to learn, Sensei." Jay admitted in defeat.

"That you do, young padawan. That you do." Alpha said as they neared the doors to the restaurant. "Play along, Grasshopper." Alpha whispered before opening the doors, "Now remember, Jay. The trick I told you about."

"Yes sensei." Jay replied before realizing the all important question, "Hey who wants to drive to where the Sierra is parked?"

Alpha's palm covered his face as he shook his head in disappointment.

As an Am Trak Bullet Train crosses into Trenton NJ on its first of many legs journey going west, in the rear train cars where the Auto Cars were being pulled, there was a hearse inside one of them, its occupants not leaving from inside it as they guard its precious cargo.

The one behind the wheel: So, how long Leon said Fernando will be out?
Other in the back seat tending to an older male who's head was on her lap: A couple of hours, he said. Just keep at eye on that GPS thingy so we wont get lost and when we get to Detroit, we have to make some phone calls.
The one behind the wheel: Who we calling again?
One in the back seat: Alpha and the gang, you dingy head.
The one behind the wheel: I'm not a dingy head!
One in the back seat: Yes you are, all Red Heads Are, Francesca!
Francesca: No I'm Not, Rachel!
Rachel: You's a Red Head, so That makes you a dingy head!
Francesca: No I'm Not!

Somehow this argument last another 1/2 hour as they leave Trenton Penn Station, and without waking up Fernando...

"So," Alpha says walking past Jay, "what's the good word?"

"We're discussing who goes against who at the Dyno Drag after dinner," Allison said quickly returning to Petra's ear after.

"Sounds like a plan; so who are me and Liesel going against?"

"Excuse me?" Alison and Laine said as they glared at Jay.

"Well...it' just...I..." Jay struggled as he tried to explain his way out of Allison's wrath.
"So," Alpha interrupted again, does anybody disapprove?"

With no voices objecting Alpha looked then toward Liesel.

"What say you?" Alpha asked.

"The prospect of such sounds entertaining," Liesel answered finishing off her plate. "Shall we make a wager?"

"Of course; do you prefer our usual terms?"

"Why not?"

Jay held his hands up in surrender as the girls glared daggers at him.

"Um...I guess what I'm trying to say is..." Jay stammered out before realizing his mistake but being at a complete lack of words, "um...don't hurt me."

"Just don't offhandedly say that again, Jay." replied Allison, still somewhat cross. "I'll take you over to the Sierra and help you detach the trailer. We'll also put aside any extra weight. If you want to get started on that, follow me, we'll take Sonia down the street."

Allison tossed Catherine's keys to Petra, who expertly caught them, as the two walked out of the restaurant.

"I'll do my best to think before opening my mouth." Jay said.

Jay followed after the brunette racer before climbing into her car.

"I
seriously wanted to see how I'd do against that car, I mean it's not everyday you
see a vehicle with a Nitromethane drip." Allison replied as she looked
towards the road while she starting the car, "Don't make decisions that concern me, without my input okay?"

Jay nodded before staring at the floor while mentally chastising himself, 'Nice going Jay, you really screwed this one up.'

Allison and Jay pulled up to the Sierra minutes later, and the two quickly set to work in unhitching the trailer from the truck, securing the trailer from theft by placing a lock in the coupling area where the trailer would hitch to the Sierra, adding chocks at the wheels to avoid the trailer rolling away. Jay then entered the driver's seat of the Sierra, starting the engine to bring the roar of the 6.6L Duramax Turbodiesel V8 to life. Having never actually taken it full-throttle before, Jay satisfied a curiosity and revved the engine to full power while in neutral, pedal to the floor.


As Allison sat behind the wheel of Sonia, waiting to lead Jay over to the Dyno Drags, she was startled by the very familiar and very loud cacophony produced by a supercharger and turbocharger working in harmony. She looked back to see Jay revving the engine on the Sierra and quickly concluded that something was amiss. Unbuckling her seatbelt, Allison hustled over to the driver's side door of the Sierra.

"Jay!" she shouted over the noise of the engine, rapping her knuckle on the door. "Jay!"

Jay backed off of the gas pedal and rolled down the window. "What is it, Allison?"

"Pop the hood, I want to get a look at something." explained Allison.

"Something wrong with the Sierra? Nothing serious, I hope." said Jay worriedly.

"More like something that I never bothered to check is there. Pop the hood and come get a look with me."

Jay nodded and reached down near the door panel to pull the black handle that unlatched the hood. Allison put the hood up, its hydraulic gas shocks assisting the effort. Scanning about the engine block, her eyes widened when she saw what she had suspected.

"Those sneaky bastards! I thought this was a run-off-the-mill Sierra!" exclaimed Allison. "I guess even their trucks can't be left well alone, huh?"

"What's up, Allison? Something different about it?"

"It seems that some muscle boffins have managed to squeeze a Supercharger into the engine bay of this thing. Used correctly, this setup just upped your horsepower estimate from 365 to roughly 500 or so horsepower. Yet they never bothered to make any telltale signs of modification, they just kept it the way it is! Those magnificent bastards over at Lake Erie Adventure Rentals made this thing into a sleeper!"

"A sleeper?"

"A vehicle whose appearance belies its true performance. Imagine, if you will, a plain-looking family car. Now imagine it eating the doors off of a Porsche in a quarter-mile drag race because it has a monster engine under the hood. That is what a sleeper, or Q-car, is like. And I think your Sierra is going to eat Triela's Range Rover for breakfast."

"Wait, so I'm driving something like a 'Bond' truck?" Jay asked, before smiling like a kid in a candy store, "That's awesome!"

"Let's go." Jay said with a smile before climbing back into the truck.

"Let's go show everyone what we're made of." Jay said wistfully to the truck while mentally vowing to himself, 'I just want to prove to everyone that I'm not useless.'

With a determined look on his face he pressed the 'gas' pedal and the mighty black truck took off.

As Allison and Jay pulled into the Dyno Drags lot, they arrived in time to see Laine get bested by a Corvette ZR1, much to the pleasure of the domestic muscle patriots. Thankfully, Laine, while peeved, did not allow this to stop her being a sportsman, and the driver of the ZR1 was also not being a cock about his win and shook hands with Laine in earnest. Since a second run was allowed for the losers, Allison wasted no time in being up next for the event.

"Are you sure you wanna do this thing?" asked Laine.

"If I lose, you look good, and you'll still possibly beat someone else tonight. And if my engine goes pear-shaped, there's a place nearby that stocks all I will ever need." replied Allison.

"All right then. Run it hard!"

Jay found a spot where he could where he could easily view both cars, as they took their position at the end of the track. Pointing the camera towards the vehicles on the rollers.

"Take her down, Allison." Jay cheered from the sidelines, slowly getting hyped up as he watched the "race" paying equal attention to the rollers and the computer readout.

The cars were lined up on the rollers and secured in place. The 'Christmas tree' was lit, and the two cars revved their engines as the lights descended. As soon as the lights flashed green, the two were off, their wheels spinning the rollers to rapid pace. Allison quickly went through the gears as the turbochargers spooled and re-spooled through the successive shifts. However, the computer's representation of their vehicles showed that Laine was already pulling away. As Allison desperately tried to catch up, disaster struck when a horrible screeching came from the engine bay followed by a loud bang and a buildup of smoke. On the instrument panel, Allison saw the volt meter drastically nosedive and she quickly heel-and-toe downshifted as the car lost more and more power, allowing Laine to streak to the finish of the simulated quarter-mile.

"Ooh, looks like some engine failure for the Callaway Alfetta, folks. Let's give our participants a round of applause for their efforts anyway!" said the announcer. As spectators clapped and cheered, Allison was assisted by the staff at the Dyno Drags in easing her crippled Alfa Romeo off of the rollers and off to the side where she could check the engine.

"Damn, I didn't think this would happen that quickly..." muttered Allison as she popped open the hood. the smoke rose steadily more for a few seconds before someone doused the problem spot with a fire extinguisher. It was none other than Dave, and his friends from the Detroit AROC had come along with him.

"Looks like the alternator burned out, huh?" said Dave.

"Yeah. But frankly, this is good for me, since now I have a reason to stock up on spare parts. I'm taking Sonia all the way to California, see, and I want to have replacement parts available in case this breaks down on Route 66." Allison explained.

"You should have told us that earlier! Guys, we've got parts for this, right?"

The other AROC members nodded and some quickly sped off in V6 GTV's to the club trailer. Meanwhile, Alpha arrived with Liesel in tow in their Challenger and Roadrunner, respectively.

Opening the trunk, Alpha opened it and once more connected the digital console to the nitromethane control unit.

"Intent on winning our little wager I see," Liesel said as she looked over Alpha's shoulder.

"On the contrary," Alpha said as he flushed the line before closing the tank. "I'm just making it a fair race."

"I see," Liesel added as she slid her arms around Alpha's waist.

"Are you okay?"


"Nothing is the matter, rather...this is feeling more as a vacation than as an assignment."

Snuggling into Alpha's chest, she breathed deep before turning her head to rest against him, "And I like it."

"It is isn't it," Alpha said after planting a soft kiss on Liesel's forehead.

"You spoil me too well."

Jay nodded in understanding before turning back to tape the next race.

"I think Kara's got this one in the bag." Jay said to himself.

A few minutes went by and the racers had assembled onto the rollers.

An hour and a half has pasted since they left Penn Station Pennsylvania PA (the hop between Trenton NJ and Penn PA being a short one), Francesca starts to get out of the hearse, which makes Rachel complain.

Rachel: Where are you going?
Francesca: Where you think? Girl's room and then something to eat.
Rachel: Would you mind getting something back?
Francesca: You know the rules- No Food or Drinks Outside the cafeteria or bar cars.
Rachel (pointing the kitchen converted coffin): But we got stuff here...
Francesca: Its Not what I want at the moment.
Rachel: Not what you want? You Preggo or something?
Francesca: I'm Not Preggo!!!
Rachel: You must be if you're getting cravings...
Francesca: I Not PReggo!!!
Rachel: Alright, alright... No need to shout and wake up the dead... You go eat and I'll wake up dad and tell him you're making me into a sister.
Francesca: I... AM... NOT... PREGGO!!!
Rachel: Yeah, I know... Would you mind getting me a Monte Carlo?
Francesca: ARGH!!!!!
