    Slingshot Test Drive

    My 84 yr. old father in law has been having one health crisis after another for the last couple of yrs. but the last few weeks he has been doing pretty good. He's been after his daughter, my wife, to go to the local Polaris dealer so he can get a good look at a Slingshot. He has no intention of buying one, but just wanted to look. I got in touch with the dealership a few days earlier and arranged for a "surprise" test drive for a my father in law. That just made his day!

    It's 1,700 lbs. with 170 hp according to the salesman, so it moves along. Not a rocket ship but enough get up and go to make it a lot of fun!
