I don't care what they call it. Now it's "Old 7100" as far as I'm concerned.

This is a 286:

It's funny you mention Shirley Highway. We were camping over the weekend here in North Carolina, and I met an old gentleman and was shooting the breeze with him. Told him we just moved to NC from Northern Virginia, and he said he grew up in Woodbridge back when it had 13 houses in it (i.e a long, long time ago). Started discussing traffic, growth, etc, and he said, "Did they ever add any roads into the city besides the Shirley Highway?"

Now I've heard of the Shirley Highway, but I had to think to myself, "which one is the Shirley Highway again?"

As for that 286 computer, I think I had that when I started working in DC. It was the bomb at the time!

Which amazes me as Garmin still has not updated the speed limit on 66 where it jumps to 70. This has been 70 for some time now also. I emailed Garmin some time back but they never responded.
