Whenever you buy a performance car, there’s generally an intent to test its limits. There’s a winding country road by your house, but you likely will have to avoid cyclists, motorcyclists, residents mad about the broken speed limits and loud engine noise, as well as police officers ready to write a ticket. Highways are much rougher than they used to be (at least in California), so verifying the top speed of your Porsche down a freeway late at night might be a hairy proposition with the uneven road surfaces and random potholes. Consequently, your new performance car will be sitting in the garage most of the time, only taken out on days when the sun is shining and traffic is at a minimum. Eventually, a performance car owner will resolve to take his or her car to a track day and see what the car can do.

Tax Day Scam Artists Steal Dead Child’s Identity -

Dear ABC News Fixer: I’m not looking for help from The ABC News Fixer, but I wanted to offer my experience so people know that the stolen refund scam does indeed happen. It happened to us last year, and it just hit us again. Our daughter passed away last year at age three and a half. When our accountant tried to electronically file our tax return, it was rejected because a scammer had already filed a return in my daughter’s name and applied for a refund. It took a couple of months of paperwork and back-and-forth to correct it. This week, when I filed my 2014 taxes, the electronic return again was rejected. My accountant said it was the same thing – someone had used our late daughter’s information to file a fake return. These scammers are dirt bags. – Matt Hammond, Downingtown, Pa.
