Meanwhile, The Internet’s Own Boy details how F.B.I. and Secret Service agents went after members of Swartz’s inner circle. Knappenberger says, “They told Aaron’s father they wanted to make an example out of him, but an example of what? What kind of behavior were they trying to deter?

But on a public road, it reminded me of the character’s final moments in the film so it’s best left to a closed off road or, better yet, a track. But the car is grippy and if driven sensibly, it will stick to the tarmac and won’t scare your pants off. … [Read more...] about Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Review: The little kitten that loves to play
