Let's face it, some cars are better, more fun, etc. than others, but they pretty much all suck.

Unfortunately, in the NE there are days you can't ride a bike, or times you have to haul things. Or long trips with family. Other than that, I try and stay out of cars.

Had a breakthrough the Sat. before Father's Day. My wife asked what I wanted for Father's Day. I asked for her to take a ride with me, which she hadn't done for probably 20 years. Promised I'd actually do the posted speed limits, and take it easy around the corners. I almost passed out when she agreed.

Actually did the speed limits, gritting my teeth at the 25-45 MPH limits, but we did the 20 miles to Kent without a hitch. Had a nice outdoor coffee+, she perused the boutiques. Later, at home, she admitted it wasn't bad. A start, anyway. This was a woman who toured all around Europe on a BMW with me in the 70's, "what a drag it is getting old". Thank god I haven't.

Actually that's English.

"Among the market's most advanced"

That would refer to every automobile manufactured. Not comparing it to the other cars that so selectively fit "in it's class".


It's like politics, you have to read between the lines.


I tell people all the time. Let's face it, cars are a necessary evil. We all need to get to work, get the kids to their functions, etc., but cars are a depreciating investment. It sucks that they cost so much, and we need them.
