1970 Datsun 1600 roadster. Absolutely no use in the snow. Clutches were an expendable item on this car.

With the 4.5-L V8 I do not have a strong desire for any more HP or torque.

That said, I am not sure I would turn down the M5 for my next vehicle!

The Cingular ads really amuse me, in which they brag about "fewer dropped calls." Well, duh. Hard to drop a call if you cannot connect in the first place.

I disagree with the Verizon comment. I'm quite pleased with my Verizon Bluetooth implementation. I have the Moto v710 (now replaced by the v815, I believe), and it is excellent.

Yeah, I get very close to the EPA estimates. In fact, pure freeway I probably approach 28. This is incredible efficiency for such a powerful V8.

If you get too cold, I'll tax your heat.
