I think it is more along the lines that if most people drive a M6GC at that age, it is a bomb waiting to explode. I know it is not all people, but 95% of very young people would be a danger to the...

Part of it is pure luck though. Being put in the right situation with a decent O-line, and good WRs. Often I sit there and think how much better a given player would be in a different...

Agree with all of this. I crossed it off the list for these reasons. But, if you can get past these or if these do not bother you, the car offers a good bit of luxury for the money.
