It's not a technical review, as we covered that in an earlier review (January 2010).

Mike, that is a VERY nicely written review. After +/- 40 years of reading automotive journalism, it's a rarity to come across something that is concise, informative, and, well, different. Purdy, David E., and the young Satch (back in his Autoweek and Competition Press days) could do it consistently, and Brock, Jean and Peter Egan had their moments, but they were the exception rather than the rule.

Your opening comparison to General Sherman was inspired, and props for adding details most would overlook, like the baby seat reference, and the trip down-mountain with the xenons.

Congrats on a nice piece of work!
