    1. And enough horsepower to go to plaid, unless there were some serious mistakes building the engine. I've always thought the Maverick coupe was pretty good looking.

  3. The Comet from the other day looks nicer, but for 1/2 the price I'd take this one over that.

  4. There is so much stroking going on this week, you should play some Billy Squire.

  5. Hate when they photograph them wet. Always as sign that they are hiding something.

  6. The headline made me think of the NYC subway back in the 70s
