Have they even thought to make provisions for what to do with those 10

All that hyped size and room, and the best it can do is carry one Tiger 
inside, and tow another? Hardly seems worth owning.

insurance payment when it is "Gone in 120 Seconds".  The Police Chiefs 
will love them in Tiajuana.

Another secret weapon of mass destruction from Saddam, a direct frontal 
assault on our economy through the petrol scam.

places on either side of my Tiger, and park 2 inches from my door. :-(
