I'm glad Santa was so good to you with all the goodies. Now, I have to ask:
what's a Paddy Hopkirk throttle pedal??  (I'm hopin' you're going to say 1)
"it's a fat throttle that is easier on your foot," or 2) "it's an MG version
of cruise control for a long drive" like to Alaska!

Hmmm....Bill are you trying to tell me the "yuppie craze" is over??! If so,
I'd better get the word to the rest of the folks in San Antonio!! For
whatever reason, this town is a bit slow on understanding what's "in" and
what's "out!" No kidding...

M**t*s have finally "settled down" as to the attitudes of the owners, but
Beamers are still way out there, along with Lexus. Neither are worth the
money, IMO! 

Carol (I could'a been a yuppie, but bought a beautiful old 'Vette, instead.)

BTW, it ~was~ an eye-catcher AND a dude cruiser! Men loved it, and some of
them came down with serious cases of "stupid" asking if they could borrow
the car "to see how it ran." Right!! Did that once for a former boyfriend,
and didn't see the car for a whole day!! Can you say "chick magnet," too?!)
