Seems our friends, like Civis Romanus Sum with their ten year old Toyotas,
that patrol the other brand NGs are merely jealous that they can not afford
the new bigger, safer, vehicles that are available on the market today.
Perhaps if you were inclined to contribute something to a discussion
beyond your cut-and-pastes from the Detroit Free Press (do you do that
because you think others need your assistance or simply because you
support the theme of the quotation?) or your other terse

created, but WTF, apparently no one cares!
