However, it is too low to drive over bicycles at 65 mph (takes out the oil pan among other things). And it is NO match for a bear - hitting one at 55 mph will not kill the bear (at least highway patrol didn't see it beside the road) but the insurance company almost totaled it (but ended up replacing the front end).
Hi Harriet,

Thanks for the heads up! Bears and bikes are high priority targets for Chicagoans, so I guess that I can eliminate this model for future consideration. . . Just kidding.:-)


Hi Dawg,

Congrats on the new car! I'm hoping that I can get another couple of years out of mine. . . it's only 11 years young right now. . .

Congrats, Dawg. Fine looking little car. Hope it rode well through the round of storms Saturday afternoon. I was on way back from Nashville area in a U-Haul with auto trailer when they hit. (Son was casualty of large permanent layoff from Bridgestone, so I had to help him move back to Arkansas.) Got in the truck at 70 degrees in Antioch....got out in the low 40's in Arkansas.

Dawg, I'd love to say that I'm with you on the Fit...but I work for the other big name that starts with a T and may get fired for saying something nice about it:-)

Nice images though...you sure you did not just scan them from the brochure
Thanks but no scans here! Actually the company I work for has a joint venture with two Japanese companies to manufacture OEM gaskets for both Honda and Toyota. They cannot make them in the same building though.

Thanks Scott. My truck was 13 years old and had over 216,000 miles on it when I let it go. I always keep one till the wheels start to fall off.

Paul, I'm sorry to hear of your Son's misfortune. Weather this time of year is problematic at best. Glad you all got there safe.

Hey BD,
you got two of em didn't you? one for each foot.


What are you doing... trying to assimilate, I mean stimulate the economy? :G
seriously though, I can understand going for a millage saver but, you're gonna miss that pick em up. I got rid of my F250 Super duty about 4 years ago and many times I wish I had it, just couldn't afford or justify it anymore.
really nice photo spread!
GW:bye:
