You may need new glasses. LOL OT When I waited at the bus stop as a middle schooler, circa 1990, there was a spoiled rich kid who went to one of those montessorri learn-at-no-pace schools up the road from me, and he had a crash-bumper torino. I can imagine his parents buying it thinking their precious hellion would be safe in two-plus tons of american steel, and darn the other guy. He always turned the corner then floored it through 2nd gear off towards the school. I never heard him hit 3rd-- he spent most of a mile in 2nd. Probably had 2.56 gears or something. Utter malaise.

Just watched that movie this weekend. Tried to keep count of how many they ruined by the end of the movie. Love that car.
