    Somebody will always sell you their place in line for the right fee. I remember one time when I paid over sticker for a measly Mazda RX7, when they changed models and never looked back.

    Now that the new has worn off, we can expect to hear more of incidents like this...
    It was bound to happen sooner or later. The 2020 C8 Chevrolet Corvette was just revealed last month and already drivers are wrecking them on the streets.

    I don't know which one of you overpaid capitalist goobers here will be the first to take delivery on your branny-new midengine 'Vette, but if you're actually expecting that factory-promised 495 HP, well, guess again......Ben

    And they were the first to question their own conclusions, thereby retaining some credibility...There's a lesson to be learned there by some political analysts......Ben

    About 15 years ago I did a small job for a conveyor company at the Ford Engine plant in Cleveland Ohio.

    One day, as I was signing in, I saw a line of workers---waiting to take a spin in the then version of the GT---but it was all within the plant parking lot.

    Apparently these guys didn't have that restriction.
