Heh. I burned up the engine in my Corolla (fun nimble little car),
replaced it with a rebuilt one that promptly blew the head gasket, and
now I drive a (shudder) Plymouth Acclaim that my boss sold to me,
cheap. Automatic transmission, ponderous handling, *cruise control*, a
CV joint that complains above 65 mph, and it's No Damn Fun.

I feel old. But flying a mach 5 rocket plane will probably rejuvenate
me :)
