Just so you feel ok John, the official car of the SIAI is a very safe and
heavy 2000 model year BMW X5 SUV with 4.4L V8 in case we need to ever make
a quick getaway. Complete with license plate that says "UPLOAD" just in
case we have a Singularity before the one we plan :-)

P.S. He-who-must-be-protected also rides only in the rear passenger seats
     generally. Zero possibility of head-to-windshield contact :-)
