    Makes you wonder how long some of these people would have lasted on the American frontier in the year 1815. I'd be inclined to guess they'd be bear food.

    Ever have someone open the door of their parked car right in front of you, so that you have to swerve into the other lane, and then they GLARE at you like *you* did something wrong? Makes me want to back up and try again.

    @Driver----hey, wait a minute....30% + 5% expenses split by both parties equals 81,250,000. They're trying to CHEAT you! B)

    So I'm passing a car that's on my right on a 3-lane freeway. As I approach, a Mercedes passes ME on the right and cuts in between the space between me and the car I'm passing--at a high rate of speed. Then veers right to exit, tail-gating large truck.

    Live expectancy?---maybe two weeks.

    Steward is correct, that is a mid-60s Thomas Cheetah using Corvette Stingray mechanicals and an Aluminum body/chassis.
    It was designed by a guy named Bill Thomas to try and beat the Shelby Cobra-Fords which it did on several occasions but not consistently due to various design problems including tendencies to overheat both drivers and motors

    If I remember correctly, the Cheetah was unique in that there was no driveshaft. The transmission was hooked up directly to the differential. Seems plausible, when you look at the thing. It has Death Wish written all over it, doesn't it?
