Hi Joel,

Well no, that would not be fun.  But in an '85 GTI?  That's a lot
shorter, a lot more nimble, and a lot more fun.

When I'ma driving "the rig" [1] I don't want nothing to do with no

MacaDonalds, apparently having flunked elementary physics and thinking I
can stop this mass 'o mass as quickly as their little grumble bee!

drive.  Not to mention the mental gymnastics required to calculate
whether you can get that gorilla in _and_ back out of the next gas
station / rest stop!
