RE: [DML] American/British/Irish/whatever

"they" love our cars?

Let's all try a science experiment.
Next car show, set up a video or audio recrding device at the rear of the 
hidden and out of site. Have the engine bay open with specs about the engine
clearly posted...then go hide and listen to the recording and see what 
people are
saying about the engine while looking at it.
Let's postpone this discussion until there is some scientific research in 
the field
to base theory on.
