[DMCForum] Re: Rubbing Martin's Fur Backwards



Don't know which irritates you more:
- That I drive wonderful old automobiles
- That I am in total bliss doing so
Either way, it's worth driving them just to watch you squirm.

It actually is to my advantage that you DON'T look at motoring the
same way I do. You won't be competing with me for a finite number of
remaining autos.

I find it hard to take seriously automotive advice from people who
change cars every 4 or 5 years. If I had to move to a new house or
marry a new wife as often as some people buy a new car, I'd quickly go
mad.
