    I understand that only too well... That's one of the reasons my 89 went bye bye and I switched to a sport/touring car that old farts with bad knees could climb in and out of.

    I don't like making plans for the day. The word "premeditated" is not useful when it gets thrown around a courtroom.

    My current vehicle helped alot, too. 8 hour drives are a breeze. Very quiet inside, I can climb in and out easily and lots of trunk space. I can even carry all the "extras" the wife has to have on road trips. My only complaints are premium gas only and the Brits put a limiter on it. Darn thing won't let it get above 153.
