Just goes to show how really out of touch you are. That "old man" that is giving ME the thumbs up, is just shy of 4 months older than I am.

Doesn't matter what car I'm driving. I use the cruise control all the time when on the highway. Keeps me at 4 over and out of jail.

A good engineer/business manager doesn't design/market his product to suit 5% of his potential customers while giving the finger to the remaining 95%.

I don't drive my Corvettes to ATM's, drive up banks, drive through fast food joints, drive by mail boxes, etc.

That's why I also have a taller 4 door sedan for those mundane tasks.
