Re: Interesting Sailboats
I've had a pretty even mix of Euro & American cars. So far, the best car for utility, speed, handling, comfort, economy & reliability was a C5 Corvette. The nicest "Just makes you feel good" car is our current Jaguar XJR.
The worst? No question - the Porsches - rusted early, insane parts prices, run of the mill build quality, sketchy handling (in the rear engine models) - overall they were the most overrated and overpriced cars I have ever experienced.
In my part of town, along the #1 highway, the cars most frequently seen dead at the side of the road or being pulled onto flatbeds are Benz's and BMW's.
Average IQ snobbery aside, Euro cars are built for narrow winding roads and American cars are built for the open road - Obviously there are exceptions like my XJR but that is the essential difference driving their personalities.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
