internal caliper brakes.. part 2

Just spoke to the mechanic today.  He says that the old front end with
the internal caliper brakes weigh 220 pounds each, while the new ones
weigh 150.  My car has just lost 140 pounds, all of it in unsprung
weight at the front end!!  No wonder if feels so damm agile now.

Speaking of numbers I enquired what a 60K service for a V8 will cost.
If they replace OXS and the timing belt, it would run to 3 grand..
the 8 "special" NGK plugs will cost more than $100.  perhaps i can
mail order those when the time comes...
