I drove a Range Rover once. *High* centre of gravity. Squidgy suspension.
It didn't have quite the same cornering ability as my own humble Audi, let
alone an Ur-Quattro.
So the Range Rover wins the pulling contest, and the Audi wins the race. As
a deciding match, lets have a fiscal endurance contest. The person who can
drive their vehicle the furthest without going bankrupt is the winner.
Should be a very fair match.
