I missed the earlier part of this thread, but I do recall that someone wrote
a letter to AutoWeek a few years ago about a 959 sighting on the Golden Gate
Bridge. The EPA (or whichever Nazis they are that are protecting us) put
together quite an investigation as a result. They probably knew that there
was a real possibility that one of these three digit mosters was endangering
the safety of the public, and needed to make sure that the perpetrators
filled the coffers.
Cynical? ... ME cynical?
