     The extra weight you're hauling around with a wagon vs. a sedan makes 
     a difference combined with the general sluggishness of most 
     automatics.  But once you get up to speed they will cruise 
     effortlessly at license revoking speeds.

     Ours works OK here in Albuquerque (large valley, most transmitters on 
     mountains to the east), but in general, wire in the glass antennas are 
     pretty pathetic.

     I agree.  Because of the rarity, this is not the kind of vehicle you 
     shop around for, comparing prices as you would for a "transportation 
     appliance".  If you find one and you want it, get the best deal you 
     can but don't hesitate.
