Re: Whoa...

Well I can't understand all of this.  Most people who ride in my car marvel
at the smoothness and quietness of the engine.  Those who I let drive it are
amazed when they look at the tach and see how easily it revs above 5K. In
fact, I went with my ex-boss to test drive a Catera and afterwards he could
not get over how much quieter, and smoother (not to mention faster) my six
year old Audi was (he bought a Continental).  BTW, does Cadillac still put
that GM turn signal stalk in their Northstar cars?  You know, the one which
sounds and feels like it is breaking each time you use it -  with the white
lettering that rubs off after 2 years?
