A few months ago I stopped to speak to a fellow--middle-aged, like me--who
was driving a nice, pearl '91 V8 5 spd. As we talked, I sensed a--shall we
say--"lack of enthusiasm" on his part (except he loved the car). When I
asked if he knew that his car's siblings in the USA could be numbered on
the fingers and toes of about 2 or 3 people, he was visibly shaken. He had
figured "V8s is V8s".
