Wow, that was a weird second when I saw your message in the inbox.  I had
an uncle, Todd Young, who passed away a couple of years ago...

Yes, that is (to me) the major difference to me between the two cars.  I
drive around town mostly in second...  It's the same with the Porsche clan,
they stick to second around the city blocks.

Enjoy that 90S, I enjoyed mine!
