Since the narrow-tipped rotor is only spec'ed for a car that was
produced one year, produced a long 18 years ago, and probably some
owners don't even know that a regular wide-tipped rotor isn't the
right one, it's not so surprising to me that many places stopped
carrying it altogether.

But at least we can file down a wide one to make a narrow one.  Too
bad we can't do something like that to make a plastic gear into a
metal one, make a cheaper plug into an expensive F5DPOR, or convert
DOT lights to euro spec.  Compared to those, I think we got a bit of a
break on the rotor thing, as far as replacement parts for these aging
cars go.
