Ahh. Now we're getting somewhere.  The best car-guy column ever 
written, hands down, goes way back to when I was a kid.  Patrick Bedard 
wrote a column in Car and Driver called "The Slow Car as a Moving 
Experience". In it, he compared his recent experience driving a Fiat X 
1/9 vs a Ferrari 308.  As he noted, the Fiat allowed him to run to 
redline, tires squealing, through the gears, in DC traffic without ever 
compromising his license.

He gets it.
