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.
