Sorry for the Roger style ramble but I'm in need of some "serious car
guy wisdom" and where better to go than you maniac V8 guys. My V8 that
has been my loyal everyday vehicle for the last 8.5 years was hit in a
parking lot. The quarter panel and tail light assembly took the hit. The
car still runs fine and I still have bulbs back there. The interesting
bit is the other drivers insurance is giving me $3300.00 to total it and
I keep the car. I won't put the money in it to fix it properly so
someone will get a nice running V8 when I sell it. My question to all
you maniac listers is what car next. You may think I'm crazy but I want
something from this decade, preferably with all wheel drive but at least
front wheel drive. I was thinking about an A6 with the 2.7 L and turbo
but they don't seem very reliable. Does anybody know what year Acura
fixed their transmission problems? I need some interior room at 6'2" 235
the V8 was about as small as I can go. I'll miss the V8 and if I had
access to a really fine specimen I'd consider it but there aren't any
around here that I'm aware of. I know most if you folks are pretty
serious car guys so I'm interested in your thoughts. Thanks, William
