If you want to come up to Alaska I'd gladly trade you my ACN for your
AWY. I can't get up any hills in 5th on the 94 1.6TD (gasser
conversion), so unless I want to smoke everyone out, I've got to keep
4th down to 55mph.
Personally I LOOOOVE the AVX in my 91 eco. Yeah It screams, but I can
scream at 75 up the hills.
