A note for those not aware of what Long Island driving is like:
It is hell on a car. The ultimate stop n go. In recent years the communities
have become obsessed with putting stop signs every 50 ft. Traffic is
phenomenal at times. You will race along at 75 for 15 min and then come to
a complete stop for no reason - no rubbernecking or anything. A cut-throat
brand of jackrabbit takeoff/maneuvering that trains you to take on anything.
Not that I'm complaining, since I learned in that atmosphere and fear
nothing, but used cars from that area of the country are all extreme service
