    Excise here in Taxachusetts is the opposite. The best they could
    figure on my V8 is Make:Audi  Model:Guato.
    Based on the $25 per thousand excise, and my bill for
    $110 means it's valued at a tad over 4K.  (Wonder if the 
    city has any for sale..)  A local Porsche owner with
    a '69 911 racer (insured for 100K) pays $11.00 in excise
    a year.

    Go figure.
