    and we right now have a pristine '95 960 sedan with 81k we are driving around to see if we want it.

    Not one bumper sticker on any of them,  and they are all ready to drive across the country if needed.

    Where we live, and the nature of my work,  reliability, durability  and road-worthiness are more important to me than saving a bit on fuel.

    I have no interest whatever in ever driving a truck again, so I have cars that are big enough to haul some stuff or pull a trailer  when I need.

    The 740T  is my "mid-life-crisis" hot rod that I worked all that speed shit out of my system with a decade ago.  I drive it around now and then just to remind myself why I now prefer plush smooth over harsh zoom.

    Being 67 might also have something to do with it...

    don't always believe what you think
