Does this gesture mean she's "cutting you some slack" so you can buy more radios? ...Didn't think so.

No, she was loving but clear in her dictate: No more cars.

I drove the Fit to work for 3 days and I was getting cut off with such insouciance that my testosterone was rising to dangerous levels.

I might have kept it had I got the auto. My past days of enjoying manual have been replaced with an OCD that makes me fret that I'm always in the wrong gear.

In the end I am truly embarrassed more than I am poor.

Jeff, here's a link that offers some neat photos of Datsuns or Nissans over the last 50 years:

I still remember when Datsun made the switch to Nissan.

I hear their sales, like most auto companies, are down.

Back in 1968, I bought a white Datsun 510 from Torrance Datsun where the Honda dealer is located last time I looked.

BTW, I drove to Prescott, AZ yesterday just to spend the day and the traffic was very light and I only saw 2 RVs in my 180 mile round trip. Usually, tons of RVs on a holiday weekend heading north on I-10 and I-17, we're starting to see some major life style changes in America now!!!

At least I only drive 4,000 miles on the Max.
