Hey Dan,

You're so right. I'll never forget the new SL I saw a few years ago cruising just under the speed limit with a bunch of guys who looked though they didn't have a care in the world. Assuming they weren't chemically affected, it was a very impressive display of courteous driving.

I drive that way in my '91 Daimler (without chemicals ), and when I also do it in my SL500 it seems to create a 'bubble' of respect around me.

But keep up with the loonies and I'm just another wannabe.
