Brock ... no problems ...

I think it's time we all looked at the cars we use ... my wife has a 8 km ROUND TRIP daily commute (!) yet insists on driving her Lexus IS 200 to and from work ... she wouldn't be seen in something like a 'Smart Car' (you know the one ... freaky looking dinky car!) that would get excellent mileage and be cheaper to run!

Personally, I have never understood the fascination with pickup trucks and SUVs that there is in the US.

I've never understood Hong Kong's fascination with huge Mercedez Benz cars, either ... I think we have the highest number of MBs and Rolls Royces per capita anywhere in the world ... and it's such a small place!

Of course, I'm being a hypocrite because one of those big 'Maxi scooters' made by Honda / Yamaha / Suzuki would get better mileage than my S ... but they wouldn't be so much fun!

Cheers,

Nick
