    Jeff, you do realize you could have just as easily been saying, “It’s a W123—get some tin snips; make it fit. How hard can it be?”

      Nah, that Hemi is wide and there’s no room for steering… I get what you’re saying though

        Just taking advantage of an opportunity to bust your chops. After all, YOU brought up the Wombat.

        There’s an obvious solution you haven’t considered: simply mount the engine behind the front seat. BOOM, Steering issue SOLVED.

          Or a rope-drive steering shaft!

    Good luck with house hunting! I can’t speak for the SoCal market, but when we were looking, EVERYTHING that interested us (admittedly, right at the bottom end of the freehold price range) had asbestos to deal with. I also suppose the press cars really justify a proper garage, but would anything with a driveway work as a reasonable compromise (if you had room for a shed to lock up tools, and somewhere for adequate office space)?

    I also get the “I’ve made good decisions in life” thing with Range Rovers, but I’ll bet that evaporates the first time you see it drive away on a flatbed. Doesn’t mean I don’t want an older one.

    With the ILX A-Spec, since it’s basically a more adult Civic Si, is it really that bad? I know a lot of the 9th gen’s issues were from cheaping out, which going for the most expensive Acura version negates a little. Also, I haven’t been completely blown away by the new Civic (what happened to the flat rear floor?), And if you’re stuck on a new car, the turbo saddles you with an auto for another year or so, the ILX is a fantastic stick right now.

    Great show guys! Congrats to Jeff on the producer gig with Top Gear… Congrats to Chris on the upcoming sale too.

    The 1LE camaro will match the GT350 and the ZL1 and z28 will eat the better looking gt350r …

    Still I think the z28 will get a LT1 with a hotter cam and tune to reach 525 hp…

    By the way you guys wear stinky pants….(kidding of course)

    Always enjoy your shows.
