    In that case, you get your bicycle, I'll get my car, we'll drive them toward each other. The one who walks away is the real man.

    C'mon. Chicken.

    Okay. I'll dodge at the last minute because I can turn on a dime, and go on the grass, while you plow into a tree. Better yet, I'll ride on a nice car-free trail. No, I'll ride and stay healthy with lots of exercise while you slowly die of heart disease or stress.

    I know, cheating.

    My car turns on a dime. I don't drive trucks or SUVs. I drive a little 4-cylinder geek-machine.

    And if you go on a bike trail or something, I'll just get my gun out and shoot you. I'm an American, dammit.

    Well, I'm an American too, so my bike has a backup twin-turbocharged 350cc V8 engine and a handlebar-mounted .50 caliber M2 Browning machine gun.

    People get out of my way.

    All of them except style are important. Right now though I think cost of operation and MPG most important things to consider. I had a 2002 Mustang GT but had to sell it since it was costing me every day to fill it up.

    OTHER !

    It is a combination or a ranking wihin a hierarchy of which factors are most important to you.

    I really like the 'other ' factor !!! That is the most important reason to buy a car ..

    Well my newest American ( Ford) made SUV-CROSS-OVER has front and back mounted heat seeking missles which fly up the tail-pipes of those who get in my way or otherwise piss me off.

    I also have a rapid firing gattling mounted so that it has 360* field of fire for those that I need to get their attention !!

    Works great !!!
