    OK, then, but you can't criticize Strange Brew, particularly if you're not Canadian.

    A 2005 Toyota Camry from Cendant Corp.

    When I used to work for Budget Rent-A-Car and was not "The Boss" I would politely ask my main boss to take a car from the lot which I wrote down the miles that it had before I took it off the lot. I picked out a Navigator or a Cadillac Deville and went home for the weekend.

    Also I used to Inspect Machines for DynCorp.com which has been sold to IronPlanet.com recently. They paid me a lot driving my own car , $200 an inspection which took me around an hour to inspect a machine depending on how bad of a shape it was in. I had to be precise on everything I wrote down on it though since the particular machince I was inspecting was going up for Auction across the US and possibly the International market too. Anything over 100 miles they paid me .65 cents a mile which I rarely got to see. I would wait for 3 inspections relativly close and one day go out and inspect those machinces so I wouldn't waste all my gas.

    2005 Toyota Camry. Hey, it's no Mercedes SL, but nothing beats a brand new car, insurance, gas and maintenance that you don't pay for! :)

    Let's see if I can top Dane's company ride. Mine seats (and sleeps!) 146 comfortably. 0-10 in, well it's a little while but it will do it! Gets about 250 gpm. Oh, plus it comes standard with gymnasium, sauna, restaurant and cinema.

    Oh, and if you think I must be driving some ultra-exotic, nope. It's a Hyundai. Built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2000.

    If Dane ever wants to stop by, I've even got a special parking spot for him. I can even top him off with a little jet A-1 if he needs it.

    Uses 250 gallons of diesel to move one nautical mile. The rig displaces 52,000 metric tons and has six 18-cylinder diesel engines developing about 9775 hp each. (total electricity production is 42,000 kilowatts, that's a lot of lightbulbs).
