    ....and how the hell do you expect to take me up on my offer for an espresso in little italy if you can't even be more than 2 hours away?!?!?! Toronto is 4-5 hours mon-ami!!! LOLL

    So instead of an espresso con pana it will be an espresso con-rad hose perhaps hehehe (Jokes)

    Tabernack!

    How about Ottawa? It's about half way. And I'm guessing that you could score a decent espresso in our nation's capital. Or maybe I'll flatbed the car as far as Kingston...and roll the car in neutral (with my busted speedo-sensor) downhill to Toronto. Sorry 'bout Portugal...you have to wait for the World Cup in a couple of years.

    BTW, espresso con gelato is a great way to beat the heat. Per favore, non toccate la macchina!!!!!

    Cheers

    Things I have learned so far in no particular order:

    - you can drive a Ferrari in the rain
    - 328's have NO lumbar support, buy one from Walmart
    - the roof leaks when you park, driving it doesn't
    - minivan drivers seem obsessed with getting in front, NO matter what the risk
    - The more miles I put on the better it seems to run
    - you must keep moving to keep the engine cool when it is hot outside
    - A/C works, but keep the car moving, quicker the better, but best if you don't count on it, take the top off and drive fast
    - fuel economy is good at normal traffic flow speeds and oil consumption is zero
