Yeah, so I found myself stunned last night as the V2 accelerated as effortlessly with about 900lbs of people as it does with just me. Probably faster than my V1, even with all those people.

Good lord...

I have determined that rear tires are as much a consumable as gas with this beast.

I recently went to a Creed concert 50 miles away with a similar load. The ride there was great, the concert blew, and the ride home was even better. The car saved the evening.

And the shocks handle all that extra mass with aplomb(where's AAIIIC?). Twill be a great long distance cruiser...

Cars always sell better when you offer 5K off or 0% financing.

there seems to be a few mannytrannies in and around the mid-atlantic right now, but I am in the middle of the construction of my autodreamhaus (3 car garage in addition to the existing 2 car) so I need to finish (and pay for) that project first. Then in the spring, assuming that my income is not reduced to minimum wage by then, Lindsay (essentially down the street) will get first shot at making me a deal.....

Besides, having been through the early-adopter" experience with the V1, I see some benefit in waiting for a 2010 (though the "new model" issues seem quite minimal).

I just did a search on the caddy website for inventory near zip code 22101, and quite a few came up with manuals. I also accidentally entered 02210, which seems to be near norwood, mass, and some came up, too. They were 2010's, though, now that I think of it.

Since I am not seriously in the market till some after groundhog day, I did't bother to note colors.
When it comes time to purchase, everyone knows that the synergystic effect of photons on the metallic particles and pigments in silver paint makes it the fastest color.
