"The SR71, this is what an airplane is supposed to be. She's ugly on the ground, leaks like a sieve, but up around Mach 1, the seals all expand, she dries up, leans into the wind and flies like a bat out of hell. I took her right to the limit, 128,000 feet." -Tommy Lee Jones aka Hawk Hawkins in Space Cowboys. Reminds me of a certain car, minus the ugly part.
