    I just wonder how many people turned in thier "safe" clunkers for one that does not stop?
    Is it fair to say, that just coming out but, they had reports of this few years back?

    After 8 of my teenage friends back in high school died in Volkswagan bugs and one in a TR3, I made sure my kids as teenagers had the largest clunker around.
