The P1800 was a nice car, but I think my 544 was faster because it was lighter and had the same running gear. Of course the 544 wasn't as pretty. Many years ago I drove a P1800 about 1,000 miles in a strange trip involving many illegal events which the car's owner didn't tell me about right away. Eventually, I flew home to get away. The car was fun to drive though the speedometer didn't work and the car surely wanted to go faster than 55. Last time I saw the car, he had pretty much destroyed what had been a very well preserved car.

When the P-1800 first came out I was 17 and a dyed in the wool European car fan. I took one look at the swept up chrome strips and rear fins and said, "what the heck is that, a small Dodge? However over the years it has grown on me to some extent.

Made a few changes....no up-swept chrome or stainless grill surround.
2000cc built B-18 engine, dual 45DCOE Webers, 175hp, full Koni suspension.
Great little Autocross unit.

Left handed people are significantly smarter than either right handed or ambidextrous people. This is due to the fact that, as soon as they start using their hands, they must adapt to nearly everyone else doing things backwards and making all the tools for use in the wrong hand.

Ever notice that when someone says, "Penny for your thoughts?" we always give them our two cents' worth?

I live in the Denver area , so I'm prejudice. However I lived the first 50 years and 11 days of my life in Seattle area, So I'm prejudice that way too. I argue about it with myself all the time. I have decided that you're only the best team if you can win the most important game.

I decided several years ago that there is no way I am going to let the results of a game played by a bunch of millionaires have any effect on how I feel.

How's that for failing to take the bait.

I agree except that ambidextrous people are usually left handed, but adapt to the right handed imperialists' way of doing things to survive.

Every time I see a right handed person switching knife and fork back and forth to eat because their vestigial left hands can't cut anything or even hold a knife without dropping it on the floor, I think how ungainly they are. I'd feel sorry for them except they make us read and write backwards.

I heard about a new proposed law in Kansas, as a rider to their new revised corporal punishment statute (not yet successfully through the state senate), that will require all lefty's to wear a dog shock collar, automatically getting zapped when they try to use their left hand for eating. As long as it doesn't leave a mark, they say.....

Forgive me but i have to confess my shame, born into my RH bigotry through no fault of my own, that my fork never leaves my left hand.

My whole life I have watched left handers doing the knife juggle too but have been silent as not to offend a minority.

Whew. There. I feel so liberated. Silent no more.

I think it's less of a rightie/leftie thing as it is an American-Canadian/European thing. North America may be the only place in the world where knife and fork are used in the same hand; everywhere else, they're used in opposite hands, with the knife wisely in your primary hand so you can maintain better control of it.

Of course, in most of the world the food is precut into bite-sized pieces, diners use chopsticks in their primary hand, and there isn't even a knife on the table.

And in Texas, where high-fallutin' etiquette is something New Yorkers do, the usual method is to grab that hunk of meat in both hands, and tear off a chunk with your teeth. Knives are for picking scraps of meat out of your teeth afterwards!

For the record, I eat European style most of the time.
