Nice post Bruce. One of your better ones, in fact.

Maybe the days of "race car engines" in street cars are over. It's certainly possible given that fuel economy concerns are becoming very political now, and of course there are more efficient ways to get from A to B. Nevertheless, I'll miss the high-revving M if it is really to be a thing of the past. I've grown to love these cars and letting go is very hard to do.
