You remind me of the scene in Pulp Fiction, and somehow I feel STEMO would have more of the Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) vibe about him than Pumpkin (Tim Roth).. (for anyone who doesn't get the reference, the first quote here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110912/characters/nm0001625)

Buying Astras, I learned the hard way that specification is important. Looking at Vectras, bottom spec LIFE has aircon, cruise, steering wheel audio controls, CD30 radio CD, steel wheels, all I want. Exclusiv and Design have alloy wheels with skinny tyres, SRi and Elite have 17" wheels with skinnier tyres.  I am no fan of low profile tyres, so am looking for Life or Exclusiv models.

I thank DG for bringing to my attention the importance of seeking the right spec of used cars.

Any comments?
Obviously, the interior features creep up as you go up the model range. Things like better quality seats, maybe heated seats, better radios and so on.

Work out what you want/need and the extra costs, and make your decision then.

Yes indeed one of the best guitar solos of all time (of course Felder was involved)  Eagles, Hotel California.   And for those who may not know it was.... lifeís been good to me so far, by the great Joe Walsh.

try Lucky That Way, which adds another couple of decades experience. The whole album is just as good: Analog Man

One day at a time also explains a lot about him. Ive been meaning to get hold of Analog man for  while, but haven't got round to it yet.  :y
I still remember how shocked I felt when I saw the headline in the NME (in 76 ?) " Joe Walsh joins the Eagles".
The only apparent reason was that they both had the same manager in Irving Azoff.
I thought at the time that the British equivalent would be "Eric Clapton joins the Bee Gees, as they were both managed by Robert Stigwood.
It worked out OK though, despite seeming a strange combination. Having said that I much prefer the earlier country rock Eagles stuff.
I thought Desperado was their best album by far.

Agreed, some have brilliant endings/fadeout, then some knobhead with verbal diarrhea starts talking crap over it. >:( :D
