In the early 1980's I was teaching microprocessor theory. I ran across an article that talked about Ford contracting with Intel to produce its first on board computer. In the first year of production over half the units were pulled as defective and returned to Ford. Upon testing, 95% were found to be fully functional. Raz

Hey Norm... here's somebody who kept the Porsche when he hit the road!

Hey, why worry about old technology like 'smart' cars - I'm waiting for delivery of the personal jet back-pack that I ordered several decades ago......

Rob and Linda,

I'm sure that the Porsche could tow our Scamp but at the time we had a motorhome and had not even considered a small trailer. We parked it with a for sale sign down at the beach and sold it in hours. It paid for a good part of the motorhome.

Owning the Porsche was an emotional thing, it was on my list of life to dos because of my Dad, fun but not necessary. The Honda CRV was much more appropriate for towing our small trailers, particularly for crossing Labrador.
