    Nice..looking forward to it.. I've been a happy Prime customer for years, and streaming to the TV w/ the Fire TV Stick is pretty easy..

    Meh...toys for the kiddies, waste of tooling $$$, doubt if they will sell..

    My 15 yr old Jeep and DTS are about as old of a car as I'd want as a daily driver, and they are nearing the end..getting too unreliable. (I should be driving my '11 STS more, but it's in California currently).  I couldn't imagine depending on something 25-50 yrs old, in the grind of daily traffic.  I've got to have reliability, cold A/C, and all the modern creature comforts as well as modern safety features, brakes and tires.  Old cars are neat as a weekend toy to go to car shows with, I wouldn't want one for the daily grind...

    I've never seen a '67 boxed as an MPC, don't know if there was one in addition to the AMT (which I have).  I don't have a '68, though the '80s street machine issue I have has '68 style side markers (molded in orange, 'The Avenger' box art).

    I wasn't sure..I have an AMT-boxed '67 annual and a built '69 MPC-boxed annual in my stash, but couldn't recall what engines they had.

    Could have just been a bad cell phone...I smashed my last one because it was junk...

    The MPC '67-69 Barracuda annuals had a 383 and a slant 6, I believe.   The street machine issues in the 80s had Hemis, and then they put a 383 back in sometime in the 90s IIRC.

    OUCH...argggggggghhhhh....pain and bleeding.  Came home from work, bent down in the kitchen to give one of my dogs her meds, and when I stood up I slammed the top of my head into the corner of an open cabinet door...  hurts like heck.
    Also, when I started to type in this window, it automatically pasted all my replies and quotes from yesterday..that's wrong...

    I need something I can drive everyday but also hop in and take a cross country road trip if I want to.. I don't trust my 15 yr old cars now (too many miles, had too many major issues), and my 4 yr old Cadillac being a now-obsolete model concerns me... time for something new for me..and something that gets 30-35mpg would be nice, better than the 16-25 I get now, esp. if I have a 50-75 mile daily round trip for work...even thought about doing something really radical and getting a diesel Jetta wagon (in brown of course).

    I'm more familiar with older Mercedes and BMWs...my sister has two high mileage Mercedes ('84 500SEL and '91 300CE) and they have been money pits over the decade she's had them and now they are paperweights in my back carport.   My BMW experience was much better.   Though I'm seriously thinking of going back to the blue oval for my next car...

    I wouldn't trust a Jaguar on a 20 mile trip...heard too many horror stories..    Cadillacs and my Jeep have been good to me, though.

    I'm still under 50  .even though I do like 'old man' cars like the Grand Marquis and Town Car, realistically I want something more 2015 than 1995 as far as the tech and something that gets better gas mileage... thinking maybe a 300, Charger, CTS, MKZ, MKS, maybe a Fusion or Taurus. Something comfortable for the daily grind and for road trips, and I really don't need an SUV this time..I've bought used before, but generally prefer to get something new and keep for 10 or more years..don't want something already 10 years old.

    One reason of late I've been reading up on and familiarizing myself w/ current car infotainment systems is I'm thinking of trading my vehicles in on something new before the end of the year... my commute will quite likely be getting longer in the near future, a move to a higher traffic metro area in the next 6 months is likely, and 15 yr old vehicles w/ 130k and 160k won't cut it anymore..need something new (and too many old car repairs starting to be needed).  My '11 STS, while I enjoy it, is kind of dated..it's basically an '05 design that wasn't updated much (and it's starting to have reliablity issues, even w/ only 40k miles)

    I swear I think alot of people on here haven't spent any time in a late model car..they seem to have no comprehension of the typical infotainment systems of today.  SMH

    To listen to my music...same reason people used CDs and cassettes in cars (have you seen those types of media)?  And I wouldn't drive a 2500 lb car...my cars are over 4000lbs and my Jeep is almost 5000lbs. .:)
