Subject: Re: Difference in ARC and AERO


Bob, Point well taken. I'm going to test drive one this week-end still but after discussing further with our insurance carrier and daughter, we've come to the conclusion that she's better suited for a VW bug or Chrysler Sebring convertible, so that's where we will concentrate our efforts for her. However, after driving the Aero this coming Saturday, I might choose to get it for myself. Not sure yet but looking forward to it. Thanks for the concern and input. eaglewing "- Bob -" <uctraingnospamanet.com> wrote in message news:dojuu294vaqlb6nkph3odjjnnitlienbnunospamcom... > On Tue, 6 Mar 2007 16:42:54 -0600, <eaglewing> wrote: > >>Thanks Paul, >>Good feedback.
