While I'm over here in Europe, I've been hauling around the Powerbook laptop. Whenever anyone looks at the desktop picture I have of the Ranchero I have on the Powerbook, they are always impressed at what it is... and I have to explain about what it is. For example, at the Saturday Lincolnshire Amiga Group meeting and at the Sunday Amiga North Thames meeting, I tell them it has a 6.6L V8 engine and takes premium gasoline, and they roll their eyes in amazement, saying that the engine is too big and that with gasoline prices being the way they are, the vehicle would be very expensive to maintain.
I also tell them it's a "20-footer", i.e., from 20 or more feet away, it looks great but get any nearer and then you start seeing its defects.
