We certainly have been a car motor family for many decades. I remember as a kid having many "donor" Eldorados as yard art.

Re: Fatal Crash Polk County, Florida

So unfortunate a way to loose a life. God bless all affected by this tragedy.
If common sense were in better demand these days, this type of thing would be less frequent. I was almost decapitated once, due to a mechanical failure of a steering component.... it can happen anywhere, anytime.
