Thanks for the insightful negotiating statagys mc,

In light of shipping cost for the "gem" to cross pond, I googed "cheapest car in the US"

1. Nissan Versa 1.6 S: $11,750 (including destination charge)

You might be surprised to learn that the lowest-priced new car in America is not some ancient, long-ago-paid-for design, but rather an all-new-for-2012 model. Meet the Nissan Versa, which offers as much interior space as a mid-size sedan plus Nissan's legendary reliability and longevity, all for half the price of a base-model Toyota Camry. Cheap as it is, the Versa is far from stripped-down -- it comes with air conditioning and a CD stereo as standard equipment. There is a bit of a catch: An automatic transmission will cost you $1,770, about twice the going rate. But even so equipped, you can't beat the Versa for affordable, reliable family transportation. A fitting car to take the #1 spot on this list.

Seems like a great deal. I would just keep the stick, screw the A/T for $1770!!! I would  "reinvest" that $1770 into getting QP's for Pick 4, MM,

PB, MegaMillions+, Hot Lotto, Mass Cash, Megabucks Doubler and Lucky For Life.   Naughty

    Let's say you win 1million, which is prob 600k after taxes... What kind of car would you get?  I'd either get a 2-4yr old Porsche 911 cabrio or a 370Z Roadster.  Gonna pick up my tickets later today for tomorrow and Wed's drawing=)

    I would buy a tiny smart car (I have seen a rose colored one around here) and hire clowns and see how many of them could fit into it and still drive it. Then, I would have them go up and down Pennsylvania Avenue and then pull up to various bus stops.The first person that joined their ride, would get $1000 from mel

                I googled "All The Information In The World", and the results would contain several thousand "petabytes" of information.

                1 petabyte is approx. the equivalent of 20 million, four drawer filing cabinets of information. That would be enough to fill all 102 floors of the Empire

                State building with wall to wall filing cabinets.   Type

                 

                It is estimated that there is currently not enough storage space, of all existing storage media, to contain all  past and present information on all

                subjects of human history, events, books, languages, and technical data.  Eek

                  I remember when I bought my first home pc in 1996 (I even kept the ad from Best Buy). It had 24 MB of memory! I deal with single photos that are that large now.

                    Just imagine in another 20 years how much that will grow. A storage device the size of a postage stamp, may be able to hold all records of

                    the Library of Congress. The very earliest IBM computers had storage mediums that occupied an entire office floor. Your 1996 computer probably

                    exceeded that capacity and then some!

                      I recently bought a 3TB external hard drive for photos and they used 3/100th's of the space on the new drive.

                        I was just out to a house that had a 35' Chevy pick-up sitting in the driveway. It was backed in and had a brown bear head mounted in the drivers seat looking out with a very unhappy look on his face. Next time I'm in the area I will get a photo.
