    That was her question to the "Trainers" they told her to begin the announcement without a preamble... seems a bit rude to me.. Good morning/ afternoon, evening everyone was my suggestion. ( and Keep it down in the cheap seats! )

    Car 'Collectors' who don't drive them but just see them as a commodity are pushing up prices... a collector will buy it and stick it in a garage for a few more years... future classic? I think so.
