sorry EZ Gruv
i got to agree with Bisbeetle on this one

going back to when this thread started...
people posted the date & stats at that time

if you subtract the numbers i posted on 1.11.11
from the current stats

then you can see valid & current stat on today's drivers

i believe that was the point of posting
the current stats every so often is to keep this thread
valid & current

it also allows you to see what we were driving in 2005
& in 2011

without having 2 threads on the same subject


as long as we post what the stats are once or twice a year (not every week)
then the big numbers can be dissected into hundreds of
subcategory's with interesting info

What IS IT with this forum??? If you start a new thread on a subject, five people will point you to all the old ones on the same subject, and the moderators will lock it. Yet, if you revive an old thread, someone will bitch about how old it is.

This thread is so ancient most of the previous voters likely have different answers/buses now.
Completely invalid thread at this point.
