I always get grilled about my 2.3 "not having any balls". I was gonna buy some truck nuts for pretty much the same reason you did. Someone says that, reach in the box "what do you mean, their right here"

Driver seat, steering wheel and pedals that automatically adjust for the current driver.
A friend of mine has a Caddy that does this.

I don't know if this has been listed or not, but I seen this today. I was following a van(it was a newer van, don't know what type, didn't bother to look), but it not only had both taillights out, but the top light too. So the only way I knew he was stopping was that I slowed down to 10/40. I found out that when one of my taillights go out, my car doesn't work. haha I guess something a brilliant chevy person thought of lol
