Blue I threw myself under the bus. If I would have asked the question right, you would have had the right answer, but when I asked what is the Riley Nine, Brian was right when he called it a porn car, or something like that. I don't even know what that word means.

Now Dave comes up with two cars, same name, different spelling, I really think I went bust on that question.

I did think the answer was pretty neat. Great answer to what have could have been a great question IMHO.
