Thanks folks. Appreciate your time. Auto Show in town this weekend, I'll take another look and then the real test. My wise old Father taught me 2 ways to drive. All the way on the gas or all the way on the brakes.
Like DTRAIN said, go for a test drive, Dale! It all depends how you drive sometimes..
In addition, check out the performance section of the forums. Definitely some aftermarket items to consider if you're concerned about HP, merging traffic, putting a fridge inside for those long drives..
Master Shake - Thanks - I may be old but my right foot is made of lead. Keep the wheels on the road, and stay warm. As our Southern California and Texas friends will agree, Keep the Cold up north. The weather got below 80 in south Texas, so we had to park the cars for the Winter. We'll get them out again once the weather warms up again.
