    What do Click and Clack have in common with the founder of Toyota?

    Both will be introduced into the automotive Hall of Fame!

    They are fascinating folks, yet on completely different levels. I have much respect for all three. Tom and Ray Magliozzi on "Car Talk" had wonderful humor, if a bit long-winded; it needed a "highlights" reel! (And they started by running a DIY garage, something that no longer exists.) Toyota arguably makes "boring" cars - save several notable exceptions - but the Toyota contribution to lean production and process is incredible.

    Speaking of Toyota and boring cars. This is an exception:

    When the price area says "inquire" I know it's probably way out of my range!

    My daily drive is a 99 Corolla, runs like a top. Doesn't matter if its 100 out or -10, starts and goes all the time. Can sit out in the parking lot in the heat, cold, rain and snow and I don't worry about it. Can't ask for more.

    Precisely why when Mitsy declared she wanted to get a reliable daily driver, I told her she could get anything she wanted, as long as it was "Grandma's Camry".

    Took a couple months of hunting but instead of Grandma's, we found a one-owner 2002 Camry, all records including oil changes and tire replacements. Folder over an inch thick. Owned by a Chinese engineer. Th' Mits is a happy camper.
