"I don't think you can physically do two programs. It would be complicated. Doing Le Mans or Indianapolis or Daytona, why not; it's a one-off. But more than this it is definitely a distraction from his main commitment."
Some of society's most pressing challenges -- “safety, water pollution, urban problems, housing” -- have to be solved by what he called “a partnership between the private and public sectors.”
But it don’t come cheap. The window sticker on my ride was $110,250. Yikes! But you could easily pay five times that for a really big Class A home. I later attended the California RV Show -- celebrating its 65th year with thousands of RVs -- at the fabulous Fairplex in Pomona. There I saw a show special Thor Vegas for just 79 grand. So go to a show and get a deal. Or buy a 10-year-old rig for a fraction of the price. The industry is huge for new RVs but even huger for used. Shop around. But if you do decide to go new, you will not be disappointed with a Thor Vegas, baby.

The result is an awkwardly inconsistent ride, with the 575 jittering over cracked road surfaces and the occasional expansion joint. Both the Mercedes-AMG S63 and BMW M760Li work far better as continent-crushing luxo-barges.
Miller, raised on a Nebraska farm and educated at UCLA and later Harvard University, was the last surviving member of the so-called Whiz Kids, a group of ten young men who famously persuaded Henry Ford II to hire them in the late 1940s from the Ivy League school, where they mastered statistical analysis for the U.S. military during World War II.
As standard, every X2 will come with BMW's iDrive infotainment and navigation system presented on a 6.5in screen (although that can grow to an 8.8in touchscreen if drivers select an upgraded set-up). The system is similar to that in the new 5 Series this year and can be had in conjunction with an optional head-up display, which projects speed and navigation instructions directly into the driver's field of vision.
American society no longer permits the business community to limit itself to production, sales and the accounting columns, Miller told The New York Times in July 1978.
"We were just lost -- out of our element. We were whipsawed," Miller recalled when the presidents of Detroit's three auto companies were summoned to testify before Congress after the publication of 'Unsafe at Any Speed,' Ralph Nader's 1965 groundbreaking book that exposed the American auto industry's lax safety practices.
Seat first confirmed it would be adding a large SUV to its range in March, but 2015's 20V20 concept car showed the company's ambitions for such a car.
