    "Pink it and shrink it" is still the order of the day. Like mobile phones about 15 years ago. But looking around, these days I see women wearing bigger watches than men!

    The driver clearly didn't.

    Traction control would have controlled the car to a degree, allowing the driver - who clearly had no skill - to use the full performance envelope of the Monaro, which is...

    Well, Omega already tried that and it does no harm (ref. the threads about the cockenballs at the 12 of every Speedmaster). Must be because of who makes it, maybe ;).
