Flawed. No I don't wear one, but not for any of the reasons you state. I just won't spend money on something I don't need. Since I've skied for many decades without one, I obviously don't need it. I NEED lift tickets.
The Ghostmobile needs a new cross-over pipe and a new alternator . Darn thing's only 17 years old (yes still original parts there). Why can't GM build things to last?
