Bill, you earned it
I'm sorry I missed the boat on this one.
What you've done for me was more subtle, and I don't think I've told you how much I appreciate it. Through the horrors of going from a V8 Bonneville to a V8 Chevy pickup to a 4-banger Neon, you've been there to get me to laugh at the oh-so-dismal prospect of being stuck in an underpowered car roughly the size of a lima bean.
You even managed to throw in some helpful advice while laughing!
So again, congrats, and you earned it!
