I personally wouldn't have a problem with having one...I'm really a pretty good driver. But I don't have one...which is also fine by me.

The trofeo is a car that was too early for it'* time, and that'* why you don't see them or parts for them.

Hell the HUD in the 92 bonneville was like wow.

This black box has ben hitting allot of boards now, since they have been using them in court. Im not sure on the accuracy of the site posted, as they were put into I believe 91 and 92 F-bodys (firebirds and camaros). They were originally used by GM to monitor that the air bag and ABS system was working properly, then the courts started using them in vehicular manslaughter cases.

Don't see it as a big deal, but then again my car doesn't have one.

If you're up for a Vehicular Manslaughter charge, you got more to worry about than crash data saved on your car....

I knew the most cars now have them...it has been getting quite a bit more press. The way I see it, the facts are the facts...and if this recorder wont contain the information, the investigators can usually figure it out!

The question here is if you are trying to hide something or not.
