hmm...kinda like a system some of the Fiero GTs had? Like the touch screen and such? only you know, modern and such, with like anything and everything at the tip of your fingers including
- Navigation
- Compass
- Rear View Camera
- Full Premium Sound System
- Total systems monitor (doors, lights, tire pressure, brake life, inside cabin temp and full climate controls, along with COMPLETE MAINTINANCE MONITOR, with performance settings)
- Engine monitors (RPMs, Spark advance, knock resistance, tps voltage, Air/Fuel Mix, Exaust temps, intake air temp, oil life, oil temp, coolant temp)
- Transmission Monitors & Controls (Trans Temp and trans fluid life monitor WITH MANUAL GEAR overide!)

OH and the best part? This system would be linked to the internet via Satellite or local WiFi. And settings, and all monitors could be observed and changed from your home computer. As well as the ability to start the vehicle, stop it and such.

I know GM is getting there because their cars 04 and up already have the capability to send you a weekly e-mail to let you know.

Now all they have to to is have an option called the Technology Package, with all the above included. I think its possible, I just think its all a matter of demand and how much money it would cost to develop it.

I know I would certainly demand it But I know they have to fill a certain quota. If only they could just make a test production car like that for a couple years....boy, that would be fantastic.

1)Monster dispenser as well as a cup holder that can hold the can while doing 95 on the off ramp.

2) some sort of holder to hold my sidekick

3) better placed engine mount instead of over the water pump

4) north/south placed engine as oposed to east/west making spark plug changes a PITA
