Her name is Kate Walsh.  She's now in a spin off.  My wife and I are Grey's Anatomy fans.  Wikipedia is where I found what her real name is.

Old farts car? Not with a Northstar V8
 
And the chic is smokin, but just another face in the dime a dozen MIL* model market.
 
I like the commercial though.

There's a MIL* market?  How do I trade on that?  Do I need anything beside my series 7?

BG...my mechanic friend who rebuilt engines for 20+ years for Jasper engines tells me that the Northstar engine is bona-fide J-U-N-K.

There's one in every crowd! Your friend is entitled to his opinion, however the Northstar has gotten almost universal praise.
 
An interesting point here though, back in the early 80's Ford built a 5 litre V8 that got high marks for it's break through technology especially in the area of reduced oil changes. Unfortunately buyers of cars with this engine believed Ford and their owner's manuals which advised them that they could go 7500 miles between oil changes. About two years passed before the first problems showed up in the form of failed oil pumps. Then the engines started to fail enmass due to clogged return lines. Ford's answer, in which no doubt Jasper benefited, was to offer owners of these cars remanufactured engines. The owner of a car would get a remanufactured engine block from a car that had had the same problem but was a month or so ahead of them in line. The cost was about $3000 a pop and Ford did nothing to help pick up the cost. They told most of the hapless owners that the engines failed due to their own negligence. Of course this was nothing but a big frickin scam. Ford was totally liable.  And engine remanufacuters around the country had a great couple of years helping Ford rip off their customers. Still fighting them 20 years ago, before lemon laws, was almost impossible.
 
I should know, I was one of those customers. meticulous records showing that I had exceeded Ford's maintenance requirements for my wife's 1983 Mercury Colony Park got about $1000 dollars chopped off the price. Still, it was a rip off to have to pay anything for an engine that suffered catastrophic failure after it had been properly maintained.
 
Indy, you just never know when you're going to pick a scab.

  Granted, but that praise has generally come from the journalist community.  They drive a car for a few days or a couple of weeks and then give it back.  They don't have to maintain it.I seem to recall that Road and Track LOVED the car as their long-term tester because it was a blast to drive...(I'm thinking of the CTS-V), but they also had some pretty high maintenance costs.

I think the old saying that goes "if you gotta ask how much it cost to run..." applies
 

I'm not trying to pick a fight with Indy or anyone else. I have no idea how the Northstar is to live with on an LT basis. My original post spoke to the performance aspect of the engine. Definately not an old farts kinda power plant.

I had an El Dorado with the North Star and loved it!! I go German now though. They drive better and at faster speeds with less Horses and the leather doesn't fall apart after a few years.

Definately not an old farts kinda power plant.Agreed.But unless you want to buy two copies(like the old joke about Jaguars), there maybe be better choices.Don't get me wrong....I'd love to try one out....

Kate poses the question: When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?
Last weekend I had to go to Florida for a few days. When I got to the Hertz counter at Southwest Regional Airport in Ft Myers I asked the rental agent if they had any Mustang Convertibles available? He was sorry to say that he didn't. "However", he said "We do have a Shelby GT-H convertible ready to go. Would you like that?"  I told him "That will do just fine." And it did. Car was a blast to drive. Roof went down at the airport parking garage and stayed that way for three days. Sunshine and 80 degrees all three days, smokin hot fast car, yeah I did a lot more driving than intended.
 
Rent a racer on your next trip to someplace warm. Highly recommended!

Kate is pretty average IMO. I like both girls & guys but Kate...no thanks.

women I find highly attractive

1) Vanessa Williams
2) Holly ...Hugh Hefner's main chick
3) Hoopz...some ghetto a$$ chick but pretty as hell. Tight body! GOOGLE HER UP & get ur lotion & Kleenex ready!
4) Angelina Jolie...those lips!! I meant the ones on her mouth!
Hunter Tylo...everytime I look at those eyes I get I lose my mind & some of my body fluids.

My favorite FANTASY men(not in order). My women were not in any particular order either
1) The Rock
2) WILL DEMPSE bodily fluids ( I lose some bodily fluids on this one as well)

Will post once I think of more.

Oh I realized I forgot to justify why Vanessa Williams is hot. For those who are not "familiar" with her..,she was the first Miss Black America but had her crown taken away after a nude scandal with Penthouse.

I love her blue eyes on her dark skin. I dont like the fact that she has so many children I think she should find another hobby instead of making "baby making her #1 form of recreation.
