Going the other way. Good news, however: The Peanut Gallery hates that decision. In the recent past, that has been a good sign more often than not, but we'll see...

  1. What do you mean when you say "Stretch Taurus"?

    1. It's my term for when the front of the car is in the left column, and the back of it is in the same position in the right column, giving the visual impression of a really long car. Think "stretch limo." ("Taurus" is because the silhouette of the car in Money Game is based on a 1991 Ford Taurus.)
