Alert the Toyota Museum!

Dear Tom and Ray:

I have a 1965 Mercedes 190DC which I have driven to work for over 20 years. I have recently done an engine transplant using a Toyota 22R engine with the Toyota five speed manual transmission. This had done away with the problems of difficult cold weather starting, excessive noise, etc. In addition, the car has very improved performance. My problem now is knowing what to answer when people ask what kind of car I drive. I am very confident that you can help with this problem.

RAY: You have an early prototype of the Lexus. Call Toyota; they may want it for their museum.
