Terry Nuckels has called replica speedsters "paper dolls for middle-aged men" (or some such thing). He's right.
And when you drill down to the bottom of all the personal decisions we make deciding how to make our cars "just so", what each of us decide to use for a steering wheel is probably the most intensely personal decision any of us make specing our cars.
I don't care for any of Lane's choices, or really any of the suggestions any of us have made for him. But what I like doesn't matter even a tiny little bit. This is Lane's car, and what Lane chooses to stare at every time he's inside his car is Lane's decision. I'd no more suppose to know what's best for Lane than I would suppose to know who he should marry or what food he should like to eat.
Some choices can't be made by committee.
