Ok, lets see.

I now that I need a utility car and I am told and have verified that
Squeak "car" with a lots of bells and whistles (that includes fog
lights, super duper changing colors, am/fm radio, video games included,
CD player for if you sometime need to entertain your passengers, etc)
but I am in the orange transportation business. I need a car that is
fast, doesn't distract the operator, doesn't have fog lights (I live in
the most warm sea level city) and have a lot of clients, so I need to
stack a lot of cars (that means that I need to buy only the bare
necessary and not am/fm radio and cd players) and use that bare car to
load the biggest number of oranges to give a service.

Sure when I have a lot of free time to use the cd player and am/fm radio
I will use the fancy car, but for my business, the one that put the food
in my family table, I need a car for work and not for play.

That is better? :)
