 A hip young man goes out and buys the best car available: a 1999
Ferrari. It is also the most expensive car in the world, and it costs
him $500,000. He takes it out for a spin and stopsfor a red light.
 An old man on a moped (both looking about 75 years old) pulls up
next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek, shiny car and asks,
"What kind of car Ya' got there, sonny?"
 The young man replies, "A 1999 Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million
 "That's a lot of money," says the old man."Why does it cost so much?"
 "Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!" states the young
dude proudly.
 The moped driver asks, "Mind if I take a look inside?"
 "No problem," replies the owner. So the old man pokes his head in the
window and looks around. Then sitting back on his moped, the old man
says, "That's a pretty nice car, all right!"
Just then the light changes so the young guy decides to show the old
man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds the
speedometer reads 160 mph. Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view
mirror. It seems to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could
be and suddenly, whhhoooossshhh! Something whips by him, going much faster!
"What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?" the young man
asks himself.

Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward him. Whoooooosh! It goes by 
again, heading the opposite direction! & it looked like the old man on the 
moped!  "Couldn't be," thinks the young guy. "How could a moped outrun a
Ferrari?"  But again, he sees a dot in his rear view mirror! Whooooosh, 

It plows into the back of his car, demolishing the rear end. The young man
jumps out, and it IS the old man!!!
He runs up to the mangled old man and says, "Oh my God! Is there anything I 
can do for you?"  The old man whispers with his dying breath, " 
suspenders from your side-view mirror..."
