Do you derive some sort of sick pleasure from this?
You seem to enjoy the thought of hundreds of people getting whiplash as you go by. I find this personally offensive. Whiplash can hurt, and you are causing real pain if you intentionally drive an attractive car past people who have to turn their heads quickly to get a glimpse.
I think it would be more appropriate for you to park the '97 Eldorado in some convenient public place and publish a schedule in the paper of where and when the car will be available for viewing. In between showings, you should transport the car in an enclosed car-haul trailer so that you don't cause traffic pile-ups, rear-end chain reactions and the like. And what if someone already has whiplash or is wearing a foam neck collar when the Eldorado passes by? Some people only think of themselves.
Presidential Candidate John Edwards is right: there are Two Americas. One is the high-stying, profiling, selfish luxury-car-driving show-off Americans (like YOU), and the other is decent, unselfish, ethical, God-fearing, hard-working, underpaid, uninsured, over-taxed normal people. Economic justice demands that you turn your car in at the local museum so nobody will have to deal with jealousy issues (or is it envy issues?). And no fudging on the valuation of the donation either. Just ask the IRS to tell you what value they would give it.
