A limey question. I love (like a lot) Ry Cooder, in one of his songs on the album 'Bop 'til you drop' he mentions a deuce and a quarter, (a car?). Incidentally if you ever get the chance to see this generous genius, sell the farm but go.

Thanks sylvia, I googled it so now I see why it was such a big deal.
Ry Cooder = another hometown hero for Angelenos.
