A jet flight with GM's ex-chief, Bob Lutz

At the barest mention of the word threat, Bob starts making the little Albatros dance, just for fun. He flicks the plane perfectly around its axis and we roll over Michigan.
"Um. Sure." I reply.
"Ok, we'll go for a four-point roll."
What happens from here on in is best described like this: GM proving ground. World upside down. Chrysler thing with roads on. Upside down. Some sky. Ground. Sky. Ground. Detroit. Sky.
"You Ok?" asks Bob. I mutter something to the affirmative, trying to make "yes" sound very much like "no".
