Um, the Eclipse would have been my first choice if I had the coin and they had a red or black one on the lot. I mean, c'mon, the new ones look pretty hot...

I like Miatas, er, I mean, MX-5s, too.

Am I car-gay?

Jeeze man, did you get one of those Victoria Secret teddy bears with the bra and panties inside to?.....


If I had my druthers I'd have an Escalade or Land Rover, however my Explorer is cheap and reliable and gets me through the snow and rain, hauls all our junk on camping trips and generally serves it's purpose as a work horse. When it does become troublesome I'll think about trading up, till then it fits the bill. My oldest daughter had a Scion TC for awhile, nice little car perfect for her but a little cramped for my portly physique..

Cars do nothin for me anyway. I drove junks for most of my life. Doing that saved me lots of money to buy nice fast motorcycles. F*ck cars.

I need a vehicle that I can sleep in and tow two bikes. I'm old enough that sleeping in the truck cab just doesn't work anymore.

It's got to be cheap, and get reasonable mileage, too.

After a lot of looking around I have decided that I need......








a minivan.

Actually that's a pretty nice car, Schizuki. At least it isn't beige. That Numbered Edition badge will earn your retirement money at Barrett Jackson in a few decades, so keep it waxed.

This is what I used to hand out communist manifestos and worker organizating leaflets. And take the kid to school and buy groceries and crap like that. I just wish men in Miatas wouldn't stare at me so much when I drive it.

Oh, crap, I forgot about the Mini. I like that, too. At least, the Cooper S. If I'm not mistaken, it goes "Mini Cooper = chick car, Mini Cooper S = cool." So I'll give myself a half-gay for that.

Actually, Ken, I bet that you and I share generally the same taste in cars - small, fuel-efficient and preferably sporty. Although you probably approach it from the "I must be gentle to Gaia and not enrich the evil Big Oil corporations" angle whereas I'm going for "I'm cheap and I don't want to give one unnecessary penny to anti-American sh*tholes full of repulsive people, like Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Canada."

I'm sure it's the big mustache, tight white shorts and tank top that does it Ken, not the car.......

I just decided to lease a car that's as fast as a motorcycle.

Buz, the thumbnail opens just as tiny.

Is that an AMG, maybe a S65?

With a plate that reads, 'CO2MY S'?

There's nothing great about being able to keep up with a Ninja250.
