Default Picking up my new "cage" next week

Scion tC Release Series 5.0

Yes, I know. It's pathetic. It's a 160-hp gutless chick car with $2300 extra dollars of rice on top. It's a joke. No self-respecting 43-year-old man should be caught dead in it. Hell, no self-respecting 23-year-old should. It's pretty much a Camry coupe.

I don't care. It's my first brand-new car ever that's totally mine and it's red & black and the rims are really pretty and it's the only time in my humble existence I'll own something with a plate on it that says "472 of 2000".

I heartily invite all manner of mockery. Bring it on.

No need for mockery. What could be said that's worse?

Looks like a cool pocket rocket, enjoy!

Oooh, THAT's gonna leave a mark............



Does it also come with a Tampon-dispenser in place of the Driver-side Airbag?

Eh, I'm a 28 year old male driving around in a Mitsubishi Eclipse. It's basically a prop car from Fast and Furious. Horribly embarrassing. Oh, and it's white. Every time I see the same model on the street, it's being driven by a female. At least when I'm finally ready to buy a new car I can easily unload this one on some unsuspecting 16 year old who thinks it's "cool."

--Nice 'stang Hawk. I spent some time on the 2010 website the other day drooling over the new model. If only I had the coin...

I've got a Plymouth Laser AWD (Eclipse sibling). Fun little pocket-rocket. Boost is almost an acceptable substitute for cubic inches.

And just to be 100% clear - that particular Bullitt isn't mine (I don't have any pics of mine on-line), but belongs to a fellow IMBOC Member. But, I REALLY like that lil' CDC Ducktail-wing he put on it, and will probably do the same to mine. Looks like it belongs on the car, don't it?

Oh man, now you are really asking for mockery. I'd mock you but I have a Subaru Legacy Brighton.

I dig the laser. Mine is an '03, which is when they made it big and piggish, no AWD, no turbo, just a sluggish V6 (I do shift for myself though). Whatever.

I do like the wing on that Bullitt. Minimal is good. My stupid car has a big(ish) stock spoiler and it serves no purpose other than to obstruct my view and prevent me from putting a bike rack on the back.
