Or pimp out a 4Runner so you can offer the Jeep guys a tow when their rides break down at the mall.Get a pimped Jeep but do all the work yourself. you can crawl over those german cars at the mall.
That's the car my mother drove (when I hadn't "borrowed" it) in my high school years. Very light and fast! I caved in the two left side wheels when I slid out and hit a curb my junior year. Pops wasn't at all amused.
When I was 14, my friends and I used to drool over that car in SuperChevy magazine. Low and behold one day, here comes the kid across the street rumbling into his driveway in one! Black with white stripes, 365 horse LT-1, Muncie 4 spd, 4.11 gears......man we all about fainted! lol What a cool car!That's the car my mother drove (when I hadn't "borrowed" it) in my high school years.

Let's see. . . divorced (check!). . . . silver chain (check!). . . but no pot belly, so maybe there's hope. Agreed that the 'vette is the poster-car for mid-life crisis.Corvettes just scream "mid-life crisis". When I think of a new Corvette I think of some guy who just got divorced and wearing a gold chain over his pot belly.
Sharp! Might be added to the list. . .
Not many Tesla's in Detroit, so it would be unique. We do have an epidemic of pick-up trucks however. I think they're giving away Ram 1500's with purchase of a happy meal. And they're typically super polite drivers. . .I don't know about Detroit, but in the SF Bay area it was amusing to listen to the BMW and Mercedes drivers complain about the entitled douchey Tesla drivers. #classwars
Sounds like neither are closer to one than each other - ah well, glad to be in the same boat!Nice - that one's a bit north of my budget, but maybe a trade up eventually.
I’m kinda disappointed by “German quality” tbh. My 535 has seen 3 different recalls already and the driver’s door handle can no longer reliably open the door (electronic lock works fine) and the dealer says it’s $800 to fix. A fucking headlight is $2k. Plus it depreciated so rapidly that my wife’s Subaru Outback is now more expensive per KBB. It’s fun to drive, though, there’s no denying that, but in this price segment there are plenty of domestic cars that are fun to drive. If I were experiencing a midlife crisis, I’d get me one of those 700hp+ domestics that have started appearing in the last few years. I practically know they’ll be illegal in 10-15 years, so it’s be good to experience the greatness before it’s gone. Liberty, guns, fast cars, rock and roll, good ol’ US of A, medium rare steaks, 30 - 40 years from now people will be looking at our time as the golden age for something or other I’m sure, much like today we look wistfully at the wild 60’s that we weren’t able to experience ourselves and can only see and hear in recordings.
Good to know.I actually work for a BMW Dealer and this is spot on, I have seen so many issues with these cars its not even funny and not even the older ones im talking brand new cars that have issues before they even leave the lot. I remember when I got the job thinking wow here's this prestigious German car and in a week that image was shattered lol. But I get a nice commission check every month from selling the parts so that's a good thing.
