...what do you do if you can handle the payments but don’t have a good credit score?
I sell Fords. I’ve only sold 2 diesel F-150s, both to customers who have diesel infrastructure.
Just get the 6.2L, pocket the difference, and buy a diamond-studded melon baller to scoop out your eyeballs so you don’t have to look at that abomination.
Hate to break it to that guy but the kid doesn’t look anything like him.
When I was but a wee lass growing up in and around Omaha, Nebraska, I got to see the original Bigfoot a few times. There would be truck and tractor pull events inside the Omaha Civic Auditorium. In between the truck rounds and tractor rounds, they would bring out 3 or 4 junk cars and Bigfoot would crawl over them in…
I used to have Bigfoot posters all over my room when I was a kid (they’re still in my attic) and I remember watching that episode of Engine Power a few months ago when it first debuted. Very happy they are polishing up the old brute and breathing some new life into it. Monster trucks aren’t for everyone, but if you…

This was so close:
Personally I think Erin nailed it with the XC40, but I really don’t get why getting any crossover is unconventional. I’d personally go retro (yogis really need to be driving a microbus, IMO), but then it’s hard to get all those modern conveniences that she wants. What’s retro and modern at the same time? Cooper Mini.…
First of all, this is not my client. This column is for readers to submit their situations to a WCSYB form and we pick topics (see link at the end of the article). There is a question on the form that says “Tell us about your situation” it is purely open-ended. We just copy paste that text into the quoted post. She…
As soon as someone states they’re looking for ways to “not be basic” it’s guaranteed they already are and all following solutions will continue their basicness by default.
what does that have to do with anything? Applaud the fact that some people set and live within a budget. You gave a silly take.
“Help, I’ve become Basic”
“I Don’t Want to be Basic”
“my car will essentially be a statement of who I am. And it needs to say: yes I can fit in here but no, I’m not a carbon copy and I don’t need your approval.”
