“Man driving oversized truck can’t get it up” FIFY

Ah, the message board troll. First, the engine in this car is bulletproof. Forged crank, cast iron block, vastly understressed as it comes from the factory. Ditto the tranny. There is also very little to break. It’s a simple car, not a cell phone on wheels. Millions of these have been sold, and it's a proven design

I think you summed up the Italian sports car sense perfectly. See, I’ve eaten at Chikn shacks, gas station smokers with rusty signs saying stuff like Jr’s BBQ, and tiny little grease pits with ancient checkerboard floors all over the South.

The pre-owned Fiat 500 Abarth: It’s like a roadside fried chicken place in Macon, Georgia. The sign says “chiken” crudely painted on a wood plank.

Probably because watching amateurs do something you can participate in is more fun than watching a pro with factory backing do it a bit better. Same reason why college football is more interesting than the NFL - it’s unpredictable and the folks who went there feel like they were part of it.

Something like that happened the last time I loaned out a van I owned. It never ran well afterwards, and I couldn’t place the reason. I just don’t trust other people to drive well - if they want to ruin their own vehicle, fine. Otherwise that’s what rentals are for.

I totally let my friends drive my cars. Sometimes, I even let them borrow my cars for extended periods of time. (If I’m going to be on the road for 1-2 weeks, why not let one of your friends drive it?) Like, my buddy K***** - one of the coolest dudes I know. He’s responsible, has a great sense of humor, and everyone

I probably shouldn’t admit this - but until now I thought that these were OEM on some trim levels of the Jeep. I don’t think I’ve seen but a handful of new ones without them; I had zero idea these were aftermarket.

I was just curious so I looked at what a top-of-the-line Jeep wrangler runs now and it was quite a bit more than I paid new for a well-featured 4x4 Chevy Suburban. What?

at some point maybe corporate America will realize selling $35-55k cars is difficult if there is no middle class

They are the same said people who would rather junk that creampuff than sell it for a reasonable price, knowing that repairs need to be accounted for. I love roaming the yards, and shake my head at some of the creampuffs out there.

Because people selling privately generally are trying to get as much as they can, while some folks selling to dealers are doing so out of convenience....but they are usually not the same person.

Possibly the “uniform.” People tend to accept things that we assume people in authority to know better than the average person.

Last time I went to the doctor, he came in and said “Hi, everybody!” (it was just me) and then said that 1978 model year kidneys were really hot right now, and that he had at least three buyers lined up to pay top dollar.

I had a car once that mechanics BEGGED me to stop driving. They would offer as much as $100 to tow it to the junkyard instead of me driving off in it.  I don’t think this is the same thing.

Well done, Sir. Thank You for calling Chevy/GM out on using subpar bits on its top tier car. So that same $140K, I think I’d just buy the best valued Porsche 911 or an Audi R8 for my track car.

Tap on my profile. You’ll see all the stories under my byline. I’m fortunate to get to review a lot of fun cars for this site.
