So much VAG (Volkswagen Automotive Group, get your minds out of the gutter). Good thing you can work on them all ...

Clearly I’m behind on the MM updates - when did you get this thing, and how many miles at aquisition?

you go to war with the Democrat you have, not the Democrat you want. I want Team Kamala from the jump, but I wept when he chose her, and I will crawl over (insert usual disgusting items) to vote for them.

there are more than a few running rich people around Manhattan ... they annoy me. Get a 6oohL, a Flying Spur, or a Continental ... all cars I’d rather be driven in ...

The BMW is a crime against nature. The “Scion” is an interesting choice given that it is a dead brand. Turning a Camaro into a Pontiac Firebird? Our hearts leap ... but a Toyota into a Scion? Yeah yeah, sure sure, if you have money for the badges.

The DOJ was a short(ish) walk from my law school, and I knew where the guy sat because I worked on that floor the previous summer. Other people editing the journal talked me down.

That’s true - I’ve driven a first gen and a third gen, and I can’t imagine either car without 3 pedals.

Perhaps not - have Hellcat prices (for the first ones) declined a lot? Fiat-Chrysler seems (at least to me) to be a ship of doom ... it will not end well. But then again, I haven’t rented (the only driving I do) one of the products since ... maybe 2011? Base Charger. Not bad, not entirely good. Eh, I have no idea ...
