I’m strangely drawn to these things and look at that depreciation!
That’s the current new car inventory of my local Audi dealer (where I dropped my car off for service this morning). I really like my new A4 loaner, but even if I wanted to trade-in, choices are slim if you don’t want an SUV.
This was going to be a DD/track/burn, but there are 4 contenders in he approx. $60k category:
Hertz gave me one of these. My initial impression is, I could definitely own one for the right price. Not a V8 or anything, doesn’t handle as well as my A4, but plenty of power and comfort. And I like the styling.
Oppos, talk to me about Porsche 987s. I’ve noticed that they are 100% in 3rd car territory I can afford. A lot near me has one (and 3 BMW E36/7s) I’m thinking about visiting.
It’s just the kids’ college fund.
I was walking the dog today and heard coming up behind me a distinctive whine. I said to the dog: “that’s a Ford power steering pump”, and of course I was right. It was at 12 year old Ford Escape. Possibly I just know that noise because my mother drove one of these during my formative years:
The center F-1 on the S-1C of SA-500D at the US Space and Rocket Center. Not the first time I’ve seen it. Not the first time I’ve photographed it. Not the first time I’ve been awed by it.
It could be that Lambo you had on your bedroom wall as a kid. Or the Jaguar E-type you never knew about until that flashback article in Car and Driver. Or maybe it’s a bug eye WRX STI, because obviously.
Summer weather and lukewarm significant other interest has me perusing convertible 2 seaters. But which one? The catch: must comfortably seat 6'4" driver (sorry Miata).
Just watched the Wheeler Dealers Lamborghini Urraco episode. Now I must have one.
2012 A8 4.2 with 38k miles. Asking $37k.
190k miles, $6,999. Interior looks ok in pics. Service records only for the last 90k miles.
I need a TT V6 Mustang. Call it a Lincoln if you have to. Just take my money. I’ll give you $40k.
