Well written piece man. I know that attachment. I sold the car I proposed to my wife in a few years ago and been kicking myself about it since. If you really love the car and it has that kind of sentimental value, forget the financially safe thing to do. People make dumber decisions with money all the time. Life’s too Read more

Maybe it’s from having a toddler myself but there’s no fucking way I’d leave a mother and child alone with that nut. If anything I’d probably try and maneuver my way closer without alarming the guy, just in case.

A piece of advice my fellow new dad. I’d get something with a back seat. I was in your shoes a few years ago, sorta. I wasn’t buying a track weapon, but something to drive around slow car fast on weekends and sometimes to work. I was kind of kicking myself for not buying myself a 2 seater while the wife was pregnant, Read more

See I’m with you. I have zero issue “overpaying” for a premium, well maintained example of the exact machine I want. I’ve even paid asking price, well over market value on vehicles that fit this description without batting an eye. After having some cheap shit boxes over the years, well sorted unicorns are always worth Read more

You're absolutely correct, but that's why I said average car buyers. Guys like you and me notice that stuff but I can say with confidence that most car buyers would (a) not even notice the difference, and (b) not give a shit when looking at the price tags. Your example is why I've always bought low mileage used luxury Read more

This is, a FANTASTIC take, and one I wholeheartedly agree with. 10 years ago you aspired to have a luxury car based on not only its good looks, but it’s features. We leased my wife a 2018 Sonata Limited and I can’t tell you how incredibly nice that midsize economy car is fully decked out. It drives nice, it feels solid Read more

Remarketing guy here. We’re making a killing right now. For a few months there MMR just kept creeping up, which is uncommon this time of year at least and definitely never at the rate we’re seeing. It’s evened out the past two or three weeks but my turn around times are still incredibly quick. If only we could get new Read more

Thank you. It’s like all these guys only peeked in the windows of these trucks and then got distracted by the lipstick on a pig interior of the RAM. Like, they all know none of that pretty tech is going to work by the time the warranty runs out! It’s FCA (sorry, STELLANTIS!!!) we’re talking about here.

It is pretty sad how GM mismanaged a pretty iconic brand the past few decades but some of it is just perception. They’ve had some duds, believe me I know. At the same time there’s also a lot of things they’ve done right, at least in my 35 years on this planet, that kept me endeared to them. I also kind of like Read more

I didn’t know that either. I was aware of Bush and heard he was ahead of his time but had no idea he basically invented two pretty “modern” systems like these. I wonder what made him abandon the oil governed system? Looks like I have some reading to do. Read more
