So do ours!
Let me offer the perspective of someone who went there two years ago, about a week after the first article was published, in the effort to buy his grey 16v scirocco:
I called him wednesday that week to ask if he still had it. he said he did. we negotiated a price of $800 and i told him I would be there between 1-2pm on… Read more
Wasn’t being a meth addict a requirement to work for American auto makers during that era?
This movie feels like a weird time displaced artifact of 1995, complete with a manic Jim Carrey, the completely out of place use of Gangsta’s Paradise, and the “THE VIDEO GAME GETS REAL” vibe of the whole thing.
It’s like from an alternate reality where the Super Mario Bros. movie was a mega hit and Sega, desperate to… Read more
