Well, they listed for about $3200.00 new....the hatch looks better than the standard car, and this one, with a vinyl roof, was the least attractive offering. Read more

“LIQUID MOLLY” instead of “LIQUI MOLY” in the ad has to be the absolutely crack-pipiest typo ever!

Eighties Asian, I’d go with a Nissan Maxima. CP for the Toyota.

An old-man-tan, over the hill Toy Camry for $3Large? Rob, did you mean to post this in Popular Wrinkle magazine, instead of NPorCP? I have to laugh when the owner of a junker like this has to try to convince people how valuable it is. 45 MPG?  What has this guy been smoking?  CP all the way to the old folks home, Read more

Can confirm. Can also confirm that it’s incredibly annoying... the car is very low, and when you’re dropping into the seat the e-brake handle whacks you in the back of the knee if you’re not used to it. Very odd design choice.

This is my next fun car, either a 924S or a 924 Turbo, I have always liked the sleek looks better than the “disco and gold chains” taint that goes with the heftier 924 (if you lived through the 80s you know what I mean). Read more

Who “pops” a Cialis in this car? You take two, and you chew them with your molars, grinding them down into a fine powder, before washing the grit off your teeth with the Scope you keep in the center armrest. Read more

“I don’t even know which marque you’d have Calvin pissing on in the inevitable brand bashing window decal.” Most thoughtful thing I will read all day-I love NPOCP.
