I saw a4 door Wrangler in bikini this morning while walking Ozzy. I liked it a lot.

We just walked by the 775k place. Turns out its not in Cascades, its in Lowes Island, which is the neighborhood right next to ours. Its twice the size of our house, on a lot thats certainly no bigger than ours, and maybe smaller. It looked nice, so I guess 775k is a good deal?

Gin & tonics used to be my drink of choice. Now I'm more of a whisky fan, but I still partake from time to time.

Lutz would appreciate the humor.

It’s definitely on my radar as a Cruze replacement.  It might need some Cruze badges, though, just for Lulz.

Get the SS. If you don’t, I might. When I get back from my work trip in a month. And get the Cruze and 850 sold. So by then it will probably be gone. Hopefully to you. Basically you need to buy this to prevent me from buying it is what I’m saying. Just do it.

Drivetrain stuff is easy, due to aforementioned Chebbiness. Its got an LS engine, Tremec trans, etc. It’s body and interior bits that would be tough to source. So basically, if blow the motor up doing burnouts, you’re fine. Fender bender? You might be screwed.

I just thought of another option that might be right up your alley in terms of cost and ability... a pickup truck! Why not get a GMT800 (so 99 - 07, I think) Silverado (or GMC Sierra) 1500 in 2wd with a regular cab (weight savings). The jury is out on short or long bed - the short box saves weight, longboi has extra Read more

I don’t think that’s quite true. Yugos get some love because they are weird and jalop, but I think an auto SS would be quite a hoot compared to a yugo.  Now any kind of legit sports car, even a slow one, like an NA Miata, then yeah, I’d take that over an auto SS.

That looks pretty nice. I don’t know how it is out there, but townhomes aren’t really any cheaper here than houses. My theory is there are a lot of people who want to live in NoVa who don’t like yardwork. Read more

Wow!!! We paid 490 for our place and similar houses in the neighborhood have recently been pushing 600. And here I thought we were doing good... Read more

I think what you have in mind sound likes an awesome plan. As KnowsAboutCars said, Caprices are B-bodys, while Regals & Montes are G-bodys. Either are good choices, though, because either will accept a small block, or with a set of adapter mounts, an LS engine. Read more

It’s got some charm, I’ll give it that, but I will never understand west coast real estate. Read more

I agree, it would be nice to stop the bots from snatching up all the goodies. I’d also love to see an embargo by online resale sites like eBay, etc., either no reselling or limit the number of live listings for something like that for the first 30-90 days, or something along those lines. Read more

So like a modern reincarnation of the LM002?

I’ve never driven one. My only frame of reference is my FWD, manual Cruze, which isn’t a slouch, but not exactly fast either. I could see the auto + AWD dragging it down, though.
