Why would I pay top dollar for a “museum quality” Miata, a car that was created to be driven? I’d drive the hell out of it, which obviates the need to have it in such good condition. Save $10K, get a decent driver, and have the fun you were intended to have.
I guess this is another of those Jeep things I don’t understand. Given enough time, anything becomes “ultra rare”, but nobody laments the destruction of, say, a 1980 Camaro the way David Tracy swoons over a workaday Jeep.
I love weird stuff so I’m predisposed to like this, and I do, but that price is just too high regardless of condition, even if it is market correct. No Dice.
I’m willing to step on this grenade: the Chevrolet Cavalier. Never the best or most refined, it was inexpensive and reliable and ran forever, and if you needed another one there were tons of cheap ones to choose from. The ultimate cockroach of the road, as it were.
Nobody made him turn off the traction control and act like a fool. The only good news is that the buyer didn’t get a car hooned to a fare-thee-well.
It’s a Jeep thing, and I don’t understand, but I’m sure some Jeep guy will snap this up in no time.
We bought my son a 2003 Civic, and then when my wife got a Kia Sorrento he inherited her 2012 Civic. I had no concern with either car, they’re cheap to operate and fix and they can get out of their own way. Perfect car for a new driver.
Aside from maybe some special editions these will never be collectible. ND.
If I were to go with a sports car shooting brake from that era, I’d take the Trans Am Type K. The C3 Corvette is far too swoopy/curvaceous to put what is essentially a box on the back. It just doesn’t work for me. But the kammback on the Trans Am works very well.
Not to defend Hitler, because that’s a fool’s errand, but the KdF/Strength through Joy program was a real thing pre-war, and if every country had simply acquiesced as they had every other time before when he invaded Poland there is little doubt that he would have delivered on those sales.
Spa isn’t above safety. In fact, its current configuration came about precisely because of safety. Jackie Stewart’s crusade for safety in F1 came about after finding himself upside down in fuel at the Masta Kink.
The only way it happens is if they invent a way to turn the motorcycle into a cannoli a la Demolition Man, and even then the physics of morons turning themselves into meat waffles while doing top speed runs will never change. Read more
My neighbor growing up had an amazingly clean blue Concours without the vinyl top that he kept in meticulous condition inside and out. If you offered me that car in that condition right now I wouldn’t pay that much for it. Read more
Yeah, but if you forget to pay the subscription or your credit card runs out of time without you noticing they disable the functionality. No bueno. Safety should never be at the mercy of rent.
Everything has a price. I’d rather look like the dorkiest imbecile that ever lived than go through this again. If that means I blow my jacket up unintentionally once or twice it’s a small price to pay. Trust me when I tell you that this HURTS. And the worst part is that after two weeks of rest I had to go back to… Read more
