I know it would be nothing but trouble - high insurance and high maintenance costs - not to mention the cost to store it for 5 months out of the year (the drive already has my old truck in it and the garage has two cars) and blah blah blah - but God Damn wouldn't that be a blast to roll around in during the Summer Months!
The Z would come with a new car warranty and be basically free for the first few years beyond oil changes. I love the man-child looks of the car and by all accounts it's a blast to drive. But the interior (C'Mon Nissan - why not give it the boy racer interior it deserves!) looks like ass. Still - this would be another great Summer car option.
Pure sex. Silky smooth and a true roadster! Not as manly as the Z or the Porsche but likely more fun given the go cart factor and the whole drop top thing.
Gah - I could work it out with the little missues as it's my paycheck paying the bills but it's hard to go that final bit and pull the trigger.
In other news - what the hell was VW thinking? They get a lame arsed gain of 20 or 30 HP or something like that - like anyone can tell the difference between 150 or 170 HP by the seat of your pants anyways. Just crazy.
Initially I was all batshit happy about it - thinking it was another stock buying opp (like BP after the oil spill) but I'm afraid to touch it at this point as I don't know that they will survive when all is said and done. Best case they get gobbled up by someone.
In other news - I bought some Collinite 845 for the truck as it will likely sit outside all Winter. I was going to store it but you're looking at $150 per month to do that and that's a lot of dough to park a truck for 5 months. So I'm jazzed about trying the 845 - it's really old Skool and practically legendary in the car detailing circles.
In other news - the new Toyota/Lexus grill looks soooo heinous - I can't imagine anyone would look at that and think "WOW - what a great looking car" but people are still lining up to buy them. Crazy. I used to think Lexus was one of the best designed cars on the planet but now they're all swoopy and have the big shit eating grill and whatnot. No thanks.
So that's it - don't forget to change your oil and rotate your tires and get out there and put some wax/sealant on the your ride before the Winter months hit! I'll report back on how the Collinite 845 works out. And don't drive like my brother!
