The step up I'd like to make is to get in my time machine and order a '70 Barricuda with a Hemi. I gather that few were ordered. Apparently the capacity was there, all one needed was to pony up an...

I could see the appeal of a new BMW in the mid 5 figure range. My E30 was a step up for me in '02 and I'm comfy with it. I've driven several newer and faster cars and was not swept away. Two of...

Pretty sure I paid less than 5 figures for both my cars. My newest one set me back all of $1200 from the auto auction next to my shop. But then I put in a new timing belt and used rack and pump. ...

My sacrifice has been doing virtually all my own work and humping my behind around Pick n Pull many times looking for used parts. I like my E30s more than the newer Bimmers I've driven. Lucky for...

I don't think 'offended' is the right word.

Can't speak for the women involved but for me it's more of head shaking thing with a bit of weariness tossed in.

Judging by your list of current cars I would guess you sacrificed some time to earn the necessary funds.

Putting 'trophy on a T shirt is not a move I would have suggested. Sort of weird. Poor taste.

Objectifying women detracts from the man's ultimate happiness as well IMO.

Weird thing is that car sold for around $15K in the '60s. A 911 was around $6K. Of course, actually buying a Ferrari was not easy I gather. Limited supply. The doorman had to approve.

Hmmmm . . . maybe a Porsche Boxster or Cayman. Or a used 911 or Ferrari. The Viper worries me the same way a 427 Cobra would. Too much brute force for an unsophisticated chassis.

Please pardon the vague smartassery. I was a bit surprised no one had mentioned it. Good stuff.

Is that a thermal exhaust port on Pluto?
