    This thread reminds me........

    My wife's co-worker & good friend, RIP, was about 57 YO when she inherited her father's late model Mustang convertible. I'm not sure what level/package it was, but it was very nice. I'm now wondering, she was 57, so how old was her father was when he was driving it?

    I have a buddy who is early/mid 70s. I've known him for about 15 years or so. When I met him he had a Camaro SS (1998 IIRC). He added twin turbos and a whole bunch of other goodies. Took a 300ish HP car to over 650 HP. A couple of years later he sold that for a new C5 Corvette. Once the warranty was gone, or mostly gone, he souped that thing up to around 700 HP as well. Then he sold that and now has a C6 Corvette convertible. Whole bunch of extra goodies to soup that one up as well. Now that the C7 Corvettes have been out a couple of years I'm guessing he'll upgrade into one of those before too long. I told his son that his dad is dead set (no pun intended :p ) on timing his final Corvette purchase with the last dollars left of his inheritance, and more power to him for it. :D

    Something tells me that your friend had motor oil in his veins long before you met him ;). Hey, as long as a person has the reflexes to enjoy a performance car, and the money to pay the tickets and the higher insurance premiums, why not?



    With modern engine & transmission technology, the highway MPG for some V8 engines with automatic transmissions comes very close to matching that of our four cylinder Rav4. That includes Corvettes and full size pick-ups with quad cabs.

    I think he babies it most of the time.

    Most of the time. :p

    He claims he gets about 29-30mpg on road trips. That's not too shabby. And believe it or not, Corvettes tend to have lower insurance than many muscle/pony cars (like V8 Camaros or Mustangs) because the demographic that drives them tends to be more mature. Back when I had my 2000 Trans Am and priced out going into an early 2000s Corvette, my insurance would've stayed the same even though the value of the car would've went up by 60-80%.

    The ship may have sailed but we love our Elantra GT. Gets solid mileage, has just enough power that I can easily average 80 on the interstate and still have the headroom to pass people if necessary, handles great in tight quarters, and the hatchback makes working out of the "trunk" surprisingly comfortable. Fold the rear seats flat and it's even got enough cargo space for me to fit my mountain bike (with the front wheel popped off).

    And if it's anything like our previous non-hatchback Elantra it's tougher than a brick shithouse. That thing ate a pickup going 50mph slamming into me while I was stopped at a redlight and I walked away with nothing but aches and pains.

    Zombiesquirrel and Borla decided that ZS is indeed a MILF, they just don't agree on what the acronym means.

    There is no accounting for taste in cars, we're all over the place.

    ZS is keeping the vehicle that she has, for now.

  9. Yeah. The repair I needed didn't end up being as devastating as we were told it could be. I'm sticking with the my somewhat unfriendly for child car. It's a two door, but it's cute and sporty. DaddySquirrel can't drive shift and I don't have the patience to teach him.... We haven't switched cars like we were intending to do.

    Both of my daughters were pissed that I made them learn stick (and parallel parking) before I signed off on their driver's license. Both drive stick by choice, now.

    Don't even consider that, the closest that I ever got to divorce was teaching my wife to drive stick. Pay someone else to do it.

  13. I intend to teach my daughter how to drive stick. I appreciate and know my car better because of the experience.

    HAHAHAHA. Yeah, I can't do it. I tried once and we stalled 4 times just trying to get out of the driveway.
