^These are now collector cars, not drivers, who gives a shit? If you need the ultimate proof talk to a ferrari collector. If you want a driver buy a fucking Camry.
I buy cars to drive not collect. I could not look at that particular 82 Toronado without throwing up.
To each their own, I guess.
WGAS about "collector" cars? What can you do with them? Just look at them? That is MY feeling about those. I love looking at them, though, at car shows or private collections. Of course I do.
But then, I enjoy looking at ART CARS too. Heard of the DMV at "Burning Man"? (DMV = Department of Mutant Vehicles"!!!)
And yes, a couple of weeks ago I just bought myself a Snow country driver.
First brand new car I EVER bought for myself. New '08 Outback. (for snow)
(see just below my avatar)
I hated to have to buy Japanese, (Fuji Heavy Industires) but the car was assembled in Indiana, 65% US parts. Engine and tranny from Japan.
It seems to be very well made. And nothing else in its class like it. So I got one.
Just Ford GM and Chrysler seem to be peddling unreliable, disposable crap, made by floridly overpaid US Union workers, to unsuspecting consumers in America. (Cars like that would be laughed off the road in Europe, where they do NOT suffer that kind of thing gladl)y.
Very UNLIKE that of the three best quality American assembled car lines, viz, Toyota, Honda and Subaru.
