No, No, No, No! Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn! Not another stupid automobile!
I hate cars, let's be clear right off the bat. Hate them to their lousy built to a price, spec driven, consumer durable to the least common denominator core. Now that that is cleared up I bought a car today. This is turning into a weekly event. Between my collector car partner and I we have 46 cars. That is sheer stupidity, so don't start with me.
M'kay, I was minding my own business leaving a really nice car show in Dallas yesterday and bam! I pass a Chrysler dealer going under that had an old Cadillac STS out front. The front air dam was perfect with perfect fog lights. In Cadillac lingo you never see that on the '92 to '97 vintage. So I pull in and look. All option, blk on blk with all original paint shining like most 6 mo old cars. The original dealer tag shows it was bought and serviced at Sewell, which as you know is the best Caddy dealer in the USA (literally). Well the stupid fucker is perfect, so I am cussing and spitting while walking around it. Can't find any real flaws. Fuck.
Go to the warehouse and talk with Matt. He says we must go look at it after the Mormon horse riding get together. So after said Mormon and city council fun, we head over to the dying Chrysler dealer in the red Bentley Turbo R and the '85 Eldorado Biarritz with all options. (All options in Cadillac speak means the car is worth 10 times more than the average good ol' Caddy. Sad but true.) Well after a little road rage where Matt and I block the street and got out to confront a Buick that was being antagonistic, and then the requisite cops showing up not understanding the Manitoba plates, we make it to the dealer. Well Matt says the car is incredible and we need no more daily driver/loaners as we now have four + our actual drivers. So true.
Today he calls me whilst I am driving to Santa Fe and says he is going to buy that fucking STS if I don't. We simply can't let a brain dead, non caring, tote the note to ruin dude fuck over in 6 mos. a car that was and is that nice. So I offer a measly $4k. They assholes take it. Bought another car. '95 STS with 39k miles and genuinely mint. Damn it. Will you people please stop letting your nice old cars go for nothing please! Damn it!
