      Nice thing is it's easy to get the 2.3 turbo to 300 hp, and the light Fairmont weighs under 3000lbs in stock form, and it's easy to get one like in the OP down to 2500-2600 lbs. That makes it quick,...

      This is the key. Just like if you have to carry 2 adults and a couple children, dont' buy a Miata as a primary car. If you have to tow a large trailer regularly, don't buy a Golf. If you only drive...

      I owned a 2011 Cooper for 3 years with zero rattles in 36k miles. Our new one is now over a year old and it still has no rattles. What the hell do you people do to your cars that you beat them up so...

      Not really. When the facelift cladding came out I was pricing them, and though they were based on the AWD minivan chassis, they were $10k cheaper than said AWD Minivan. Looking at Azteks and Montanas...

      And yet, with today's crossover fad and coupe SUV/CUVs, and cars like the various Lexus around, if this were introduced today (pretend it had not been introduced before) it'd actually fit right in...

      I know you guys have expected this, but my PT was excellent at what it was designed to do (carry people and stuff in a compact package) and even stuff it wasn't designed to do (autocross...

      I like that plan. It'd be way more entertaining that what the money would normally be used for.

      I'd rather sacrifice HBO or Sirius money, and keep the beer, thank you. ;) I'm in.

      A little while after I got my Volt, I had a shopping cart at Home Depot slammed into the drivers door of it. Left three fairly deep angular dents with orange paint in them. PDR guy did it for $150...

      No, they really don't.



      We routinely did a lot of things that you can't do in modern times. NOT RELEVANT. Kids can't just ride artound willy nilly in cars anymore. You need car seats that take...

      I'm tempted to just get rid of the 740 badge entirely.

      Twist your wrist slightly clockwise while shifting up and counterclockwise while shifting down, puts slight sideways pressure on the gear lever that makes it go right in where you want it instead of...

      Look at how many old Tahoes there are running around. I wouldn't bet against the Chevy on this one.

      While that may be true, assuming that EVERYONE YOU SEE (or even most of them) in one of these is stretching their meager budget to do so is STUPID. :thumbdown:

      You don't know dick. Once you put a third row in a smaller vehicle, you lose all cargo room. And we can't put 3 people across the front of pretty much ANY modern car or have more people in the back...

      I don't think that they are jealous so much as assuming that since they can't easily afford it, no one can.

      :thumbup:

      On top of that, as was mentioned, of the car buying public, only 1/3rd are buying new, most of whom fall into the 53% that can easily afford them. And of those, maybe 10% are buying...

      He listed the problem areas, but not that you WILL have problems there. Compared to a VW of the same vintage, it IS a goddamn Corolla. I'd never own another VW/Audi of that vintage, but I'd have no...
