Cars
« on: January 21, 2014, 03:20:59 PM »
not really military but important enough as daily life equipment.
so lets start off with a pretty controversial car today, the 2014 Corvette.  I havnt been a fan of the Vette since the body style change in the early 80s.  I think all of the permutations since then have been pretty blah as well.  but the new one....  hmmm
Im still up in the air over it and Ive gotten to see a fair amount on the road over the last few months.  on the way home today there was one in dark British racing green with black wheels that looked incredible.

the basic profile has lots of Europe in it which I think is more gooder:


this is pretty much what I saw today:


Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Are all those cops in the back there to keep the 'Vette from getting picked on by the real European iron?

I like those new Corvettes, too. So does my wife; I'm hoping she doesn't get any ideas.

Meanwhile, if I had a spare $278,295 lying around, I'd go for one of these:



The convertible would be acceptable too.

keep in mind that it costs a fraction of what a European supercar costs though and delivers most of the performance.  with a little post purchase tuning it can be pretty competitive.

My boss's boss talks a lot about his Lotus. I want to say it's a Europa, a yellow one.

I understand. I'm 6'4". I just fit into my Camaro. I can't fit in Mustangs, though.

Certainly would.

A few jobs back there was a really nice guy that worked in the same building I did, that owned an Aston. A friend of mine that was down in the lobby called me up and told me to get my ass down there quick. It was on the curb. He parked it there for the service guys to come pick it up and change the oil. He let me sit in the front seat, the owner. Made my day. I was afraid to touch anything, though. The leather seat alone that my big butt occupied probably costs more than the car I have now.

I told my boss about my fetish for Astons, and he told me I should go over to the dealership (there's only one in Houston) and get a test drive. I'd have to have titanic balls to do that. I'm thinking about it.

do it!  consider...  its not like they sell tons of them, they have test drive mules and theres some bored ass salesman looking to go for a drive.  all they can say is no.  but if they say yes dont crash it.  ::)  I almost did that with a Lotus Esprit once and I might have made the sales guy shit his pants.

Well hell, if the speedometer says '140', you're test driving it dammit. You need to know for sure!

I love the Esprit, too, ever since Roger Moore used it in The Spy Who Loved Me.

I see these driving around a lot.  Im happy to say that the owners seem happy to step on it.  Lambo drivers dont seem to do that much.
