Yup - outside of redneck country and rappers, the SUV is dead - it's been replaced by the crossover.

And I'd rather have a proper car that point. You can lift it all you want, it doesn't make it a truck!

Quick check on the Springs de-icing - and they use straight-up salt. Figures. ph34r.gif I would agree with billy's leeriness.

Did you quiz the owner on the condition of the undercarriage? I'm also a little leery of cars from states that get real snow.

He says there's no rust or corrosion anywhere, because I asked about salt damage. It's stored in his garage 6 months out of the year.


My wife pointed something out, the 308 GTS was also in Nat'l Lampoon's Vacation. I'd forgotten about that.

Politely: there's no way in hell. We're talking 512TR vs an Integra.

And let's be clear, it's OK to say that Taylor Swift looks a little like Christie Brinkley, but you can't say it the other way 'round... wink.gif

Taylor Swift is pretty, like an impressive thunderstorm. However, Christie Brinkley was a Class 5 hurricane.

Even now, Christie Brinkley still looks pretty good....although I don't know if it is due to Chuck Norris and the Total Gym or plastic surgery....lol

To try to get back to automobiles, they are running an Alf marathon on TV and there is one episode where Alf buys (and then crashes) a Ferrari - it's hard to tell, but one reference I saw said it was a 328 GTS.

Looks right to me. The 308 looks more bulbous, and the Mondial looks smaller. While looking up pictures of Ferrari, I was reminded of this creation:



Magick did say he wanted a fast people hauler...tongue.gif
