  • Re: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Takes Muscle Mania to New Level | Edmunds.com

    When somebody offers T-tops again I'll consider letting go of my 14 year old Z28 with T-tops.
  • Re: What car should I buy?

    Used, dunno, you'd have to decide for yourself about how old, how many miles etc. It depends so much on each individual used car. OTOH I searched around my zipcode for new cars costing no more than 15K and found lots of new 2015 & 2106 Focuses, Fiestas, Darts and Sonics as low as 14K. Some Fiestas in the high 12s along with Sentras and Versas. Under 12k a Fiesta, Sparks, and lots of Versas. Not saying these are fast 0-60 cars, but you might find some of them fast in the sense of handling well. Plus you may get a better insurance deal than with, say, a used 300hp Camaro. When I got my first car I thought about buying fast used, but went for fun new. Bought a new 1985 Honda CRX- I didn't beat anybody at the light, but had a great time eating up pricier cars on mountains roads. To me it's hard to beat a new car just for the newness and reliability. Plus you will always know who has taken care of it properly- you, not a stranger who drove it before you did.

    I started this folder long, long ago; now my married daughter owns my wife's 2003 Montana. It got a new transmission in 2014, and is still going strong.
