    Yes, maybe 10 minutes with traffic...I pass his place whenever I go into work...which was canceled today. he did say there might be something late this afternoon but I'm not getting my hopes up. Summer has hit the Florida rental business! The others assured me that once school lets out, things pick up a bit which is great cause I really want to work now. Feast or famine!

    I was reading about the $90K Tesla winning CR car of the year. It has a range of 200 miles :sick:

    CR says it drives like a sports car. Oh well. Then I saw this ad on that page;

    That sounds like a pretty good price to pay for a Challenger. Not sure what that last sentence means though.

    Also, those wheels look a little funny, wonder if you have to pay extra for tires and discs.

    I think that buying a ponycar without a big 'murrican Vee-Eight is tantamount to a crime against nature...

    I heard marijuana is an excellent pain killer. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has gone green and now you can legally buy marijuana for medical and recreational use.

    Smoking anything is not going to happen in my case. It took me a long time to give up cigarettes (10 years now smoke-free) and I don't want to inhale any type of smoke, no matter what the end benefit might be. I'll stick with the morphine tablets and a TNT pill every couple of days (to relieve the constipation) from the pain killers. I just hope I don't have to take them for very long.

    I start therapy 2 days after surgery (already scheduled) - going to be interesting.

    I believe it means that they can't honor that price if you want to lease because the factory is only providing the $3500 incentive on a sale.

    Yes, that would make sense. And, obviously, it only works if you buy the car outright as if you leased it at that price you would only be paying off a portion of the car and they would lose big time.

    Seems awkward inthe way they say it but they do have space limitations I suppose.

    You have a good point there, but, on the other hand, that is a pretty nice car for $21K....if you can meet all the requirements.

    Which should also include being a hair dresser or a coed spending Daddy's money....

    I agree - the V8 is the allure of the pony car. The sound of a V8 is worth the price of admission alone. As zipdriver :P found out when he traded in his V6 for a proper V8 Mustang 3 months later.

    I do deal with a sales rep who is a car guy. His DD is a 2012 V6 Challenger. Before that, he had a 2010 V6 Challenger. When he went to trade in his 2010 for the 2012, he had his heart set on a V8. He crunched the numbers and just didn't think the extra gas & insurance would be worth it.

    ....and if you buy the car on a Monday or a Thursday and it has to be an odd day on the calendar, and only between the hours of 3 to 4 PM.

    "Do you love the excitement of hydroplaning? Think drivers who enjoy having their vehicle grip the road as they make hairpin turns are 'control freaks'? Think the confidence of keeping the car on the road instead of a ditch is highly overrated? Come see us for the experience of a lifetime - one test drive and you'll be hooked!"

    Maybe they are for people who "don't like the feel of the road".

    Guy places an ad in Kijiji (just like Craig's List in Canada) and Auto Trader.
    2 Guys come to look at the truck at 9 pm on Monday evening.
    They go for a test drive, he tells his wife he will be back in a few minutes.
    He has been missing ever since.
    His wife makes a heartbreaking appeal to return her husband.
