I hope you lease or what an incredible waste of money.
Well, buying anything with wheels is never a win win financially..but yes, I do lease and it was fun being single with a very nice salary.
You've got some nice taste, I approve.
So I traded in the Honda for this bad boy last night!
2008 Prius Package 6. I was planning on getting the dark grey, but as soon as I saw this color I had to have it. So far I'm averaging just under 44mpg, which should go up once I get past 100 miles and have the ability to use cruise control.
I can't find a single thing wrong with this car so far!
It's been ages since I've looked at this thread. Boy, there are some very pretty cars in here.
I'd never thought I'd say classy and 80's mustang in the same sentence, but Offroadin that is one classy 87 mustang! Not over the top, but no subtle either. A nice balance.
And as for the other custom jobs in this thread, I'm very impressed! Some quality craftsmen here @ tweak, and it shows.
Hey sledchaser, of all the cars you've owned what's been your favourite and why?

Very nice Jake. I'd never seen the 08 before now, but I like it!
Thanks man. I am still loving it, 7000 km so far. I might take the rails off for the summer if I don't end up using them for mountain bikes.

PS. I'm obsessed with tires.
Sims, I always figured you would go for an early model IS300. Not sure why. I remembered you loved second gen MR2s though
