Pimp your ride, Tom Wolfe showed you how it's done. - Page 2

I like it. Personally I'd have gone for the CTS-V, but then Wolfe doesn't strike me as a super-sedan driver.

Tom Wolfe, what a poser. A true pimp with drive an Escalade, with platinum rims to mathc his pimp stick.

Or maybe he just likes the GPS system and the complimentary XFM.

Not to mention the Northstar system.

Why are you so obsessed with the Northstar system.

Why are you so dismissive of it?

Now this is the Caddy that TW should have chosen.




I learned to drive in this car.

What do you think my car seats are made of?

I really don't see that the Caddy meets his level of panache. Not at all. Anyway, what's Northstar but a large engine coupled to specialized breaking and suspension? No match for panache.

Hmm, modern cars with panache...Morgan Aero 8, Spyker C8, and it is true, even the new 300 does have a presence.

Huntsman

I was once in a late 20s Crane Simplex that had power windows and the car didn't need to be running to operate them. They worked with a push-button.

I was offered the car for free if I could start it. That was a tempting proposition, but I couldn't. It's just as well because I found sitting in it very uncomfortable.

Does anyone think he also has a black one to go with his black suits? @ LabelKing: What makes you think he doesn't already own a car like that? Anyway, I think there are serious disadvantages to driving an oldtimer, perhaps not for Mr. Wolfe, who can afford having the maintenance done for him, but certainly for those who are not so well-off. A new car most likely is safer and easier to drive, and doesn't fall apart as soon as you start the engine. (There are exceptions to this rule off course, f.i. Alfa Romeo.)

Yikes. Did Alex made him a black shirt?
