Stopping by after 7+ years away. - Page 2
I'm pretty sure there is a reason all my spanish and french friends make fun of the fiat 500. After finally driving one this spring, all I have to say I know why everybody makes fun of it. Miata/S2000 are fun to drive but are not better than a 3. Personally I'm not a fan of the 3 but to call it boring and mediocre is ridiculous.
To the OP, welcome back.
I'm gonna make such a post when I'm 85.
I was going through some old books and came across Steve Brnikman's book from 2003. It was like a blast in the past and made me think of this forum and the time I spent here.
While I am not sure if many of the same posters/lurkers from 2002-4 are still around - nor do I think that I made a substantive enough contribution to be remembered, I wanted to say hello to anyone who is around from back in the day. Of course, hello to those of you who have joined since 2004.
I haven't been too heavily involved in buying many exciting pieces, I have however become addicted to Loro Piana outerwear. By my figure I have spent enough on Loro Piana coats that I could have bought a BMW 3-series instead.
I am not sure that I will be here daily, but I do plan to stick around and try to catch-up on what has been happening.
Again, hello to friends old and I hope new.
OP, Pics would improve this thread immensely and perhaps get the Road and Track crew back on topic.
Glad to see we in MI getting some heavy presence on this forum, at least we'd be very well-dressed on the way to the soup kitchen :-)
Other's on my short list are Mazda Mx5 Convertible, and the Honda S2000 Convertible
None of these cars would do. One lake-effect snow event and you'd be better off walking for then next few months.
What you need is something big and American, preferably getting less than 14mpg...
