And, long-run, my prospects are probably better in my current career.

 

I was reading a yahoo article the other day about how important it is to have a 2nd job, hobby job sort of thing.

 

First, there is a fair amount of instability in the job market, so you never know when you'll need to suddenly rely on that 2nd job to put food on the table.


Second it shows enteupenural spirit, although not necessarily an ability to spell correctly, which is very important in a marketplace where agility and drive are key to sucess.

I wonder if it will run into the same issue the previous Supra ran into: the brand name limitation. It may outperform and be more reliable than other cars in it's price category, but at a certain price point, people more often than not will go for the "recognizable luxury" name. The supra wasn't discontinued because they got worried they were selling too many of them. This perhaps should have been released as a Lexus model, a little brother to the LFA or something.

I can forgive them for overstyling a car after giving us boring grocery getters after they axed the Supra.

 

Go on and overstyle; I'd rather see that rather than the stale crap Honda is pumping out nowadays.  At least now it seems like Toyota is pumping some life back into a car.

Since we're still on cars, I'd like to address the reliability issue. A few years ago, Toyota built cars that accelerated by themselves and killed a bunch of people. This from one of the supposed most reliable makers. Honda has had recent engine recalls. No car manufacturer is immune from such things. A Ferrari has way more soul than some silly Japanese car that was born out of imitating a mid century American muscle car.

@Ian Erickson that is sweet dude- probably first fit of yours I've liked. You're definitely coming into your own.

Is this worth buying at $35?

Also, look at this - some idiot took a bespoke 1934 morning coat and decorated it by sewing on buttons all over.

Haha, the car talk will never die...

 

I like practical cars. This is my next car (assuming no new models come out in the next couple of years), a Subaru XV Crosstrack.

 

 

post #91919 of 110374

@Orgetorix, what size is the jacket? Drool...

 

Also, I think a seamripper was built to tear off those fucking buttons! Atleast you'd have MOP buttons for days if you did that hahaa.

Ok price for self wear. eBay, you might get $50 to $80. Now, if this were a RRL...But I would have coped if this were my first barn coat.
