    Never pick up Tallia, but the paisley lining made me do it.

    You are correct, it will not cover scheduled maintenance. But, with the cars I'm talking, you are going to have repairs. It's not if, it's when. Electronic issues specifically on the Range Rovers and Jags. Huge problems and definitely expensive. If it breaks, the Carmax warranty will cover it.

    Here's some examples.

    I don't think I'd ever buy a 5-9 year old lux car from CarMax or anyone charging anywhere close to "retail" without some sort of comprehensive warranty, and included in the price (e.g.: dealer CPO). But I would love to have a nice old (OLD) Land Rover to beat around in!

    That's an elephant bag? Like a briefcase?

    I want that!

    Good haul of NWOT/NWT Steven Alan shirts, all size S. Most are still showing their fold lines and rolled-up-sleeves (as SA shirts tend to be displayed.) Couple heavy weight oxfords, couple lightweight. Available.

    I sold my 2002 tacoma last year. Plainest of the janes. Guess what? They don't make mini trucks anymore, and people want em. After 12 years and 115,000 miles, I got every purchase cent out of it (from new) and prolly coulda got more.

    Wranglers have the greatest resale of anything. Niche holds value. Ever see what wagoneers fetch these days?

    I would never ever fuck with a jag or older land rover. Those discos have very soft aluminum engines and theyre on borrowed time after 70k miles. I love em too but no.

    There is a used car lot in Jasper, AL, that specializes in Toyota Tacomas. It is actually called Toyota Tacoma Mania.

    That's a rancher coat. Definitely not vintage (pretty recent actually) and not the high end line but shawl collar, made in USA, wool and Navajo-type pattern? Good buy in my book.

    Thanks for the info. It has some minor pilling that I will have to rectify. The lining is pristine and it was less than $5. It will just be flip fodder.
