Who would have thought today's designers would borrow from the infamous Pontiac Aztek?
"As the saying goes, start with a large one."
But if you'd still like to try, the piece also has some suggestions about what to consider buying. (Though I don't know how much you want to trust a man who writes, ". . . it’s theoretically possible to make money on rare and old cars, but I’ve never done it.")
"It’s extremely hard to be funny in the written word, so much so that you should probably not even try. Which makes this Craigslist ad all the more remarkable, because it is very funny."
That would be diecast cars, but still . . . (9.5 minute video.)
"The automotive subculture will be with us for a long time to come."
Supposedly because you've got to hit the button like you really mean it.
If you plan to--or even if you think there's a good chance you might--crash your car, you might want to consider a McLaren 570S Spider.
Amen to this.
And see also "What Does an Electric Vehicle Replace?"
The emissions reductions from the adoption of a new transportation technology depend on the emissions from the new technology relative to those from the displaced technology. We evaluate the emissions reductions from electric vehicles (EVs) by identifying which vehicles would have been purchased had EVs not been available. We do so by estimating a random coefficients discrete choice model of new vehicle demand and simulating counterfactual sales with EVs no longer subsidized or removed from the new vehicle market. Our results suggest that vehicles that EVs replace are relatively fuel-efficient: EVs replace gasoline vehicles with an average fuel economy of 4.2 mpg above the fleet-wide average and 12 percent of them replace hybrid vehicles. Federal income tax credits resulted in a 29 percent increase in EV sales, but 70 percent of the credits were obtained by households that would have bought an EV without the credits. [Bold added.] By simulating alternative subsidy designs, we demonstrate the distributional and efficiency outcomes across different policy alternatives.
Just on the edge of corny, but still far better than the other car ads I see these days. (1:30 minute video.)
