    Default C8

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Well, there is yet ANOTHER car whose appeal completely escapes me.....

    Nope, just Corvettes.

    I was actually considering a hybrid, btw.... the Honda Insight, which thankfully no longer looks horrible, and has an amazingly low price tag: loaded with ALL the toys, the top-of-the-line is price at just over $29K, vs. well over $35K for a conventional IC Accord in similar trim. 51 mpg, to boot....

    ....but I haven't made up my mind yet.

    The 'vette is a remarkably capable car for the price. And GM continues to improve it.

    I just can't get past the sense that - to drive one - I should don a chartreuse leisure suit accessorized with white patent leather belt and platform shoes.... <G>

    Hehehehe.... I had a good laugh, at that one!

    Well, I'm certainly not going to judge some old rich guy who buys a vette.... even IF he looks damn silly to me. What matters is how HE feels about it.

    I'm not indicting sports cars, either... I don't have the capacity to own one (I could afford one, but don't have a garage to store it in), but if I did, I'd consider it... but not a 'muscle' sports car. I leased a Miata back in the 90's for two years, and as long as I didn't have to commute in traffic with it, it was kinda fun. I owned an MGB back in the mid-70's, and it was a lot of fun to drive. I lean towards light weight, and easy handling, as opposed to sheer power.

    Good, I was expecting a gun thread about our service rifle. This is much better.
