    Love that picture as it reminds me of why I sold my 2007 997.1TT Basalt on black.

    You should see a new 911 next to the old.
    They are huge also compared to the old 911’s

    It’s the average car prices now that blow me away. I remember going with my dad to buy a ‘76 Ford Granada for $5k. My first car was an 1989 Prelude for $18k. Dad about disowned me for buying foreign. Forever now I have been locked in at about $20k as what should be new car pricing. In reality the average is probably $40k.
    I saw new Escalades are $90-$107k.

    Well, guess I meant first new car. First used car ever was a 65 Corvair and it was around $500 as I recall. We could drop that engine practically rebuild it in a weekend. Thing plowed through snow but heated off the manifold so I always smelled like exhaust.

    I figured. ;) My first new vehicle was a 1985 Toyota 4x4 PU. $10k and change. Off the lot. That day. At the first place I looked. I hadn't planned on buying. I know that I way overpaid. That was the last time I did that.

    I had 1981 and 1983 Toyota 4x4’s and the 1985 is last without IFS. You’d have to pay $10k to get a good one today!

    Safety standards, making vehicles bigger and heavier does not improve fuel efficiency.
