Canon 60D

Get funky with it.  There is no end to the fun you can have, like when the Top Gear Bugatti Veyron drops in on Scottsdale.

Lunacy on Stone Street

Once upon a time, there were Honda Civics...
there was a time when Honda was on fire, and could do (almost) no wrong. The gen 1 Civic was like a little cherry bomb lobbed into a Weight-Watcher’s convention... And this gen2 Civic was huge step forward; now instead of wearing a Civic like a badge of honor, one could now actually step into it and think of it as a legitimate car.

If you're the 1980 sane version of South Park's Mr. Garrison.

Big Blue Devil: Little Blue Pill

Why do you only see old guys driving ZR1s?   Let's think about this:
So maybe it's not cash.  Let's think some more:
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
At CVS for what?
QED, right?  Not so fast, my friend..

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
supercharged V8 to get to the Super 8

It takes an hour for Viagra to kick in. Hookers charge by the hour, if your balls are so blue you go off the map for nookie. A ZR1 has a top speed of 205 mph.  If you have the hooker, and pop the pill in the parking lot (with a Red Bull just for laughs and your own supercharging), a full speed blast gets you to the beach in 63 minutes.  No candy ass garden variety Ferrari is going to do that.  With luck and a tailwind, you only pay for three hours, since the beach part will take all of about 30 seconds.

Confidential Italian Secretary

Alfa Romeo Iniezione
Best FIAT ever
Every Confidential Italian Secretary should drive a rusty Alfa Romeo (_____) Iniezione and live in midtown Phoenix.   Any other climate and she'd have to drive a pile of rust and peeling window film.

What to drive

when it's 1977 and your cocaine bills make you downsize from that Mark V

1977 LTD II

The Ford LTD II.  "II" because it's twice as good?  Two because that's how many models are spun off the same chassis?  No.  More like "II" because the first type was so successful.  "II" because maybe you'll think this shitbox has something in common with the good one:

Examples?  Examples:


1971 Mustang Mach 1


Ford Mustang II


I'm looking at the man in the mirror...

And concluding that his blood is as blue as the car.

And with blue paint and blue blood comes blue hair riding shotgun.

And blue balls, probably.  And little blue pills.

[caption id="attachment_13353" align="alignnone" width="640"] MPG is irrelevant[/caption]

At least they don't clutter the car pool lanes of the commoners.  Ferrari 456M GTA.

Do me baby

1970 Dodge Charger R/T
This is the last of the cool Chargers.  Basically, the Aunt Jean mobile on corn liquor.  Starting in MY 1971, they got fat and dorky.  Instead of appealing to Vin Diesel consumers, they switched focus to the BK Lounge manager-types.
