Last thrusday I was sitting perfectly still at a red light when an old woman chose to drive directly up my arse. I've just found out my insurer isn't prepared to repair the car, which means I need to get a loan and buy a new one.
While this is a colossal pain in the arse I'm excited to be car shopping. I would appreciate suggestions for my new ride. What do you see me in?
No Oscar Meyer Wiener cars please. Batmobiles considered.


UPDATE:
I caught a bus up to sydney this morning and drove him in this. I give you Kermit the Hulk.


and as an unexpected bonus it came with a handsfree phone kit installed, so now I can just speak into the ether like Captain Picard.

delorean is a contender, but they're a bit pissweak

Chipmnk

I was going to say a 70 Chevelle, but if you're not into a Gran Torino, ne'ermind.

i like 70s muscle, don't get me wrong. just not that model.

nothing right this moment, but what i just buried was a 97 EL Falcon, like the one on the right here

what i'm shopping for realistically is this. a Kermit green '07 BF MkII Xr6 Falcon.

that's the worst thing i've ever seen Steve. I'd rather have an AMC Gremlin.

PogoLightning

i like fords.

and i drive a mercury. it's really nice.

79? that's a 69, surely. which makes it all the more perfect. i've always been a fan of them.

get a jeep.

i would personally enjoy a vintage army jeep just for messing around in, but it has drawbacks as a family vehicle. something like Skaw's orange Scout would be fun.

twins. there's a picture of me sitting inside but I cant find it.

that looks like some genuine serious buyer inspecting going on there.

I'd never seen one before! I have the same wide-eyed look of wonder on my face that I did the first time I saw a pair of breasts (almost 4 years later, to the day)

to be honest i cant even picture you driving a car

only a motorcycle

heykimby

Yeah, Nick's first big purchase in Aus will probably be a falcon of some description.

I'd prefer he got one of these but I think we'll probably end up with a car instead.

i'd love a bike but i'm too reckless to survive long. my dad used to ride and he's a shattered mess these days. that old indian is nice.

Steve The Great

you could always get Nick Cage's car

Steve The Great

or this if you wanna turn classy.

those last three are handsome options. maybe a little too handsome though. i'd feel like i'd need to dress up before exiting them. maybe not so much in the mustang.

NCowick

The Scion FR-S looks pretty cool, and I think is supposed to be far more affordable than some of these other out of reach options (out of reach for me anyway). Not sure if they're out yet, or not. <del></del> <del></del> <del></del>

that's a pretty cool looking "device" but i dunno if i'd call it a car. is it electric? it can't be the production model with so little clearance in the wheel arches.

NCowick

Ha, no it's not electric. You're right about these being pics of the concept prototype. It has a little more clearance in the production model pics. Not saying this would be top of my list or anything. Just think it does look pretty cool.
