Default The beginning of the end

Hello everyone. Longtime reader, first time posting outside the tech forums.

Call me Richard. I'm a 30-something software engineer in NYC. I drive a blue '99 Miata with lots of go-fast goodies bolted on...or at least, I used to.

Sadly, as you can probably guess from the link, she doesn't get much use these days, and she won't be mine for much longer. Yes, it's true: this lurker is shamelessly accumulating 2 or 3 more posts, in hopes of unlocking the New Topic button in the FS forum.

But so long as I'm here, feel free to mock me for my transportation choices. What should I upgrade to next?







I'm leaning toward #3

You will up the most chicks in number 3, but as a software engineer you are probably sexy as **** and dont need that.

Good call. The way I see it, if you can stuff 10 clowns in there, just think how easy it will be to hide the body.

A dual turbo LSx Cayman can't be wrong now, can it?
Just make sure to add some pink neons for balance.

I saw a scion xB yesterday on the side of the road providing roadside assistance...or perhaps he was receiving roadside assistance.

From 1/4 mile, I swear to god it looked like a custom, one-off, purpose built, clown school bus. I told my girl - "OMG, that looks like a clown school bus!!!"

And then I realized it was an xB with a vinyl wrap on it.

Once we were beside it on the road, in light to moderate traffic, i took the opportunity to glance directly at the xB's broadside. On the side, it was written, very clearly:

SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION.

If that black Cayman is wrong, I don't want to be right. Unf.

The LS9 (and the lifesize My Little Pony decals) are for the clown / chick magnet / corpse disposal / getaway car, obviously. You can't put that **** on a Cayman. That's just Science(tm)
