Yep, I know what you mean. I could have done it but don't like living that tight especially now with the economy being so sucky around here. That's one reason I've held off on a Nitro because of a new payment plus gas mpg. I just read in the local paper of 2 more plants practically closing their doors. That just means more people out of work and more repo's of cars and homes around here.Looks nice man. I was lucky enough to keep my SRT4. It's kinda rough paying $900 a month in car payments though.:shakehead:
Yep I know what you mean. Actually, I'm a licensed insurance agent so I'm OK in that department but still, even if you have insurance you can still be in a pickle.Being self employeed is great some times... well until you have to go to the Dr. then it sucks.... no insurance.:shakehead:
We just had annual "Mustang Week" here in Myrtle Beach and we had a couple of the young kids (I hate to call them punks because if I would have had a car that quick when I was there age I would have done the same thing) Show up at a midnight cruise where we had just about 30 cars heading out through the country. These two were driving around picking a race and just got totally humiliated by a few of the cars in out cruise. The next night whe we went on a blvd cruise they showed up again but this time were checking out the cars instead of picking a race. There are very few cars I'm truly impressed with when it comes to compact FWD 4 bangers. The ones I've driven I was impressed with were the SRT-4 Neon, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 and the Fusion WRX. All thse cars had been somewhat upgraded but not wildly. Of the three I think the EVO 8 really got my attention more. I wouldn't buy one but I sure don't mind driving one:Racing:.
The SRT-4 are very quick cars for what they are. Unforchantley, most the people that own them are "punk" kids that can't just drive their car. They have to try and race everyone they see.:loser1:
