Ed’s neighbors questioned his priorities, but no one ever questioned his taste in cars.

    The answer to the question nobody asked. What an Edsel sports car would look like if it was still in production.

    Looks like Ed got a bargain on a mistress.

    With the approach of the launch of the new Bugatti Chiron, resale values of the old model Veyron start the inevitable slide of depreciation familiar to other owners of VW Group products. The improved affordablity opens the Veyron resale market to a much, much wider range of buyers.

    I have a little V.I.S.I.T, if I’ve understood that term correctly. Close to my school, there is this mysterious 1989 Nissan Bluebird estate that looks one hundred percent factory fresh. Not even a single scratch in the paint. The car seems to be used almost everyday, it’s in a rather wealthy part of town and it’s ridiculously well maintained. One day I saw it with a smashed taillight, and on the very next day it had been replaced. How?

      Someone with enough money to buy a new car but has decided to drive the same car for 30 years. Just keep it in shape and when something breaks just have your mechanic repair it.

        They didn’t decide, they got sentimental over it. It has been a psychological experiment, how long does it take to get sentimental over a Nissan Bleubird? They answer lays somewhere in between one day and thirty years. The other explanation is the experiment is still running. Even after thirty years we still don’t like this car.

          Either someone got sentimental, or they are just really frugal and practical and don’t see any need to buy a new car while the old one works just fine.
          Or maybe it’s just someone like me, I’ve been driving the same car since 2003, and have been planning on replacing it since at least 2007. It’s just that nothing has come up that would be more fun less dreary and also in budget. So I keep driving it. Mine is much more rusty than that bluebird, though.

      Compare two identical cars, in identical mechanical condition. One is dirty, missing a hubcap, has a cracked taillight and an interior piled full of crap. The other is clean and has had a bit of effort put into keeping it up visually. The only significant difference between the two is appearance. Which car do you think will be treated better, not just by the owner, but by other family members, mechanics, or passers by out on the street?
      I’ve seen this play out time and again: once a car starts -looking- like junk, people will start -treating- it like junk. It’s not malicious or intentional, but simply human psychology. I suspect the owner of this fine Bluebird understands this, and just wants to keep entropy and decay at bay. Good on them for keeping it up, I say.

      Apparently Christine has a younger, Japanese cousin.

    I read a book that tried to explain why people live in slums. One chapter was about people who made choices like Ed.

    Anyone else had a chance to watch Urban Myths yet? Bloody brilliant series about True… ish stories. Here’s Eddie Marsan being Bob Dylan, on his way to meet Dave. Well worth the 20 minutes.
    I stumbled upon this series when someone joked about Iwan Rheon(Ramsay Bolton from GOT) playing a a nicer charachter after Ramsay.. He plays aspiring artist Adolf Hitler.

      I’m no Bob Dylan fan, but that was pretty good, and probably true-ish. Bob Dylan actually talks pretty quickly and has good enunciation, if I had to quibble. Though, I heard him when he had a channel on satellite radio and he was a bit mush-mouthed. In the early ’90s his speaking voice was sort like Tom Waits. Certainly, he doesn’t use cowboy phrases, being from Duluth and New York. He does think of himself as a song and dance man, tho.
      I suppose, as a dramatic portrayal, the weirdness of his speech is meant to convey how weird the whole story is.

    So this is an update for the Viper motivational poster?

      I didn’t realize Hooniverse contributors got Vipers and Bugattis as loaner cars…

        My Cizeta Moroder is in the shop.

        1. Batshitbox Avatar

          As soon as I saw the name Moroder I thought of Giorgio Moroder (because I’m such a Disco Stu.) I was trying to work some clever reference between the car and the musician, but it turns out they’re the same Moroder.

    A proper trailerboy would turn this into a Fiero replica

    They may not question his taste in cars, but Ed’s neighbors may well be questioning the existence of a meth lab.

    So for the first time in a few years, I find myself trying to sell a used car. Particularly, a 2004 Trailblazer for $3350. It seems that the online marketplace has changed in the last few years. Of course I put an ad up on Craigslist, but I also advertised it on various Facebook Marketplace/yard sale/flea market/trader groups. I have gotten all of one phone call from Craigslist, but numerous replies via Facebook. As expected, about half the responses are total idiots. I’ve had no less than three offers of $2,000, the last one got pissed when I responded “Yes, but I’m keeping the engine, transmission, doors, seats, wheels, and tires.” Ask stupid questions, get stupid answers. In an ad with 9 pictures, covering all angle of the car, I’ve had two requests “Can you send pictures?” I just sent them the 9 pictures from the ad, no response. I’ve had two messages in Spanish. My ad is in English, nothing about Espanol in the ad, my name isn’t Hispanic. I’ve also had one series of messages in some form of broken “hood English” to bring the car to them. No, I don’t want to get robbed today. Also had one long series of message of someone bargaining with me on the price, requesting lots of information, agreeing to take the car and then having no interest the next day. Also had one person trying to find out where the town I live in is located, not my address, just what part of town, is Google that big a secret? I’ll let you guys know how it turns out.

      Maybe it helps to double the price? I’ve had a lot of similar shenanigans with cheap cars. The worst was probably when I reserved a car for a guy who would pick it up a week later. He did neither call, nor text, nor show up. When I finally got to him, he said he didn’t want a car with a garage painted hood; something he discovered upon a second reading of the ad after a couple of days. No need to inform the seller, idiot me, about that though… gifs/tumblr_mdg72sKsdL1qef2y7.gif
