Should your host buy a Maserati? Of course he shouldn’t! That would be ridiculous.
Photo of car up for discussion after the fold. And I blame Kim for sucking me into this vortex of greed.
Rent one for a week to get it out if your system.
I suspect it would be hard to rent an early oughts Maserati but he did say it would trade straight across for his current car, so no cash out. Question, however. How much to keep the Maserati running versus your current car? It is beautiful. Available here in the USA for about $24k with low mileage. I have a 2008 Dodge Magnum which I love. Classy looks, AWD for winter, station wagon styling that allows me to carry a lot of stuff when needed for my business and for traveling. Also looks good with a ten foot longboard strapped to… Read more »
This is a 2003 vehicle. I wouldn’t consider something older than that as there are just too many issues and besides, those old cars are really uncomfortable compared to modern inventions. It’s like a Harley Pan-Head – no thank you, I value my kidneys.
As youtube car repair blogger Scotty Kilmer would say: endless money pit.
As someone who has the wife’s fiat 500 needing a new clutch… I am doing the correct thing. Saving up for an Fiat 500 sports or an Abarth 595. Much lower profile, much more fun given the low speed limits in Aoteoroa.
Maseratis and Ferraris are beautiful. If you have a mechanic you can pay full time.
Why not get a Honda Civic Type R? Fast as hell and it will never break.
The best automotive setup in America, and my current goal, is the following: A daily driver that is reliable and cheap to run. For me this is currently a Chevy Volt as EVs are hands down the best daily drivers. A sporty “weekend car” for fun and long road trips. Mine is a BMW 3 series coupe with a manual transmission of course. A big ass truck for hauling trailers and doing farm work. This really depends on one’s lifestyle. Trucks are expensive, so I typically just borrow one as needed. I live in a rural area and move cars… Read more »
Chevy Volt: Just out of curiousity, what happens when you run out of “gas”? Sort of screwed, aren’t you? Not me. Electric cars better go a lot further and charge a lot faster before I will ever buy one. Plus on principle the fact that they are heavily subsidized by the taxpayer pisses me off. I agree on the others though. I have a big diesel which is super useful on a regular basis (use it for my business as well, otherwise I used to have a Toyota 4×4 which was awesome, just won’t pull the big trailer, plus a… Read more »
When the battery runs out then the gas engine kicks on and I have another 300 miles of range. It’s a really unique drivetrain, check it out if you’re interested.
I definitely prefer to have a couple specialized vehicles rather than one vehicle that is just okay at everything.
You’re confusing the Volt (plug in hybrid) with the Bolt (all electric). Bad choice of model names by Chevrolet.
“Catholic churches don’t do guitars, they do organs”….oh if only that were true here in Melbourne’s suburban parishes, Adam.
But there is the Latin mass 😀
At our parish it depends on which Mass you attend: piano, organ or guitars are options as each Mass (4PM Sat, 7,9, 11, 1PM) has it’s own music ministry/choir/etc/
