question of the day what s the lowest class car you can buy

I was just on the virtual horn with Mr. Berkowitz and we were discussing that for $47,000 the 430 horsepower Corvette is a fantastic bargain. We're also both young, dumb and childless. So Farago's pronouncement of the Corvette as a "death Car" has no effect on us. But then Justin dropped this bomb, "my girlfriend's mom, who is on her third Lexus SC430, told me she thinks the Corvette is the lowest class car a person can buy." Ouch. Take that, Vetteirati. And hey, with the Camaro still not in production, the lady makes a point. But not a great point. See my friends, next to Dodger Stadium yesterday I witnessed the scuzziest car imaginable. That's right, a Fox-bodied Mustang 5.0 with Truck Nutz. Seriously, beat that.

    Phil, the detail about Izod is exactly what I was trying to describe! Chills ran up my spine. To clarify, high-end SUV + Bluetooth headset (no doubt used to make tomorrow's spa appointment) = ostentation. Of course Bluetooth in and of itself is not ostentatious, but its use in a high-end SUV is. I stand by "ostentatiously". Also, "one-handed steering" doesn't bother me at all (I drive a stick shift), but pervasive lack of attention does, Bluetooth or no Bluetooth.

    No one voted their own car?

    How about lowriders and anything with hydraulic lifts that can be pumped up and released while driving?
