    Midlife crisis car

    Here is my midlife crisis car. [IMG][/IMG]
    A 1959 Triumph TR3. What is yours?

    At 53 haven't had a midlife crisis yet.

    Paying off my Saturn Ion a year early really doesn't count does it ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I don't own the Triumph, I just lust after it.

    If I had been able to afford a mid-life crisis car, it would have been a 1955 Mercedes Benz Gullwing Coupe.

    When I have enough money, I'm seriously considering a Subaru Legacy GT Spec B. If I don't luck out, just the six cylinder engine. I love sleeper cars.

    If you're going to be a stereotype than do it right I always say. After obtaining the toupe and mistress, go out and get a nice red Corvette. Simple. American. Straightforward. Says "(I want to signal to the world) I have arrived"

    BMW M6.... see you at the finish line, Bitches.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
