Well at least you have good style. Always laugh hard seeing mustang drivers with a fake hood scoop & automatic transmission.

Thanks, bro. I'm also fully aware that the fucking thing might blow out two weeks in. Might go for Alfa Romeo Giulia, which is still retarded...

totally different type of car, but i've been wanting a lexus ls 400 in white desperately for years for the same reason(saving money down the line). if i had that car i could just go homeless and live in it in comfort i guess, so it would be a good investment.

Must be some 4D chess trolling. Loved my 156, so more Alfas are welcome.

Yes, Lex would fun as fuck.

Forgot, why the fuck are all Lancer Ralliart (non-Evo's) automatic? 241 HP but automatic.. We'll see what dumb shit I'll get.

You're thinking of Guilietta? Hatchback?
Because Guilia is a fucking beast mode sedan that would be Scarlett Johansson if it was a girl... But if you don't like the way Alfas look it's fine, kind of aquired taste.

IDK why ScarJo got brought up. But sheís attractive. Just saying. Maybe itís the red head thing from Black Widow. Or the fact that Iím buzzed but damn.

No problem, bro. Thought Alfas were universally known for the aestethics (and crappy build) but it's still subjective. You're not in Europe, right?

I see. I fucking loved 159, GT, Brera look, but to each its own.

Supras are cool but the price tag, even for old ones, is absurd.

But maybe you guys import from Japan? Or are imports crazy taxed?

Honestly, I meant just the hilux, itís a utility but no shit itís been the top selling car here for years

Around the time of that first fast and furious movie it was all about supras, s15ís and skylines but most of them got wrapped around trees, the old ones still in great condition are worth around 100k now - mental
Iím not sure what people do now but yeah round 2000s everyone was grabbing them from Japan

I donít really like the newer Toyota sports cars

Trying to think of modern sports cars that are popular here - see a few Audi TT but I would say thatís a ladies car too haha! Mates got a r8 I think theyíre tits but for me thatís a lot of money

My fave cars are probably land cruiser 79 series, land cruiser troopy and I like those old Land Rover perenties

You will google these and just think wtf fuck this guys opinion on performance cars haha!

Dream car 77 torana or xb gt. The mad max car
Iím a basic bogan

Now you're talking. Totally ridiculous & not necessary however I want one. Top tier engineering. Designated team testing & improving that tank for over a decade. Lovely front end too   
 
Can't believe Im admitting this... I want a new Camry

F trucks, tundras etc donít fit so not as practical
Looks sick tho, but us f150 raptor just so expensive here, 2013 models go for 100k lol. Should import one to sell haha

Iíve moved from Sports cars to Camrys. I used to like Corvettes and Mustangs but as Iíve mellowed out Camrys grab my attention. Theyíre comfortable and that mileage is great.

For sure, if I had to trust a car with my family's safety and overall reliability, Toyota wins...

But I'm bored ex-junkie and want something dumb.

Ordered a boat load of stuff for sale on my online skate store and the payment on my credit card is looking pretty scary.

I've been neglecting my office job to focus on the store. I've been holding out for a job from another company but they have been slow moving and I would hate to be dicked around after months of waiting for them to come back with an offer.

I agree, but I'm feeling really disconnected from the job. I understand that the reason why a job pays you money is because it is unpleasant, hence you are are compensated for it. But I've really lost all interest in this job. My was the only one in my team based in my own country, my manager and rest of the team are based in the same country. So the lack of geographical proximity does not help with feeling disconnected from my colleagues. Coupled with COVID slowing down travel (previously a sizable part of my job) and having my manager and colleagues really far away has me drifting like a balloon in a convention center.

I'm really enjoying running my skateshop online but the margins are decent to thin even without the overhead of a shop front and operating it entirely out of my apartment. I've ran my own business before (office, sales people, admin staff, distributors, post-sales service) to know how stressful and tough that route can be. Right now business is decent, I move 100-200 worth of product a day but that's because kids are finishing up their exams and the end of year holidays are approaching. Come January when school picks up again I dont' want to be stuck with mountains of inventory I can't clear in time.

When it was time to graduate from high school, I carried out the plan to purposely sabotage my grades and graduation in order to gain another year of school. Exclusively for the reason that I became aware that new challenges and obligations associated with the graduation would break up the time and structures to the detriment of skateboarding. because I observed exactly this happening to peers who were older. they stopped or something like that. I also communicated this very openly. as a result, my worried parents turned to experts for advice and i had to talk to them. Of course, they were completely overwhelmed with my point of view and therefore attested it to some form of high intelligence and genius. that was about 20 years ago and i still haven't really managed to pull my head out of my ass.
I'm pretty sure I was and am actually just really really lazy and a little sociopathic
