Hey, I didn't give you permission to post pictures of my wife!

I've been to prison, driven crappy cars, and still had great relationships with wonderful and attractive women. Sure, I've had a girl ask me "you want me to ride in that?" Just tell them to get in the car, and then proceed to show them the most fun that can be had in that vehicle.

I chose to buy a Prius plug-in with a reconstructed title because I wanted something that could do EV for short trips to the gym and to the grocery store, get good fuel economy on the highway (low Cd), and be able to sleep in. I'm 6'2" (1.88m) and can sleep in the back of a Prius.

The most fun and possibly most economical and practical car I've owned was a 1996 Subaru Legacy. It never needed any work (except plugs and wires), got about 28 MPG, and could go anywhere. I did a ton of sleeping in the back, sometimes with a girlfriend. It was finally retired at 240,000 miles after being rear-ended.

EDIT: Buy a motorcycle if you want a fun vehicle that gets the ladies attention. My bike is faster than just about any car that costs less than $50,000, and it can be had for $2,500.

Give me absolute safety, or give me death!
