    Ya.. Purple.. White rims.. WTF man? :facepalm: Looks like something out of a Gay Pride Parade.

    Anyhow I know this topic has been addressed before but I was wondering on this quiet Sunday afternoon.. If you had a little "fuck you money" and could buy a fun car what would ya get? I sure wouldn't get a purple 1995 Vette. Sorry Ronnie. That seriously looks like something Richard Simmon's would drive.

    I just did a quick Google and found two '95 Vette Pace cars (purple, like Ronnie's) which are going around $50,000 K. So if that is my budget ($50-$60,000 taxes in) I would probably buy this...

    ... used 2008 Lotus Exige.. 0-60mph in 3.8 sec, 1/4 mile in 12.7 (stock)

    ...oh... ya... and of course I certainly can't forget the obligatory DAWGS boobs thing.. ;)

    I feel bad that Stephanie has those wrinkle old fingers inside her clam and fart box.

    1995 Corvette Pace Car, Convertible

    This is a well maintained '95 Pace car. This is one of the 527, not a clone. I am selling my baby because I now have a young son and I need a toy car that seats at least 3. I tried to convince wife that she could curl up behind the drivers seat but she complained when I tried to stow the roof on her...

    I get lots of looks and comments about the car. It does have a couple of paint scratches. I have replaced the roof with an OEM vinyl roof with glass and defroster to match the original. I have meticulously replaced or repaired items only with OEM parts to try to maintain as original condition. Everything works! Pictures can be found to the left here under 'My Corvette Photos'
    Get a few extra replacement decals included, along with a fitted car cover. Fluids have always been maintained to the highest standard using only Mobil 1 oil. Mileage is 108K, and is reflected in the asking price. Drive a Pace Car for substantially less than what a 40K mile car would be. Car is located in Michigan but I can arrange shipping anywhere in North America.


    Specs:

    • Convertible Dark Purple Metallic over White Two-Tone paint
    • Special Indy Decal Package and Special Indy Emblems
    • 5.7L Engine (LT1) with 4-Speed Automatic Transmission
    • Performance Axle Ratio (3.07:1)
    • 9.5" Front and Rear Argent ZR-1 Wheels with P255/45ZR17 B/W Tires
    • Black Interior with Black Leather Adjustable Sport Bucket Seats with purple Insert and embroidered Indy Logo on Headrest
    • Electronic Air Conditioning
    • Delco/Bose Music System with electronically tuned AM/FM Stereo Radio, Cassette Tape and CD Player Power Driver & Passenger Seats

    Price - $ 11,995

    The Excige is nice, but very uncomfortable to drive. The Elan is only a bit more used if you shop around and much more suited for daily driving. Wife had an Excige for 6 months and couldn't stand it on the roads around here. Hers didn't have S2 track pack options either. As to your question about what car to buy if having a bit of "fuck you" money on hand. A Bentley Continental R coupe. See them occasionally for sale in the $50k range. Considering they cost $120k to over $200k new depending on options it's not a bad deal.

    whats odd is, ronnie knows nothing about cars.
    anytime someone on the show knows more about a subject than howard, he deems them the expert.
    i doubt he can even change the oil
