So, DT's out driving my car around today. Hope the shiny side stays up!
Depends on what you asked of him. If you didn't specify or asked for his "frank" input then odds are high that it may not be "like new" when it gets to you...

He should buy that car. It has a few very minor flaws but nothing you wouldn't expect from a 40000+ mile car.

Small oil leak, check engine light, mismatched rear tires, brake light warning, passenger seat is ripped, smokes on start up but not as much as it does under power, balky grinding noise when it shifts up and down but otherwise pretty clean.

Thanks to the miracle of surveillance cameras on every street corner, I was able to obtain a video of DT test driving Cuda's new car today:

I think earlier this year I said I wasn't going to buy any more cars this year. Dang, this will be my 4th one this year. I need help.

True story: I probably should warned the very nice salesman that I was about to brake hard.

Good news. Cudas car has custom teeth imprints on the passenger dash.

And apparently the passenger seat belt tensioner needs some adjustment...

So DT, did you show up in the Targa to give the salesman some assurance that Mike isn't just wasting his time or in the Miata to scare the shit out of him? :lol:
