Can't we please encourage you to get something, how do I say, ballsier? You like chicks yes? I bet you could trade your payment on that for something with character and some form of obnoxious performance... I beseech you please before it's too late and youre trapped at home every night watching Phineas and Ferb or worse yet potty training.

Now when I was your age I had a GTI that would surprise a lot of 911s (off the line) and looked like it was designed for Darth Maul to cruise beach parking lots in... And of course I dont do any of above nanny p-owned sissy daddy bs myself at all...

But act before its too late my son. Live before you begin to die.
I wanted a fit also. Commuting 35 mileas each way can really take it's toll on you and your car. When you're sitting at a stop, handling really doesn't matter very much, but the mpg without having to deal with a hybrid system is appealing to me. Also, I would think that it being so light, with the right suspension and chassis stiffening it could be fun to drive as a daily.

cliffs: I would totally do a honda fit for a daily driver as long as i had non-appliance vehicles for the weekend.

So when my engine finally kicks the bucket on a scale of 1-10 how hard would it be to make an electric conversion?

It's okay, Matt. If you feel like you need your car to prove your manhood/automotive acuity, then more power to you.

I believe a car can be an instrument of many things, but never validation.

The only acceptable chevy is the Corvette.

Nearly every other one is crap compared to what glorious ford puts out

The only acceptable Chevys were never even sold here, or made at all:

And you need more padding and pillows in your living room.

The bigger problem is getting power to the wheels.
Miles wants Hewland, Kalim wants Porsche, upside down.
