car junkie with commitment issues

reality… I don’t want a perfect car, not even close

the reality is that most cars will never look as good as most the pics I show on the site…  and I really don’t want mine to have perfect paint, engine bays, interiors…. and especially perfect and rare wheels. Lets get real, I park my shit on the street, I drive the life out of it, I tag curbs, I put wrenches on my roof and I wash it about 4 times a year.

“pretty” cars are a pain in the ass, your always worried about people stealing and parting your car, getting rock chips, door dings, or just taking your wheels while you eat dinner. there’s already more then enough stress in life to worry that much about a nicely bent piece of tin (your car).

I will admit that while I drive hard I will replace and upgrade every part that needs it, I like my cars to solid and reliable… basically ready to roadtrip whenever needed.

and no I don’t go to the track or auto-x, I’ve got better things to do with my weekend.

so here’s a grainy shot of a wagon with the right wheels and stance, sure it only looks 70% as good as the others but I don’t care… I’d rather have this one.
