I literally tried to do that. I can't find any vinyl small animal stickers. I wanted to do the "WWII bumber" "kills" thing.

Yeah, the actual body damage is something I really want to avoid.

Heh. :)

I figure I'll never need plugs again, and since the only brake job it's had was at 142k miles (and there was still pad left) I'll probably never need brakes again either. And the plugs...

That is very interesting. Everything I've read here strongly implies that these cars are even more sensitive to octane than most cars that use 93. I'll give it a try and see what happens. BTW, the...

Bored isn't the right word, exactly, but yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Though I wouldn't use the word "rationalize". Before making decisions like this I create a "T" chart. The chart tells me...

For me it's not about fiscal sense. It's about knowingly getting ripped off. It's a matter of principle. And when I do sell it, I'll almost certainly commute in the iA my wife currently drives, and...

Good point. It's a matter of principle. I don't like being ripped off.

And this speaks to why the FRS, which I've owned since 2013, has 172k miles on it, and the Silverado, which I've had since...

I see the decision this way:

Do I want a souped up econobox or a sports car?
