Same here. I tried teaching wife to drive in the BRZ. She didn't like it at all. Gave up and she continued learning in mum's auto Yaris. She still doesn't like driving but is comfortable in said Yaris so that's something I guess.

I taught MomHawk how to drive an MT on our second date in my '85 MR2. It took her less than 10 minutes to pretty well master it.

That was the point I knew she was the one.

Don't doubt it, considering that its the V6, the shortage of vehicles, it could very easily hit close to the base price for the V8.



I do have to say, I appreciate the simplicity of the interior. It's a Chevy with extra effort put into it, nothing more to it. But I can respect the lack of a giant touchscreen. I appreciate analog controls.

I'm not big on U.S car brands, but this thing is nuts. Color is beautiful too.

The CT4 is too small (just my opinion) but like said above, I bet this hits near the V8 price.

Last I checked you can still order CT4-V Blackwing.

Apart from the fact that Chemical Guys has a sale for their cleaning products, I cannot believe anyone would charge $15 for a 4.5gal BUCKET.

Head to the local Home Depot/Lowes or Autozone and get a 5 gal one for $5. Or even less.


Edit: $80 for a foam cannon? Yikes! The best $15 I ever spent was for one I got off Amazon that even came included with different nozzle tips for the pressure washer.

I didn't see a sale. I see that they have an MSRP price and "their" price. A lot of retailers use this tactic to make it look like you are getting a deal.

Your going to need well over 70k. 2022 first editions Emiras are already
placed around 96k. Add in a now less than 1 year wait time and only 500 being made per year... 100+

I have noticed that, but still, not trying to be frugal, but $9 plus tax for a plastic bucket is a bit too much.
