I've made my list, checked it more times than I'd care to admit and now I'm ready to share. When I was in the market for a vehicle earlier this year I very nearly pulled the trigger on one of these fine examples you'll find below. It was to the point where I was ready to call up my grandparents in northern Louisiana and ask if the could have a trustworthy relative in Tennessee go check it out for me. The car of which I speak is number one on my comprehensive list of used VW Phaeton's currently for sale in these United States of America. Ultimately it was a friend with whom I go on frequent weekend drives that brought me back from the brink of luxury coach ownership. He made the excellent point that while this may be an insanely comfortable way to run errands and cover long distances, it sure as shit won't hunt down apexes in the canyons. With that in mind I turned my gaze towards smaller, more agile vehicles but the allure of the Phaeton remains and when I get to a point when two cars are viable, I know exactly what I'm going for.
