Apolotical buffer image

My wife, bless her heart. She is usually a very wonderful, very level headed woman. Lord knows I love her dearly. But sometimes, just occasionally, she screws up in the worst way. This time, she agreed.

As probably none of you know, I have but a year before I crank over to 40. Although technically I’m in my 40th year of life now, right? Since we all start at index 0...

Anyway, we were talking, and I told her that I wanted to get another fast car when I turn 40. No, the Abarth is not a fast car, it just sounds fast. First mistake, she said “OK.”

Second mistake, the critical error, she said she agrees that we don’t need two family hauler capable vehicles, and I am free to return to my life as a hellion in a two seater should I so wish it. She even suggested that the yellow C7's will probably have depreciated enough by then that I won’t feel bad about the price. I have a strict limit on the amount of money I am willing to pay for a car, any car, no matter what. I also have a limit on houses, if you’re wondering. These limits are entirely self imposed, but they are there.

Or I’ll be nice and get the STI. Or the SS. Or....

God help up, Oppo....

Post suggestions of cars priced less than $30,000 around December 2018/January 2019 that I should consider. Extra points for yellow cars...
