Illustration for article titled Buying a car sight-unseen sounds like -- and largely is -- a bad idea.

But I think I’m getting desperate.

I am the most unintentional automotive “hipster” I know. I fall for seemingly attainable, at times maligned, cars. Then they turn out to be frustratingly elusive — IS Sportcross, Tercel wagon, 2-door XJ, manual Allroad, even an old goddamn Corolla liftback.


I guess I also didn’t predict 1) selling my Celica in one day, and 2) going three months without having bought its replacement. It’s now November and the selection of vehicles will only get even thinner :/ Here’s to another winter of the longbed on black-iced roads.
