In 2011, when I was 19, I nearly bought a Dodge Dart. For what it’s worth, I still think it is pretty attractive from some angles. Better than a Focus, that’s for sure. Hot take: Design/marketing has always been FCA’s strength. They do ads that pander to passion/heritage better than almost anyone else.

I also tried to buy a white Mazda2 a few months ago that I never posted about.  It had red flags all over it, and I bailed on it.  Seller said it was his grandmas (title search determined it had just been purchased), lots of story changing and weird things under the hood.


I have also had one or two dark days where I considered selling the truck. Mostly because I was in my early 20's struggling to pay bills and had nowhere to park it.
