    Evidently there were quite a few cars fit into that (great) movie:

    Thank you for reminding me to watch that again. Great film.

    'Nother neighborhood car on the street during my dog walk last night, just down the street from the earlier Jag. I've gone by it before without noticing it as anything other than a Chrysler 300.



    The most interesting thing about this car to me is wondering who the heck would buy it.

    A 2006 Bentley? Probably worth around $40k. Not my cup of tea, but it's cool.

    Circa 1994, we had a choice between this and the Ford Explorer. The collective we chose the Explorer.

    Oh, for the path not taken.

    Not sure this belongs here, but usually I see things like this at Sunday car shows on Long Island NY. But I have never seen one just randomly parked on a NY City street. And, interestingly the other parkers gave it a wide berth which is also very unusual so the owner must be some kind of neighborhood big.

    New car day. Or should I say new van day. 4Motion for winter. Hauling bike around just became very easy.

    Lionel, I realized I now have a harder time keeping track of your cars than I do keeping track of your bikes. I think you have the same number of each?

    That VW is kind of a dreamboat though. Would make a good guest room for visitors in these covid days.

    My guess is a Dick Tracey villain.

    I traded in the S4. This is a lot more convenient :)

    Perfect vehicle for bike owners. You see tons of them in every MTB event. I think all my MTB buddies have one. And it is just a few planks and an ikea mattress away from serving as a camper.

    This one has the "good night" option which includes a table in the back that makes a 140x200 bed with the third row seat. It's quite a workout to get the shit in and out though.

    Just to continue the ongoing lament of how we in the US never get the good wagons, I found out yesterday that VW has cancelled the Golf Sportwagen going forward.

    Meanwhile, the Europeans get this awesome Passat Alltrack.

    We have a few years old base model Golf Wagen that we got basically for free as a trade form our similar TDI. My biggest gripe is it's auto versus our old manual.
    Half working on my wife to swap it for a manual Alltrack before they go away. Not seriously though, but I'd rather we owned AWD and stick for the next ten years than our base model auto.
