Weekly Round-up

In which I source great content so I won’t have to write a post.

I can’t think of a better thing to do than test-drive cars I can’t afford. Ten minutes of pure escapism so wonderful I ignore the yammering salesperson next to me. Seems that a woman in VA had the same idea, except she was a little too eager to peel out of the dealership and took a few extra cars with her. Brings a whole new meaning to “I flip cars as a hobby.” (H/T Autoblog)

A Chevy dealer in Peltier, TX had 48 wheels and tires swiped from their cars this week. Nothing worse than showing up for work and seeing half your inventory up on blocks. Try explaining that shit to management. (H/T Jalopnik)

On the flip side, some lighter fare…

First up, what does your car color say about you? Mine essentially said “I’m broke as hell.” Oh, wait.That was the condition of the paint, not the color itself. If anything, feast your eyes on the excellent cars pics in the article. A little eye candy never hurt anyone.

Rumor has it that any color of BMW says, “I’m an asshole who doesn’t use their blinker,” but your didn’t hear that from me.

Bored at work? Need something to pass the time while on break, lunch or in the fifth meeting of the week? Check out this excellent Tumblr. The older the car, the more amazing it is to see their auto bud.

Holy crap…who would do that to a car?! According to reddit’s Shitty Car Mods forum, a lot of people. Comic relief during a tough week, or a tragic commentary on misplaced priorities. Your call.
