They call it the Liverpool Drift

I may be getting a new car sometime soon, as my truck feels like its CD4 count is dropping somewhat. I have a feeling that within the year I'll have a case of full-blown truck-AIDS on my hands and every little thing will be significantly harder to fix and more expensive to deal with. If that happens I'm going to have to get a new car. I don't mean new as in fresh off the lot, I don't think I'll ever buy a new car again (I like to waste money and all but WOAH) but maybe about 2-3 years old, in terms of a modern car. I really would rather be driving an old (early 1970s) American bastard car like a Riviera or a Toronado but I don't have the free time to deal with the problems owning those kinds of cars entails. So I'd prolly get something like a Mazda 3 or Toyota Matrix, or maybe even a Scion Box like el cougo has. They're nice and easy to park in garages, double the MPG of my silverado, and easier to keep clean. Only downside is cargo and bike-towing. I'll have several months to think about it. No more pickup trucks for me though, I just don't need one anymore like I used to.

Although, driving small cars does have it's disadvantages, such as...being small:
