What kind of car do you drive? - Page 49

post #865 of 939

Thanks.  I get a ton of beeps, waves, thumbs up, peace signs, and pictures when I drive either Herbie or my Hippy Bug.  They're fun conversation pieces and I've met a ton of cool people with them.  Lots of fun!!!  And a golf bag will gin perfectly across the back seat.

I'm not a car guy AT ALL. If it's comfortable and runs well for a long time...that's all I need. 

 

It's probably the reason I've only bought two cars, both Buicks. Love them. Go ahead, call it a Granny car...me and the granny's are all extremely comfortable.  :-D

2001 GMC sierra half ton extended cab, it's got a few miles 140k on it but not too many for how old it is, I just love this model gm trucks they just feel so comfortable to drive for me. I however am spending more money getting things fixed like new wheel bearings on the rear axle and brakes and such.

Considering a Nissan GTR, anyone have experience trying to get golf clubs into one?  Trunk seems small but the salesman swears it will hold a golf bag without folding down the rear seats.

Nice ride.  :beer:

 

I wouldn't trust him without trying it.  One bag may fit on an angle, but you may have to pull the long clubs out and put them in the backseat.  I'd also ask myself, how often do you just drive yourself to the course, vs driving/riding with a buddy.  If like me, you generally ride with someone, you'll need room for two bags.  Again, may be doable if the long clubs are pulled out.  A bit of a pain, but not necessarily a deal-breaker.

 

I'd bring my bag over and try.....

Agree with @David in FL 

 

My old VW Golf could fit a golf bag no problem...provided, of course, that there were no golf clubs in it...

 

Bit of an exaggeration but I did need to remove my driver to get it in which is kind of a pain in the ass, especially considering that I like to keep my clubs in the car all season long, you never know when you're going to drive by a golf course. ;-) I would bring your bag and check.

I am going to give it a try, it looks tight.  I keep a bag at my home course so I just keep a bag in my trunk for the range and when I play other courses.

Soon… in addition to the Sorento (and my wife's CR-V)…

 

 

We're going to wrap the car (door panels, back window, etc.) in Golf Evolution and 5SK branding and so on. $700 down, $116/month out the door (taxes, etc. included) on a 36-month lease. Almost a no-brainer at that point.

 

I drove Dave's (we are each getting one) back yesterday from Buffalo. Nearest dealer. Made it to a charging station with about two miles left on it, and then made it back to his house with about two miles left on it as well (thank goodness the estimates are accurate).

Makes sense from an advertising point of view.

 

Crappy car, but tough to argue with $116/month (and the fuel savings costs) to advertise.

 

Doesn't matter, though. I'm not getting it. The wife's being a moron about it. I figured, after insurance and with a conservative estimate on fuel savings, it would cost $45/month to lease it… which is easily justified as an advertising expense, IMO.

 

Plus I was still only 55% likely to get it once I considered that it would be parked outside ALL the time.

 

I just sent the email to the dealer to tell her I was not getting the car.

Yeah, wives don't understand guys and cars.  I was just relieved you weren't buying a Prius.

Well, if you ever run out of juice, you can pick it up and carry it under your arm.....

That's the thing… I wasn't looking at it as a car. Just an advertisement "vehicle."

Look at the bright side, now you can mock Dave mercilessly when you see him tooling around in his! :banana: 

 


 

Erik:  Hey Dave, let's go get electric smart cars and cover them in 5SK stickers, we'll look super cool driving around town!

 

Dave: I dunno Erik, I'd feel pretty silly driving around in one of those little things.

 

Erik: Oh c'mon Dave, I'll do it if you do it.

 

Dave: Alright, DEAL!

Wow that's a steal of a deal and you're right it attracts attention for sure. Perfect for marketing. Ah well, I'm sure a trip down to a jewelry store can sway her views easily!
