Luxury Cars are the Only Cars Worth Driving

edited September 2007 in Social Entropy++
After much deep thought and pondering, I have come to the conclusion that luxury cars are they only cars worth driving. Unfortunately, with the sum of $2000 in my bank account something and fine as a new luxury car appears out of the question for the moment. I have seen some old luxury cars from the 80s in the paper for $2000 or less, and I am definitely considering buying one. I pretty much require a fancy car with leather seats and the like, which I sure as hell won't find in an old ass Honda or Chevy.

Right now I just need some model recommendations to look into for a used luxury car that runs, is less than $2000, and has leather seats. What are your suggestions? Also this is a general luxury car thread so feel free to discuss your luxury cars or discuss how great luxury cars are here.

Here are some pictures to get us started.

    I drive a truck and it runs, which is my definition of "luxury"

    Get a rickshaw. I doubt importing an authentic china-man can be that expensive.

    I would feel uncomfortable in a super expensive car

    I'd probably be fine with a Ford Focus or something

    Acuras make it in to the ultra low end luxury segment of the luxury car market.

    last time I checked, luxury cars were pretty shitty and not at all practical (not like "the gas mileage is a little impractical", like "H3 without any of that's tiny amount of appeal"), and there is no reason to have one.

    I would feel uncomfortable in a shitty ass car like a Ford Focus. If you like Fords perhaps you could consider a Lincoln because they are luxury cars made by Ford.

    Here is a picture of one:

    With $2000, you won't be able to lick the oily asshole of a Rolls or a Bently.

    Try an '85 BMW with the rear bumper falling the fuck off.

    Last time I checked a Hummer is way crappier than any luxury car. Luxury cars are actually extremely practical. They purvey (I hope I used that word right) a sense of taste and style, unlike something as gaudy and ghastly as a Hummer. Luxury cars provide the ultimate in a quality ride, and are much more comfortable. Do you like sitting on a seat made out of carpet? Neither do I, and that is just one reason why a luxury car with leather seats is a far more practical choice.

    Yeah, I know I won't be able to get a Rolls Royce or something yet (although there's one in the classified section my paper from 1987 at only $20,000!) but I think a Cadillac, BMW, or a Benz would be a fine starter car.
    I wouldn't be so angered by this if you didn't make it seem like you were trying to get one of these cars for the sole purpose of appearing to be affluent.

    I can't help it that you're jealous I have the money for a luxury car and you don't.

    Luxury cars are not "practical". A piece of shit Ford Focus or a Kia is "practical", since it does the job you need it to for the least amount of money.

    Your pining for a luxury car is the equivalent of Ron Burgundy yelling "Hey everyone! Come and see how good I look!"

    Luxury cars are bulky, difficult to drive and always have terrible gas mileage. Honestly, are you even old enough to drive?

    Sorry, if your idea of "money for a luxury car" is less than $2000 than I, apparently, have the money to buy enough luxury cars that I can rope them together, stand on the front, whipping them one by one and shouting "HYAAAH!" while, behind me, every celebrity who has ever appeared as a guest on SNL partakes in a rousing recital of the Swan Lake.

    EDIT: But not enough money to correctly use "then" and "than", apparently.

    On the contrary luxury cars provide a far nicer ride than any non luxury vehicle. I am old enough to drive in fact I'm almost 19.

    Go back and read what I've written. Have you ever seen a Rolls-Royce Phantom? Have you ever sat in one? It is like being at the helm of the fucking Titanic. Bentleys, Maybachs and all that shit is no better. They are all huge vehicles and are not fun to drive. Parking gigantic vehicles is a huge pain in the ass.

    You didn't even back that up with any sort of talk about superior suspension or background noise-cancellation or anything. In fact, the only real thing you've brought up to differentiate luxury cars from non-luxury cars is a leather interior, and that's not exactly an automobile accessory that belongs solely to the financial bourgeoisie of the American population, even if it isn't a sign of poverty.

    My idea of a nice ride in an urban situation is a Mini Cooper, even if it is a bit affluent (to put it lightly), but that's not because of its features or its interior but because it's so small that its very easy to keep track of ones surroundings and park without worrying and blah blah blah.

    My idea of a nice ride in a rural/highway situation is anything with A/C that I can stretch out in.

    This is very subjective. Don't claim that it isn't, and don't state that luxury cars just automatically provide a "far nicer ride". This thread pretty much belongs in DnD at this point.

    I have seen a Rolls-Royce Phantom on the mother fucking street. It was huge. It was amazing. The craftsmanship was unbelievable. It was fantastic.

    Really I think you just need to read up on luxury vehicles.

    Pretty shitty actually. Well..... I did get leather on the inside! and...... Oh, oh, side mirror turn signals!

    However, I called myself a bitch because I only paid for the extra couple for the badge, my parents paid for the Civic part!

    Man, I'm a little bitch.
