During WWII, the B-26 Marauder gained the reputation as a Widowmaker due to its high-speed landing demands. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Mercury Marauder should be less unsettling to one's spouse, but is its price too demanding?
They say that beauty is only skin deep while ugly goes all the way to the bone. That's possibly why yesterday's 2002 BMW Z8 - a car so pretty that a kick to the nuts wouldn't distract a beholder - came away with a narrow 54% Crack Pipe loss. The reason is that while sharing the M5's engine and being so damn attractive, the Z8 has a reputation for some ugly handling traits resulting in its not being the Ultimate Driving Machine. Or, maybe it was just too freakin' expensive.
