I tend to like German cars. The Volkswagen Golf is good. An E30 BMW 3 Series is also good. Throwing the rear subframe of an E30 under a forest green Golf and then destroying some tires is just something else.

Cars are like LEGOs for adults who realized they could buy a car for what it costs to buy a LEGO kit these days. With LEGOs, you have to mix the Fire Department play set with the Airport play set if you want your Godzilla complex of destruction to be completely satisfied. This Golf exemplifies a similar concept, mixing two good cars and creating a monster.

I was just on Craigslist this morning looking at threateningly cheap BMWs, and that’s probably where I’m going to end up tonight.
