A Station Wagon

The primary thing that gets me out of bed (slowly and begrudgingly) to head to the office each day is money.  Money is very important because, when we have enough of it, we can trade that money for a station wagon.  J-Llo loves station wagons, and as her dutiful husband, I fully support her.

Not just any station wagon.
The Cadillac CTS-V is rear wheel drive, has a supercharged V8 that produces 566 hp, and comes with a six speed manual transmission.  All that in a STATION WAGON!

In short, it is everything I have ever wanted out of a car.  I would like mine fully blacked out and in my garage right now.

My primal desire for this car overrides all rational arguments against it, such as:
  1. The ridiculousness of spending lots of money on a depreciating asset.
  2. The $2,600 gas guzzler tax included in the purchase price, as well as fuel costs in general.
  3. My repugnance to purchase a vehicle from GM due to their demonstrated commitement to making low quality cars over the last 30 years.
  4. My repugnance to purchase a vehicle from GM due to my own radical political beliefs.
  5. There is nowhere to legally use even half of the horsepower of that car.
Just imagine 566 roaring horses underfoot with plenty of room in back for dogs and guitars.  Seems like a no-brainier to me.

  1. That thing is a beast. I've been given a GM car by work (Vauxhall Insignia) and it has some guts but it's still only 160bhp. 566 is sick!

    You might also need to buy Mitchell a crash helmet to protect his head when you accelerate.
