So... you're collecting model cars? Or is it like a car that a hamster can drive?

Cuz fucking awesome?

(Also I had previously paid for an Elite Dangerous paintjob similar to the one pictured, so it was important that I have a car that looked like my spaceship.)

(But mainly cuz awesome.)

BONUS CONTENT:

It was between this and the Nissan Juke. This looked and felt a lot cooler. Juke was more comfortable and had slicker options. However, the Nissan guys were total old-school smarmy car salesman dickholes (including "calling the manager over to see what we can do to get you in this car today), and the Mini lady was like, whatevs, yo, you want the car, here it is. We got a total of at least seven calls/text messages the following day from the Nissan guys. We got zero from the Mini lady. Easy choice.

Milker had a Mini! I think I drove it once. I was a passenger for dozens of trips.

It's a great car. Do you guys just shit on everything now, is that it? If that's it, then fine. I just want to be clear. Elite may not be getting a wipe, but this shithole probably will.

Congrats, Pinner. You made the right choice.

Did you hear about this service called TrueCar though? Maybe that could have been a way to buy it instead of haggling?

Epilogue:

This is the greatest car of all time. We definitely cannot afford it, but until it gets repo'd, oh man.

Is that the bow the car came with, or was it re-purposed from the packages Stoli used to deliver to you?
