Default Another new whip.

So I didn't get a job that I really wanted and I've been moping around all week trying to myself feel better. So I went and bought this. Mission accomplished, lol.

When the steering wheel was first put into use in automobiles, it was called the "whip". The whip is what you used to control the horses on a stagecoach, hence the analogy. Many years later, various hip hop artists noticed that the Mercedes-Benz logo resembled a steering wheel. They then proceeded to use the old term "whip" to describe any Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The term has now been generalized to classify any expensive automobile.

Yup. I guess I "could" have afforded a hemi, but I don't want to be a slave to my car. I really really like this car. The Saturn would probably put bus lengths on it but that doesn't really matter in day to day driving.

Garnet and Black accent stripes down the side with small bloc Cs at the tail end would be nice.

I wish I could just impulsively go buy the white Challenger I wanted. And now YOU have it. Lol. You absolutely will take me for a ride and/or let me drive it. To my credit, I wanted the Hemi though.

Still a damn good looking car and I know you're happy with it. Congrats.
