So we’re talking cars…

My youngest daughter, Mel, turns 16 in a few months so she is thinking about a car. Last night, she dragged me out to see what she said would be perfect…

Land Rover

Land Rover

I checked it out. 1988 right-hand drive British Land Rover. 4-cyl diesel with 36,000 miles. They want $12,000. I admit, it would be a cool ride. But diesel? British? The only thing this has going for it is it is a British car without Lucas ignition. And $12,000 is a lot of money for a first car that is fundamentally doomed. Hmmm.
