There comes an inevitable moment in almost every man’s life.
You know that moment has arrived when the wife refuses to sit in your lime green, 2 door sports car that rides on 20 inch chrome wheels.
With a baby on the way, she politely requests (in a non-negotiable way) that it’s time to buy something “less Fast and Furious” and something “more Practical and Proper”.
Oh, and to make things just that little bit more interesting, she yells out, “Don’t go spendin’ more than 15 grand or it’s baked beans for dinner and Dutch ovens for dessert!”.
Not wanting to exacerbate the wife’s pre-natal murderous tendencies (and not being a huge fan of cooking appliances from Holland), you start scouring the car yards.
Ford XR6 turbo or Holden Commodore SS? Lots of grunt but your reactions aren’t what they used to be and you don’t want to chance it with the baby on the way.
