So long, Tactical Car

Me: I’m selling my favorite thing today.
Father in law: Your kids?
Me: No, my car.

I no longer need Tactical Car, which I love. The objective realization that it took up garage space I needed, I paid insurance for a car I drove twice a week, and a few other factors led me to decide to sell it. And so, I will turn over the keys to the new owner tomorrow. Here it is with the vehicle I now mostly drive reflecting off of its awesome blackness:

Suck exhaust note, hippie.

Suck exhaust note, hippie.

I’ll miss zero to sixty in five seconds, how awesome everything from This Darkened Heart to Jessie’s Girl sounds through the Bose sound system, the way it accelerated like you were on a horse that just got slapped hard in the ass, and taking turns at high speed.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, we need some high speed moments alone.

    I’m sorry, it’s like losing a good motorcycle.

  2. Kevin Baker Says:

    Ah, damn. I’m sorry, man.

  3. Gmac Says:

    Reality, truly it does bite.
    Fun while it lasted though, eh?

  4. Ohio Shawn Says:

    Sorry man, but on the upside….wait….nope….can’t come up with anything.

  5. Robert Says:

    I feel your pain. Selling my STI hurt really bad.

    Hmm. I got my German car in black because it was the right car for the right price, but I never considered the tacticool elements. Given that I have already added mounts (for my tacticool phone) I might have to steal the term.

    The IFAK in the trunk and glock under the seat don’t hurt with the moniker either.

    I can understand your pain. The wife has a G37x. It really is a fun little car. Tromp the pedal and you’re at ludicrous speed in nothing flat.

  8. Phelps Says:

    And because Audi is very much about hidey holes, the glock isn’t just banging around in the power seat mechanics. Germans over japs, woo!!!

    Well, we just hit the Cleveland Auto Show today, and after taking a look at all the latest and greatest the Auto World is willing to sell us in our neck of the woods, the wife and I came to the same conclusion: Most of what’s out there sucks.

    Oh, well, at least you’ll be able to buy a couple of bricks of .22LR now.

    If you can find any.

    Note to narcissistic, overindulged modern America.

    This is what grownups do when the need arises. You had best take it to heart. You may well get your chance at the same choices, all to soon.

    I love nice cars – but also force myself to realize that it simply a mode of transportation.

    I do look forward to the day I’m done raising kids – I’ll be shopping for something convertible and fun.

    I feel you. I flirted with the idea of selling my toy since I drive the truck most days. In the end I decided I’m so close to paying it off, I’m just going to clear the loan, slap liability only on it and keep it.

  13. Mu Says:

    get yourself one of these instead

  14. Laughingdog Says:

    Yeah, that thing did ride pretty well. Shame you had to ditch it.

  15. NotClauswitz Says:

    A truck is more of a “Dad” vehicle. đŸ˜‰

  16. Will Says:

    Oh, boy. The number of times I’ve heard the story of someone who decided to take just one more ride before the buyer shows up…

  17. breda Says:

    I hope you get a speeding ticket.

    Goodbye, tactical car.
