2015 Acura TLX 3.5L
Soichiro Honda (1906-1991) was an automotive genius. In 1958, he created the Honda Supercub, about the least motorcycle you can buy, but which is still produced in many countries. There have been over 60 million Supercubs produced, making it the best-selling vehicle ever produced. His Honda Civic and Accord led the Japanese charge in the 1970s to overturn the Big Four’s control of the American auto market. The company he created, Honda Motor Co.

Since then, it’s become an increasingly upmarket vehicle, probably because Trotskyites have always been a little hazy about financial matters, so they’re easier to fleece.

2014 Buick Encore AWD
Driving a Buick says something about you. It says that you’re the sort of person who can’t afford a Cadillac, but not the sort of dirty, poor person who drives a Chevrolet. Buick is the brand for the middle class. While Chevrolet is the brand for the factory worker, and Cadillac is the brand for the factory owner, Buick is the brand for the senior software developer in the factory’s IT Department.

Today, I went to Petco Park–a very, very nice ballpark, by the way–to watch the Dodgers play the Padres. Of course, I took a camera along to record some of the action. All of the pictures are clickable, so you can see the high-res versions.
There are some reasons why buying a car at CarMax kind of sucks. They don’t negotiate prices. The prices they don’t negotiate are too high. But there is one reason why CarMax rules: The CarMax Warranty. If you never need it, it might be pricey. If you do need it, it will save your bacon. Like it did mine.
