The Great Equalizer Road Test

"If you can drive it just as God [The Great Equalizer] intended it, it's yours"

With the accumulation of wealth comes the accumulation of material possessions. Unfortunately the wealth accumulators oftentimes are mismatched in their vehicle of choice. I propose that when the Car Dealership says "Let's see if you qualify" It would first involve the Credit Check, Sale and THEN [this is shere it gets bittersweet] The Road Test. If someone is going to buy a 4 wheel drive 10 cylinder Behemoth, then they better be able to drive it using all 4 wheels and all 10 cylinders and then some. If a sanctioned tester says "Tough cookies, pal" then another individual ON STANDBY who has made purchase of a lesser priced car but who has the ability to drive something bigger, better and faster gets himself a Behemoth and the Unworthy Wallet gets the Yugo. The Great Equalizer. Buwahahahaaaa.

       This has to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

       Cool! Where did you get your talking computer?

       I can dig it and would add that not only should you prove that you are competent enough to drive it, you should justify why you need it. Half the people I see hop out these things are barely 5 foot tall and alone.

       Big cars are cheaper than therapy, and probably safer than penile enlargement, especially for insecure women.

       I thought that this was baked by the car & horse racing series' where the winner can select anyoneelse's mount/car.

       My first job was a pizza delivery dude. I drove that car like it was a Porsche. I got paid hourly + commision based on number of deliveries. I drove very fast, but quite safely, and became one with that car. Too bad it was a Honda Civic (top speed 105 downhill using the force). If only I could have had the chance to merit an Austin Martin. Buwahahahaaaa.
