Re: SVX in Nice Price or Crack Pipe (Jalopnik.com)

What was that? Was that composed by a crack addled junkie in South Central L.A?

I am startled by the tone, perplexed by the grammar, disgusted at the spelling and disappointed it was published.

The author clearly does not know much about cars, journalism or the perils of crack.

I would say crack pipe especially if they knew about how the sale went down.

Re: SVX in Nice Price or Crack Pipe (Jalopnik.com)

I hope the engine troubles are behind it, especially for the price being asked.

I couldn't friggin' believe someone said that an impreza is a better car, but overall, the un-initiated to the SVX had a pretty positive outlook on it, which is good.

Re: SVX in Nice Price or Crack Pipe (Jalopnik.com)

That was a great car. It was almost mine. I needed a car now and that car had an issue that I could not handle. People bug me when the write articles like that condemning something they no little about. They think it is funny I guess.
