Have you cheated on your P-car?

Well I got a guest invite to drive a 2020 Huracan EVO so I took the wife (we both got a car to drive), and all I can say is wow!

In sport mode itís like an F1 car (didnít want to try race on the backroads). The interior, performance and looks were unreal; just like the price.

I really liked it (VP price aside), drove home in the PTT and felt like I cheated

Next one I want to try is the 458 (one of my favourite looking cars), and I will assume the tranny is just as fun.

Anyone else?

Not really. Two cars. The 911 for dates, the other car for groceries. No jealousy.

I have only cheated with a ‘65 VW. I do keep going back, so that should be present tense.
I did flirt briefly with a BMW but it was only a fling. My head was turned by functioning AC and heated seats.
But I know true love requires sacrifice of things like comfort, and gettin a rough pounding on a high speed bad back road is love returned. It’s all worth it to smell the sweet perfume of hot oil wafting through the heater vents and the gentle ticking of her engine as it cools after a hard romp.

Since it is German engineered and not all Italian it would be interesting to see if the maintenance of a Lambo is anything as expensive as a Ferrari. I have driven other Porsches, and my wife's car is a Macan. Even though my name is on the title to the Macan, I still think of it as my wife's car. It is much like driving a 911, for normal traffic. It is not a track car for sure.

agreed that the 458 is one of the most gorgeous modern cars.


The 930 and I are in an open relationship, though I don't get as many opportunities to whore around as I would like.

My 911 knows I might drive other cars, but I ALWAYS come back to my 911 and fall in love again.

My (ex) Corolla got rear ended by a traffic light pole.

Now that's cheating.

It was three Corollas ago, so no pic's.

An ex, lets just call her Lisa for the sake of the conversation, thought she knew everything. Including driving. She ran a light that had just turned red, and claimed the other car took off early, it clipped her and she went backwards into the pole in the traffic island. No money from her of course - she was a student. And the car couldn't be fixed.

Actually... Another Corolla got rear ended too. This time it was parked. Off street at the time and in the middle of the night.. A drunk teen driver was doing drifties in the sand on the street that had be deposited there by a storm. Again no money and beyond repair.
