Not a fair comparison since those were surely of the more valuable and desirable 2-door kind.
You are saying taxis are rare? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

DODGE on the back....HELLCAT wins nothing more to say:cool:
Dodge is essentially an updated mb πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

But in all seriousness the e55 is the sleeper until I step on it, I'm sure @Jimmy N. Respects that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚maybe not his neighbor though. And the charger is the one people gawk at, it got a lot of attention for a 4 door taxi, guess everyone wanted a ride 😜

Shouldn't be too hard to tell I miss the taxi ☹😫

Rare?!? Both our Challengers are one of one, so don't bring up rarity here.
On the other hand, between they two, they do have four doors.

Maybe so. But my Challenger is severely limited by its puny gas tank.
If it wasn't for that, I may just have driven over and sucked up a lot of your smoke, keeping it in the air filter, and made our air over here a bit nicer.

I wish we all were closer. It would be fun to meet up. Maybe someday? In the meantime, I will proudly keep my Taxi light on. πŸ˜›

Be careful what you wish for, Hellcatcfp. Very careful.

Plan on visiting New Mexico with the Motorhome at some point. Unfortunately, will have the Durango (or whatever my towed vehicle is at that time). Will definitely let you know when I might be in your neck of the woods. Would be great to meet you and shake your hand.

That'd be perfect, Hellcatcfp. It's been about 10 months since my last CA visit, and I still haven't fully recuperated.
Besides, your Durango will feel much more at home here, being somewhat close to Durango.

Meh. We can park the Durango in the trees somewhere, out of sight.
The motorhome is most likely a 2-door, maybe three, so that's acceptable.

I bought mine (at lease end) back in May or so. As noted elsewhere the BS-o-meter on line valuation tools are showing my value going up. Something like 55,000 or something now. A trip. Get what you like and enjoy it. I am not brand loyal - a "brand" doesn't mean shit. Individual car lines (and sub lines) inside the same manufacturer can be designed incredibly poorly or magnificently. And there is so much interlocking ownership and parts sharing (and third party third world parts suppliers) that branding is meaningless. If I like the car (or the bike) I get it if I want it.

It's all an illusion, like devotion to a particular sports team. They don't give a shit, and most aren't worthy of sitting down with for a dinner as individuals - they have for too long been treated as exceptions to the rules others have to live by. Such attitudes are dangerous, both to people and to society.

I agree with the first part.

Second part I would say applies more towards politicians, musicians and actors.

For me the sports team is more important than any individual player, I watch the team not any individual player, similarly I enjoy the hellcat not the dart, caravan, etc etc

I would say I'm a hardcore fan but I'm also not stuck in the imaginary world, players are no different than me or you, heck Donald Trump is no different than me or you. Their actions are their own and when I go to watch the game I go to watch them play not talk about they are pieces of sh*t outside the game.... most are lol.

I watch all the football games for my particular team, casual baseball/hockey/basketball in the regular season but will watch all playoff games.

As far as me selling the hellcat goes, it was moreso about the upgrade to the widebody as it has the ability for more traction. So getting the positive equity was a way for me to justify waiting a few months.

Yeah I'm going to get killed on a redeye lease but if it's around $1k I would consider. Definitely not going to happen in the 1st MY tho.

I feel like the 100 horsepower or so jump isn't going to kill me if I don't have it in a daily, plus keep my options open.

I got numbers back on a wb and it was roughly $850, would jump on it if I could shave off another $100-$150 bucks..... gonna need some kind of rebate to get there, not looking good at all.

This must be a taxi thing.
The "owner" don't even buy the car, then rents out seating space short term.

Hey we taxi owners don't baby our cars πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, we rent em and then rent them to others, think of us like an amusement park unlike you 2 door guys who insist on your car being a museum. 😝
