I think that a congratulations in store for my good friend Miguel Garcia Juan Hernandez Junior (a.k.a. Mike). Last night I got to see his latest acquisition, which surprised me greatly! He bought a 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit. I don’t think there has even been someone more deserving of a new car than Mike. Though I feel a deep connection with the 1858 Ford Tempo which seemed to be constructed by blind lawn gnomes, I really was blown away at the caliber of his new V-Dub! It has a significant amount of torque in the low RPMs, and excellent throttle response for a naturally-aspired 2.5 litre 5-cylinder. Keeping with tradition, of course, the car is a 5-speed manny tranny, which allows the driver to spiritedly accelerate all the way to the 6200 RPM redline. Besides the exceptionally nice performance of a “just off the lot” car, the interior is beautiful. It is quite the roomy coupe, with comfortable seats, a steering wheel that I believe can be adjusted in approximately 39 x π17 ways, and a superbly-crafted dash with nice ambient lighting.
Not only is the inside gorgeous, the exterior is this great silver colour (to which, of course, I am partial), and it has a stylish rear (tee hee):
Combine all those things with a kickin’ factory stereo and you have yourself a pretty awesome ride! Congratulations Mike! 😀
