A Venn diagram: my next car

The problem with Corvettes is, once you buy one, you become a Corvette Owner.  A lot of people say the same about BMWs, but I like the cars so much I'm willing to let people assume I'm a jackass and learn otherwise later.

But seriously, the candidates for the bullseye position are:  (a) used Hyundai Genesis Coupe, or (b) rather-more-used Infiniti G35.

There are, of course, other circles not pictured:  Reliability, Wife Acceptance Factor, etc.


  1. It turns into a sort of N-dimensional Car-Space when you start adding in availability, cost of ownership and other factors. My last vehicle acquisition added up exactly one factor: what they had the keys to on hand when I started work. And it's fine. Didn't take a Cray 1 to solve it, either.

  2. Buying a car is a bitter pill. Will it serve faithfully? Or reenact the final scene of the Blues Brothers?

    Somebody buying a car for you is much easier. You drive what they want you to drive. It's sort of like renting wheels on a business trip: it's cheap to the payer, but it's free to you.

  3. So, what car did you get? I think either of the two would be a good choice. I think it would all come down to whether or not they are reliable and functional to use, which are factors you should also put in the diagram.

  4. Cars you’d enjoy driving, cars you wouldn’t mind being seen driving, and the cars that you can afford. Nice! You really put in a lot of effort in considering these things, huh! Well, it’s a brilliant idea because this will truly help you determine what car should you really purchase.
