I spotted the “Ford Tempo General Lee” in my neighborhood this past weekend. Seriously. Not only could this piece not outrun Boss Hog’s Cadillac, I’m pretty sure it couldn’t outrun Boss Hog on foot. I suspect the “01” means “on a scale of 01 to 100.” Or maybe, “this car starts shimmying at 01 miles per hour.” Or maybe “this car is unsafe at anything over 01 MPH.” Or maybe even, “I don’t even got 01 hubcap.” Who knows, maybe it’s the selling price.
At what point does a trend go from cool to stupid? Right before this, I think. I have literally seen 4×4 pickups with less clearance than this POS. I have never seen $3,000 worth of wheels and tires on a $500 car before. I laughed so hard when we saw this thing parked at Burger King that I almost caused us to have a wreck in the intersection.
