A sure sign of the demise of the American white middle-class.

I know the law. And I have spent my entire life in its flagrant disregard.

A mate got a model like the one in the clip, pretty solid car. Out-dated design, sure, but only women and small-dicked dudes care about stuff like that.

The music was mediocre at best.

Dont knock Volvos.

I have an old '97 wagon. Its all wheel drive, inline 5. Gets about 25 to the gallon. I Let my freind borrow it.

He returned it with the oil light on. He told me the light came on about half way back from his trip...Which was around 600 miles. It was very late at night. He stopped and checked it out, no obvious problem.

So I went to check it out and change the oil the next morning, only there wasnt any oil in it at all. Bone fucking dry. He drove it for well over 200 miles with NO OIL. I filled it back up, and the oil light went off. Easiest oil change ever.

That was about six months ago, and its been running fine ever since.
