I think I’ve hit a point in my life that I need to start restoring a car.  On the hunt for something out of the ordinary.  Some sort of wagon I think. 🤔

I once asked my old man if he had the chance to restore something he wanted (because he is a workaholic and always wrenching on something), and he told me he would build an old Chevy II. I am a big fan of the coupe but as it turns out, it was also available in a wagon. How does this suit your eye @Shankster?

I have had that same itch.... I think it would be a '64 Rambler for some reason.... I need to make lots of room in the garage before getting started on the hunt.

My dad traded in a beat up '56 Pontiac for a '64 Rambler American when I was in high school.  Not my favorite car.  In 1969, the year I graduated college and left home, he traded it in for a Pontiac Grand Prix  Nice car.

With the Rambler, I fondly remember the 3 on the tree and the vacuum driven wipers that would slow waaaay down when at idle and speed up when rpm's increased!  There were probably many issues I wasn't fond of that time has glossed over!

I’d do an old Willys, but I want a cruiser.  My grandpa worked for Buick for 35 years.  Had a hand on mostly everything from 50-85.  A little sentimental value.  I’d like a Wildcat, because he was the foreman for that run of cars, touched them all from what he said.

Well it’s tough to beat a backstory and connection like that!

Looking forward to tonight. My daughter’s college football team will be playing on ESPN. Nice to see smaller colleges getting some air time.

that looks like a hearse. You need something a bit more fun. But on the other hand paint some flames on it and it could look cool.

SiriusXM.... what are your experiences with it and negotiating subscription price?

So our 2018 Expedition MAX came with SXM radio.  We liked it during our travel to AZ last year so I read a handful of the "tips and tricks" to negotiating a renewal price.  I was able to get a 1 year subscription for $70 including the "artists royalties" baloney.  Tried the recommended tell them you don't want to pay for that approach and they wouldn't budge.  

Quite frankly, I don't like going through this routine of negotiating and I can afford full price... but I'm cheap and it grinds me to know others are able to get the same product at discounted pricing.  So, with my subscription ending soon and not wanting to pay the $15.99/mo rate, here I go.  

I'm thinking my tactic is to tell them I'll renew for another year if they will give me the same price as the current subscription. Also, I don't want to deal with this bullshit more than annually... I'd pay for a 3 year contract if they offered that just to forget about it.

Sirius/XM came with my 2014 Dodge.  I renewed because there aren't any good radio stations around here anymore, and its great for trips.  When we bought my wife's 2017 car, I added her car to my package.  Don't have a clue what it costs anymore.  I just know that I will always have it.

Same here. I can't remember the last time I turned the radio to an am/fm station. We travel (drive) a lot so the convenience of having the same favorite radio stations for a long trip is worth the money. FYI I pay quarterly and even though those payments annualized = yearly charge it's a little less painful.

Do you have a online ID with them?  If so you can now go online and manage your account.  I have the $60 per year deal with them now but I too have to pay the extra that you mentioned.  It does run about $70 when all is included.  Just have your phone calendar remind you when it is coming due and you can go online and renew at the low price again.  

I hated having to call them every year to negotiate a new "deal".  Give it a try.
