Decision-Making Through Peer Pressure
Our good friend, world traveller, O.G. Hoon, occasional AtomicToasters contributor (and one hell of an awesome person) Number_Six is currently going through a mid-life crisis purchasing dilemma when it comes to (finally) replacing his hateful little econobox with a big-boy car. He’s narrowed it down to two options, and now his only real dilemma is that he’s refusing to listen to me.
In fairness, they’re both excellent choices. One, simply put, is much more betterer. He’s narrowed it down to a 2005 Mazda RX-8 with very low kilometres… or a 2004 Pontiac GTO, also with very low kilometres, with the smaller 5.7L V8.
Clearly, we, as responsible Hoons, have an obligation to help poor Number_Six in his decision making process, and explain to him, firmly but gently, why the only real choice is the GTO. Aussie Awesomeness or just another Japanese compromise? I think it’s an easy choice. But our commenters are far more eloquent than I. So help our fellow Hoon make the one right decision, and spare him another few years of regret!
