I started to wonder...

If I was the only waffler freak... going through the following mayhem:

1999 BMW 328i (on a three year lease)
1999 Suburban (also on a three year lease)
2000 E430 (on a 4 year lease which we finally freaking sold last week)
buying a 2002 A4 (and selling it after 11 months)
buying a 2003 G35 Coupe (and trading that after 10 months)
buying a CPOed 2002 Volvo S60 (going on 4 months)
buying a used 2003 MCS (going on 6 months)

all the while visit Auto Trader on a weekly basis to consider the following cars: used Miata, used Toyota Land Cruiser, another used A4 (just like what we sold above), a new S40 wagon, an R32, Z3's, Z4's, TT's, used Ford pickups, etc... AND visiting dealers to drive a Toureg, Land Rover, Cayenne, various E46's, 4-runners, Passat, and a GTI.

My point is all of this is... we are all wafflers, we are all freaks. And I am damn proud of it.

If www.carmudgeons.com doesn't work out we can always be www.waffles-r-us.com.

True. I almost hate to admit that my wife and I have owned no fewer than 13 cars in ~8.5 years of marriage.

This place is actually support group for people like us.

Define duration.



I've had my license for almost 9 years (9/95). Bought my first car in May 2000. Haven't sold it yet.

Call me what you want... but I don't waffle.
