    In threads like this, I always think what Cage would've done.

    I suspect a Ford or Buick.

    Hildegard von Bingen would drive a minivan. She had all those sisters to drive around. But it would be equipped with a plow in the front to push away all those cackling priests.

    I wish I had a Hyundai Sonata. Getting a D segment car in some countries are luxury. Lol.

    Yep. And with that stuffed doll of her by Oskar Kokoschka in the passenger seat so she could drive in the HOV lane.

    A 2009 Hyundai Sonata would be more than enough for me. The price of it in Turkey is 32-33 times more than a monthly minumum wage. It's a 9 year old Hyundai Sonata. That really sucks. And the real problem is not buying it but being able to afford to put gasoline into it since the car has a minumum 2.0 litres engine. Gasoline is very expensive here.

    I am thinking of buying 2005 Hyundai Elantra. Its price is around 20 times of monthly minumum wage.

    As for the new 2018 Hyundai Elantra, its price starts with 63 times of monthly minumum wage. It is the starting price.

    For composers with a small output (like Rott) the Isetta Kleinwagen was ideal. Rott’s model had a special chamber for dynamite in case he should come across Brahms thumbing a ride. But Brahms had the dynamite idea too, and the rest is history.
