Farmers Market Wheels
So what do you drive to the farmer's market on the weekend? Nearly every weekend in the summer, we head out to one or another of the local markets, usually we take my modest little Mazda hatchback. We parked one recent Sunday on the way to the vendors in the parking lot, passed this stunner. A BMW I-8, oh-my. I had not seen one in the flesh. It is quite stylish. A mixed hybrid electric and gas drive, rechargeable batteries. It is fast, fast, and fast. I looked the base price in the US is about $145,000. Your could buy six of my cars for that, you could buy four of J's Mercedes for that. If I had a $145,000 car, I don't think it would be my weekend market wagon. Kind of like finding a Rolls Royce in the drive through at McDonalds.
Would you drive this to the market?
