Car prices are a curious thing these days, and so are people Immortal Love by Elon Musk. We may live in a somewhat chaotic world, but some things remain constant. One of those constants is that the most beautiful Pontiac Sunbird convertible on earth costs less than this autographed 8×10 photo of Elon Musk wearing a spacesuit I found on eBay.
The long-dead General Motors J-Body really isn’t worth remembering, but this just might be the best example. For sale in my home state of New Jersey is this MINTY 1989 Pontiac Sunbird GT Convertible. It could very well be the prettiest in all the land, but it still only costs $5,495. That’s about $1,000 less than this autographed 8×10 photo of Elon Musk in a spacesuit I found on eBay.
Sure, it has the structural rigidity of a chocolate eclair and looks like only whoever ran GM could love at the time, but it’s as clean as it gets. After 33 years and 134,000 miles there is hardly a scratch on her. The same can’t be said for this autographed 8×10 photo of Elon Musk in a spacesuit I found on eBay. It’s not 33 years old and won’t get you from point A to point B with the same efficiency.
That said, the Sunbird does not come with a protective pouch to protect it from the elements. But then again, this autographed 8×10 photo of Elon Musk in a spacesuit I found on eBay doesn’t have turbo or pop-up headlights.
My mother had a Sunbird in the early 90s before I was born. The power steering failed and the car was in such bad shape that when my father took it in for service, the mechanic approached him for letting his wife drive in such a piece of shit. Who knows, my mother would never have gotten rid of her SunbirdI may not be here today to write a blog about how the most beautiful Pontiac Sunbird Convertible on Earth costs less than an autographed 8×10 photo of Elon Musk in a spacesuit I found on eBay.
