Well, I Guess It’s Good News

The at-fault driver’s insurance company has admitted liability for all repairs, rear and front, for our Cadillac ATS. They have committed to sending a check for the estimate as provided by their adjuster. Apparently, the five-figure amount is not enough to get them to total the car.

While my wonderful wife and I really like the ATS, I know part of me was looking forward to buying something else. I guess neither of these cars will be parked in our garage:

Not that I needed any more proof, but the fact that buying another car had some appeal is yet another example of my automobile fanaticism. I REALLY understand how so many people end up owning multiple cars. For me, a car is not just something to transport me from A to B.


From Corvette Blogger comes this list of the top ten Premium Sporty Cars according to J.D. Power as ranked by APEAL: Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout. Their survey “questioned verified owners of new vehicles, in an attempt to determine the makes and models that are most satisfying in terms of their overall appeal. To be eligible to respond, owners must have had their cars for at least 90 days and share with J.D. Power their likes and dislikes about the vehicles. J.D. Power then took that information to come up with an overall appeal index score.” Without further ado:


10. 2021 Toyota GR Supra – 841
9. 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class – 845
8. 2021 BMW 2 Series – 853
7. 2021 Audi A5 – 861
6. 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class – 865
5. 2021 Porsche 718 – 880
4. 2021 BMW 4 Series – 892
3. 2021 Porsche 911 – 897
2. 2021 Lexus LC – 899
1. 2021 Chevrolet Corvette – 907


Sorry, European car snobs. (No, I’m not really sorry although tomorrow’s post will be in praise of a European car company and the identity of that company will shock regular Disaffected Musings readers.) Obviously, I am happy to see the Corvette at the top and the Lexus LC at number two.

All that being said, I still think it is highly unlikely that a C8 Corvette will find its way into our garage or wherever we may be storing cars. Variety is the spice of life.

    It’s a sickness with no known cure. You will ALWAYS find an “excuse” to buy another. Doesn’t matter if you have one for each day of the week, or one for each day of the month. As you have noted, the storage is the issue. My personal cure for the space issue was to buy property big enough to run a salvage yard.

    I’m part way there, even having culled the herd a bit in the last couple years. Sold 3 and only bought 2 replacements (insert eye rolling emoji here).

      Hysterical! The very high price of a garage at one of the garage complexes around here has kept me from purchasing such a space, for now…

      1. Luckily for me, I’ve been a country bumpkin for the majority of my life. Therefore it was easy for me to escape from the “burbs” and back out into the rural areas where my sort of sickness is tolerated, and costs far less to support. Granted, since I’ve been out in the “boonies” my herd HAS grown due to having space for them.

        Like I said, it’s a sickness. 🙂
