I am in the market for a new car and I am all over the place, but to keep a long story short I want this car because my father owned a 1980 Spider and it was his favorite car he has owned. Till this day he still talks about it. I am not sure if this is a good reason to want a car, but I want it because I want to have the same experience my father had. There are other cars that I may want more in the market but i want to feel what he felt. He talks about driving with the top down and zipping around corners. He tells me how much he loved the top and if the weather was bad he would reach behind him and pull it up in less than 2 seconds. The new Spider is a great looking car and I would absolutely enjoy driving it. But I need to think if I am buying the car for a the right reason.
