re: What's the carmax buying experience like? - Tigris
[quote]You pay for convenience.[/quote] Exactly. I used them for the car I bought last year, but only because what I wanted wasn't anywhere within 500 miles. And they shipped it in for free. But I wouldn't recommend them if you care about getting the best price....

re: O-T History Buffs, What's Your Favorite WWI Battle And Why? - Tigris
Jutland was really interesting as the only major naval engagement. "There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today" Admiral Jellicoe And the pigheaded stupidity that was Gallipole. Dan Carlin's blog on WWI is the best blog I've ever come across, I've listened to it several t...

[quote]CarMax is the only way I would but a used car.[/quote] I used them for my last car because I had something specific in mind that wasn't available in my area, and they shipped it to me for free from one of their other lots. But I would have gotten more car for the money by buying from a pr...
