The car that blogging bought

Congratulation to Rick who has just bought a car with his blogging earnings - he’s called it ‘the car that blogging bought. Nice one Rick – that’s a sexy looking car! We’re looking at a Subaru too – but probably more of a family wagon :-)

  1. Buy a Saab! Soooo much more fun and huge depreciation from new means you can get a great 2nd hand 9-3 or 9-5 for a sensational price. If you test drive one, you’ll buy it. Most do.

    Heh, maybe I should rename my blog to “The car that brought me to blogging”. ;)

    But Trollhatten is right, if you’re looking at a Subaru, may as well look at the Subaru derived Saab 9-3. That is, if they’re available down under.

  3. The 9-3 isn’t the WRX-derived Saab. That’d be the 9-2x and no, it’s not available here in Oz. It’s a North American thing only.

    The 9-3 is a sedan. Comfortable like a leather lounge and goes like the clappers! You can also get a 2002 or earlier 9-3, which is a hatch (3 door or 5 door). Heaps of load space and heaps of turbocharged fun. That’s what I’ve got, a ’99 model 9-3 Viggen.

    Zoom Zoom!

  4. A family wagon? Should a congratulations be in order?

  5. Darren Rowse says:

    no no – just planning ahead.

  6. If you are a looking for a family wagon, best suited for Australia, you should definitely go and consider an Audi!
    Audi calles the family cars “Avant”, because ‘beautiful estate cars are called Avant’. Maybe with the quattro, four-wheel transmission option.
    You could go for an Audi A4 or even an Audi A6. Both are available in Australia.
    Here is a link for more information: http://www.audi.com.au.

    Audi lately scored an award as “must have cars” in Australia:

    nice one Christian – although it’s probably a bit out of the price range we were looking at.

    We were thinking of an Outback…maybe a Liberty wagon if we could stretch it up that far. Mortgage and renovations are taking everything else at this point.

  8. Andre Roodt says:

    I’d go for the Forrester XT. You get the performance of a WRX and the practicality of an Outback. Pity the Forrester STI is only available in Japan.

  9. Dr. Byte says:

    Sweet!

    It sure gives you something to aspire too.

  10. Dave says:

    I can recommend subaru (not that I’m biased or anything), great handling cars, even in basic (none-turbo) spec.

    Great to see people earning enough from blogging to buy the things they desire, cars/houses/Apple Macs etc.

    Make hay while the sun shines, so to speak.

  11. JErm says:

    Woah that’s sweet!! I’m not quite there yet, but I did get me an iBook last month! :)

    Finally got a piece of the pie =D Gimme some

  13. Well, Darren, according to your FAQs a child is on its way in June. If my math serves me correctly that would mean at the time of my previous comment a congratulations was in order.

    Congratulations and on behalf of all fathers – Good Luck!

  14. Darren Rowse says:

    hehe – yes you were on the money. Only person to pick it up :-)

    Well done Scott

  1. [...] Well, my buddy Rick Blythe has just bought himself a car with his blogging earnings, see The car that blogging bought. His site was quickly linked to from Darren Rowse’s site, of course, and that’s brought Rick a lot of congratulatory traffic. I just hope he’s put aside enough money to cover the taxes he’ll have due on his earnings, which are sure to increase after all this fuss! (See Rick’s posting How to Grow the Business for a list of the blogs and sites he runs. Remember what I said recently about traffic volume being the key to making a fortune?) [...]
