Mid Week Match-Up: Pi Day Special

Happy Pi Day to all math nerds out on the web. That's affirmative, today is Pi Day -- 3.14 -- a nicely rounded version of the irrational number that was closely approximated with polygons by the Greek mathematician Archimedes around 250 BC. We are going to celebrate Pi Day with a special edition of the Mid Week Match-Up...where we look for the best car for a nerd.

I am going to suggest this 1985 Toyota Corolla GT-S Hachi-Roku (AE86) because I know a few nerds and a few drifters and there is a surprising crossover in what they like. Tip from FuelTruck.

See a better car for a nerd? Comments below.  HAPPY Pi DAY!


  1. Don't have a life? Fix that by buying a Wheego Life! It looks like a car that would get people constantly asking you what on earth it is.

    1. Chinese Smart clone with the power of electrons...

    2. It's the little car made out of clay!

      Oh, wait, that's the Adobe.

    3. Wheego Life -- The number one car choice for urologists.

  2. More generally, cars for nerds...
    the Honda Insight?
    any kit-car or home-brew electric conversion?
    any wagon (I kid, I kid!)?
    a Citroen DS of some sort (all sorts of early techy goodness)?

  3. What does Stan drive again? *ducks for cover*

  4. PS
    Einstein's birthday, PIE day, and Steven Hawkins
