Seriously!!!??? – September 2008

Friday brought to a close one of the most stressful weeks I’ve had in some time. I want to make a point to say that it wasn’t the bad kind of stress, but rather the driving kind that causes you to do really good work. All of that to say I had decided early on in the afternoon that I would be making a stop off on the way home at our local grocery store for a take and bake pizza and our beverages of choice. I hit the door at as close to 5:00pm as possible (which was actually closer to 6:00pm). Anyhow, I got to the grocery with a goal of record time and I was successful. I was in and out in about five minutes.

Back in the parking lot, I am in route to little Annie (My red, 14 year old ford) when I am stopped in my tracks. Parked next to my car is THIS!!! I honestly laughed out loud.

Note to Reader: I do work for the largest after market automotive parts retailer, but by no means am I what you would call a “Car Girl”. Don‘t get me wrong, I like cars, and I know the basics… but… well… beyond basic stuff I rely on my husband, and friends, or I just leave it to the experts. All of this to say, even with the little car knowledge that I have, I am almost positive that there isn’t a practical reason to do this to your car.

Additional Note to Reader: Did you notice that this car is actually taller than the SUV beside it. HA!!!

Note to the owner of this car: Please pardon me for making fun of your ride, but SERIOUSLY!!!??? What on earth were you thinking!!!??? I bet you are paying at least twice what I am on your weekly gas bill? And don’t even try to say this is a “hybrid”. When they said “Go Green” this was not what they were talking about. Even if you are totally cool with, or can just deal with the color, what the heck possessed you to jack your pea green town car up onto monster truck tires? Thanks for the laugh!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!

Haha! Yeah, I've seen one just like this except it was neon pink. Really... who honestly thinks that is cool?

It's scary how some people prioritize.

I wonder what that person's bike would look like? Probably an average, custom built frame, with rims and giant tires, painted 'mountain dew green'

What! I was just thinking about painting the Honda a similar shade with a similar sparkle! Uh, now I'll just have to stick to black.

That's some serious lift. I bet the wheels are more expensive than the car :)

Amanda said...

Wow, that is one ugly car. (And funny how you pointed out it was taller than the SUV!) Here in Shreveport/Bossier, people jack their cars up like that and paint them to mimic giant ads, like a "Junior Mints" car or a "Spider Man" car. Just do a search on google images for "Skittles Car" or "McDonald's Car" and you'll see what I'm trying to describe.

I truly don't understand peoples fascination with cars.

But to each his/her own, right?

Dude....sometimes I wonder what the BFB would think about all that. She is pretty ghetto.

Note: I don't think that just because you have a car like that, you are ghetto, but my first impression reminds me of ghetto fabulous drug dealers. Sorry.

Anyway,have you seen the cars that have sponsors like Almond Joy and CocaCola? Oh....those are great! Maybe I'll copy cat and write a post about those fun things!

Love ya!
