THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Many men are "into cars." I mean they know and love everything about cars!

I have never been one of those men.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I appreciate having a good car. I see their beauty and know their value.

I'm just don't "lose it" every time somebody drives by in a Mercedes or a Jaguar convertible.

Yesterday I was strolling around the BMW showroom waiting for my car to be serviced.

As I stood looking at all the beauties on the showroom floor, salespersons would walk by and ask about my interest. I would just smile and tell them I was passing time while I waited for my car.

As I stood by one of the cars labeled the ultimate driving machine I just happened to glance at the sticker on the window. I jumped back almost loosing my balance and struggled to catch my breath. In my mind I was screaming: "I didn't touch it, I didn't touch it. I didn't sneeze on it. I didn't even breath on it. Honest, I didn't. You have got to believe me."

A sales lady walked by and smiled. She didn't say anything but it looked like she was wondering, "Are you alright?"

The sticker price for this ultimate driving machine was $139,000 and some cents. I thought to myself that anybody buying it will have lost all sense.

My idea of the ultimate driving machine is a car that runs and has a good personality, a happy car.

I liked this! Two things make for a happy car: 1) It runs 2) The people inside appreciate it. Good post.

I'm posting a link on my blog to your review of Roaring Lions. Thanks.

Clif,

I can never understand why some people will pay so much when they can be content with something else and perhaps use that extra money if they can afford it to bless someone with it.

My car never fails to run and make adults and kids smile it is a bright yellow bug and the plate says SLUGBUG....I love to see kids faces when they see it! It is a very happy car.

I'm so glad to have finally out-grown my fascination w/ "glam" wheels.
These days, I'm comfortabe climbing behind the wheel of something safe and secure.... happy when I arrive alive!
