I am so infatuated with these little things!!! The other day, I saw one being transported on a car hauler, and I made Lowell turn around to go look at it. And today, one passed me on my way home from picking up the kids. I understand the controversy; I know the arguments about how passengers are not very protected in this little box... But they're just so darn cute!!!! :) My kids were a little upset when I expressed how much I like them because, they were quick to point out, they would not fit in this little car. That is a valid point, but I was thinking of this as my "mid-life crisis" car. I don't need a Ferrari or a Mustang convertible, I just want an adorable little smart car to zip around town.
Lowell and I have talked about driving a truck for our semi-retirement (get it - "semi" - We're lame, I know) I'm excited about getting to see the country and explore together while still making a little income. Won't that be fun.. Going from driving an 18 wheeler to this little car?? The best of both worlds! :)
