What Kind of Car Do You Drive?

Me? I drive a 2000 Escort ZX2, piece of crap that it is. The car became a piece of shit about seven years ago and I've been driving it for, oh I dunno, seven fucking years.

But Mads though, she's ridin' in style in her Pampers Cruisers 3.76 Turbo.

Looks like she's just sitting in it, right? Well she is. It doesn't go unless the Mommy engine is behind it. Duh.

The Mady cruiser is the coolest ride in town, and is totally unaffected by rising gas prices. I wish I had one.

* I've been driving the same car since I was 16. I've put over 100,000 miles on it myself (it already had 50,000), and it's made trips to Florida, a couple rides to NC and back, and numerous off-roading experiences when I was in high school. We even drove through three towns on railroad tracks. We would have stopped sooner, but do you know how hard it is to find a place to turn around on railroad tracks? (Don't worry, no trains on them for years). Anyways, it's finally starting to sputter going up hill, so I'm hoping it will just die a nice, quiet death so I can put it where it belongs... a junk-yard. It's been good to me, but it's time to let go.

These days, there's only two kinds of car that matter: paid for or not paid for. From the sounds of things, you and Mady are both winners in that department.

You pose a very valid arguement. Thanks for the perspective shift, I guess I really needed that.

I love my car. :)

Aimee, treasure what you have, no matter how old it gets... besides it seems like you have great memories about the car... by the way I just want to let you know that you are great mother. I am glad that you are our granddaughter's mom... you keep her pretty busy, or is the other way around? You have a great imagination to keep Mady nicely entertain...

We have a 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette. We also have a 2000 Chyrsler Cirrus but it died...a horrible death. It sits in our driveway all sad that it's dead. Looking for a new car now (new to us) but I am terrified of yet another car payment =/
