I have a new favorite car. (now, those of you out there who do not agree with my love of boxy, big, beastly cars, you might want to stop reading....)
I was driving around today running some errands and across the street from my favorite Starbucks was this fantastic looking orange car! I had never seen its like before. After much straining to see what it was, my sister and I gave up trying to figure it out and left for another stop on our list. About a hour later we come out to our car and a couple spaces away is the very same orange beast of a vehicle.
A DODGE NITRO.
Now, what I currently drive is a 1999 Dodge Durango (was a family car, family got too big, I got a license and now it's "my" car....yeah, you know how that goes. Not really mine, but I like to think it is...) Cars that I currently love are the Scion xB and maybe a Honda Element. (Although I have a strange attraction to Dodge Chargers-also beastly-and at the opposite end of the spectrum, I would definitely take a Viper if one was offered to me)
I just LOVE big, wide, rectangular, box-like cars. I don't really know why, I just know that I do. (Although, I have had my friends threaten to never drive with me again if I get something that large and boxilicious...thankfully I am not getting one anytime soon) I just don't like driving in smaller cars, I feel all claustrophobic inside of them, which might have stemmed from the fact that I learned how to drive on my family's Suburban (which is kind of like driving a military vehicle). I love "my" (again, loose usage) green Durango, with Hungarian flag bumper sticker, coconut bay air freshener, and Calico Jack pirate flag in the window. (and if you care, his name is Tortuga. Originally named Anna-something-something-oo -a Greek name- by my mom, meaning something about being filled. Well, it was filled and it needed a rename. And now its name is Turtle en espanol. We name everything in my family...)
Somehow that monster becomes me...
I think I am doomed forever to drive some massive SUV; I am a pretty small person, but there is just something about me that doesn't fit in anything less that huge.
But, back to my Nitro. The thing is AWESOME. But like I said, not getting any other car anytime in my near future....I don't exactly have $22,335 to drop anyway. I just thought I'd share. If anyone wants to buy me one that'd be great!
