Anybody remember those wacky pine-tree shaped “air fresheners” from the 70s? My parents hung them in the car, and man did they stink. Oh they did what they were intended to do– mask the smell of 6 stinky teenagers crammed into a summer of ’76 station wagon. The “pine” scent wasn’t too bad (the scent […]

The air has a slight nip in it today. The skies are very gloomy with a thickness that resembles autumn skies. Only a few more weeks of summer and then back to cooler weather for us! I was SO looking forward to it, because the summer has been super hot and humid. And the spring […]

I STILL Can’t Decide on a Car!

February 6, 2011


Well, we are FINALLY crawling our way toward THINKING about a decision to get a new car. In case you didn’t know, we have an ailing Dodge Caravan minivan. I loved that van, but it was used as a postal vehicle for a while (Hubs is a rural carrier, and up until a few months […]

I’m not in any position to get a new car (yet). But someday, hopefully later this year, I hope to get one. We are down to one vehicle right now, and that serves part-time as a postal vehicle when my husband is called to deliver mail. Needless to say, my van is now pretty beat […]

Well, we busted our car’s taillight again. Hee hee, oops. We had a problem with the brakes, and fixed them without any problems… but in our rush to get the job done, we forgot to pump the brake fluid through the system. So when we backed out of the garage to park the van, it […]

Stupid Eco Vehicles

May 18, 2009


No, no, no. Hey, I love the Eco/Hybrid/Futuristic car/bike/motorbike/jet just as much as anyone else, but… don’t these Europeans realize that people have FAMILIES?! I saw a short video on Flixxy called Test Driving an EcoMobile (Flixxy won’t allow me to embed their videos, so you have to go to the website to see it). […]

These clips made me cringe. Um, YEAH. Having an expensive car doesn’t necessarily mean that a person can drive. Ow!

I must be on a vehicle fixation or something. I found this video and LOVED it! It’s a Renault “car ballet” (here in my archives I also posted a stunning car ballet by Hyundai). This one is a little different. This one crashes cars ON PURPOSE. While playing classical music. With elegance. LOL. PUB RENAULT […]

Dear Dodge Minivan Manufacturers

January 17, 2009


Dear Dodge Minivan Manufacturers, I’ve been a loyal Dodge Grand Caravan owner for almost two decades. I bought my first one way back in 1992, back when minivans where just starting to come into popularity. I had to give up my beloved Chevrolet Nova because I couldn’t squeeze three infants with their mammoth car seats […]

Ow ow ow ow. I am amazed the driver survived this crash. WOW. This is just amazing. It’s a short video. Watch how this Porsche 911 GT1 flips up and over. This was during the Petit Le Mans race. Can you see how the Porsche was too close to the car in front of it? […]
