Get those juices flowing

This weekend was jammed packed. 

But the best part is what is happening today.

The Captain has jury duty.  Yep, you heard me.  Or, you read me.  To say that I am happy about this is such an understatement.  I  have had jury duty and served six times.  He has done it once.  And he wasn't even selected.  So, forgive me if I am enjoying this.  Even just a little.

In other news I did something I have wanted to do for a long time this weekend.  I test drove a mini cooper.  We are looking at getting a new car and this is the one I want.  The Captain isn't convinced, but since the new car will be mine, he doesn't get too much of a say.  Actually, I really did want his input, but he kept insisting that since it would be my car it didn't overly matter much to him. 

After test driving, I am thinking about building one from scratch.  This way I can get everything in the car that I want including the color.  The only problem is they have a new coupe and while I was pretty sure I wanted this one...

I am no longer certain.  After seeing this one I am a little conflicted. 

To be honest I have been driving a company vehicle for so long, I didn't care what it was.  But now with the idea of adding to our stable plus me getting to choose has encouraged me to look around and see what is out there.  I have had my eye on the mini for a while and think I would really love it. 

What about you guys?  What's your dream car and what do you think the car you currently drive says about you.  I'm thinking I would look pretty hot zipping around town in this little two-seater.  Swear to god, just looking at this picture is getting my blood pressure up.  Who knew a car could be such a turn on.  And sexy to boot!

Oh, I'm jealous! I've been wanting to test drive a Mini Cooper, but haven't done it yet. They look so cool! Bet it's easier to park than my minivan, too.

check the stats - my friend just traded in his Mini because it got bad gas mileage. (His had a turbo.)

I love muscle cars. I learned to drive on a '65 Impala. You know that car is STILL on the road today? My mom sold to a teen who gave the car a makeover.

I love the big gas guzzlers that sound like boats. 442. GTO. SuperSport. Barricuda.

My dream car is and always has been the Chevy Camaro.

But real life is not a dream, so the cars I own are good old reliable Fords. We bought a Dodge when we first got married. It was a lemon. Haven't touched Chrysler products since then. We then had a series of GM cars - more problems.

Then, we bought a tiny Ford Tempo. Had it for 14 years. Loved it so much, we went back for 3 Tauri and an Escort.

the car i currently own announces loud and clear that im poor and cheap, so cannot/willnot buy a new car. also, my car's name is ruby (after that demon bitch on supernatural) so we all know how trustworthy it is :)

BUT, if money were no object, i really think i'd be getting a ford escape hybrid. either green or black, with a moon roof. but thats me :)

Of course you know I like the red one.
My car says "This woman used to do anything to make her man happy including buying a car". I have learned alot about life and myself since then. Now I drive the car and enjoy life and the pensacola air through my hair.
