Isn't it too cute for words? I know it's not a 'vette. I don't want to spend what a vette would cost though owning a 'vette would have been at one time something I would have appreciated.
These little cars are no longer manufactured. I think the last year for them was either 2008 or 2009.
To buy one now, it will have to be used and I have found a very lightly used one. Bright red roadster, convertible and a 5 speed and how could this not be a fun little ride?
I'm going to go drive it tomorrow and will then decide if it's what I want. The husband had no problem with me getting it. I hesitate. Is this what happens when you are having a mid life crisis? I don't feel as though I'm having any kind of crisis, mid life or otherwise. I've always liked speedy vehicles but have restrained myself from having some thing that was this impractical. I think it might be time for me to be a little impractical. No children at home, no bills and some money in the bank and why not? I can't really think of a lot of reasons to NOT buy it and enjoy for as long as I want. I can always get rid of it when it doesn't suit me any longer.
I also think of the 260.00 per month times the past 24 months that I no longer spend on cigarettes. I know it doesn't cover the cost of the little red car but in a few years more it might get close. I'm trying to justify buying this.
Tonight I'm a little excited, a little hesitant and not sure at all what I will decide tomorrow. Here's hoping she still has it for sale!
It looks as though my bike riding may be halted for the next few days. A cold front is headed this way and we may even get frost! Imagine that. A white coating on the roof tops and we can all imagine what a snow fall would be like.
Next week we should be back to normal weather and I'll be riding to make up for lost time. I rode the new bike for a while this afternoon. At first I hated it. It is so different from the beach cruiser and thinking there was something wrong with it, I talked the husband into letting me take his new bike for a spin. I hated his even more so I'm guessing it's going to be a matter of getting used to a different ride.
I'm becoming more safety conscious with this bike stuff. Today I added a rear red light that strobes and a new headlight. I like to ride the neighborhood at night and though we have streetlights, I'm always a bit nervous when a car approaches. I now blink a bright red and have a halogen headlight. That should be enough for the touring around here.
