Along with some new wheels, of course?

Walk you lazy sods! I have managed to get to 38 years old with a family and no car and still get around and yes I know America is bigger than a wizards sleeve, I was pertaining to the Brits. I'm sure both Right Track and Urban don't drive either.

It's really essential that I drive. I stay 10miles or so from the nearest town, so I need it to get to work and such. Although I get the bus most days. Or stay at my sisters and walk 30mins to work instead .

This is why I miss the subway! You never know what's going to happen when a bunch of strangers end up crammed together like that. I always loved taking the subway when I lived in Boston and Berlin. Sadly, I never saw any pole dancers in the subway. And no disco balls either!

Charming, noise! Reminds me of Berlin street cars. We used to have a street car in the city where I live in Iowa, but it was dismantled years ago as cars took over.

There are usually quite a few of them on the roads there. I like to wave to other polo drivers when I see them .. They sometimes look puzzled when I do. They don't know that they too are members of the yellow polo club.
Ha ha! I always get excited when I see someone in the same car, too! Your yellow volkswagon reminds me that when I was 18 with my parents in Berlin, they bought an old, used, orange Volkswagon. I was humiliated because I was then so fashion-conscious, and I refused to drive it. Now I'd think, "Yeay! A bright orange Volkswagen! Can you get any safer than that?"

I now drive a deep red 2009 Honda Civic, which replaces an old Honda Accord from the 1990s. Here it is:


I like the Civic a lot. I didn't *want* to buy a new car, but with a young child I had several reasons for purchasing one. Winters here are awfully cold for walking. Public transport always requires at least a 15 minute walk to get to the bus. Finally, I wanted a new car with improved air bags, side curtains, and overall safety so my child would hopefully be safer.

Which reminds me: children up through several years of age should stay in rear-racing childseats, not just for the first year or so. If you have kids, look this up!!

Walking is body therapy to me and besides there are downsides if I drove. I may be picked up for being over the limit the following day and I would spend a ridiculous amount on a stereo system in it! I have a friend who just paid £140 just for a cable to the sub in the boot and no doubt I would do the same.

I'm still driving this thing:


Although at the moment it looks about 90 percent more dirty. No matter how much I wash it, the elements always win. Stupid...black car.
