At Doncaster last week I was telling Jacqui and Marcea about my new and very lovely little car – I’ve just bought it and I said I’d post some pics up here so they could see….
(If you’re wondering about the weird number plate – I got some strange attack of paranoia about posting my acutal number plate on here – for anyone to see – who know’s what they’d do with it and all that – but anyway, I hid it :))
I’ve been planning on getting a new car for a while – I’ve loved my blue polo (which you can see just peeking out of the front of this picture) but it’s 9 years old now and getting it through it’s MOT this year cost me nearly what it’s worth so I reluctantly decided it was time to move on. I hate selling cars but this time it was easy as my brother’s girlfriend is taking the Polo so I can be happy it’s off to a good home.
Anyway, back to Milkshake…I'm loving that chrome! .
I’d pondered over what car to buy this time around and had decided that a Fiat 500 was for me. I love the retro styling and had read that they were roomy inside even though they are so small and dinky. So off I went to the Fiat garage – all set to buy one in Bossa Nova white. But my attempt at being all grown up and sensible was doomed before it even began. Got to the Garage, in I walked and there it was – so Pink and shiny. I spent about half an hour wandering around looking at all the other cards but all along I knew I was kidding myself – I wasn’t going to buy a white one, or a red one, or a black one, etc, etc – you know the rest. The minute I saw it I knew – I was going to have a bright, bubblegum pink, super girlie, retro cutie car.
It’s even pink inside – look! And there’s only 500 ever been made. I don’t know if that’s good because it’s rare or bad because they only think 500 people in the whole world would want one! And what’s worse – I’m one of them – lol!
I do feel I must stress – I’m not usually the kind of person to name a car. I love them and usually cry when I sell them – so I am soft, I admit that much. But no I don’t name them. But this car does strange things to you. I smile at people when they push in in front of me – I get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside everytime a 4 year old jumps up and down going ‘Look Daddy a pink car’ when I drive by – All in all it’s so pink it’s make me act all pink and girlie. It was just crying out to be christened and it’s just that colour – such a cool, strawberry ice cream pink. So Milkshake was born.
You’ll have to let me know what you think – what I know is I absolutely love it!!!!!!!
