Test Driving

There is a hot little Mazda Miata at a used car dealership down the street from my house. Today, after renting a City Car Share vehicle, I decided to take the sexy little Miata for a spin. It was, well, OK. I felt quite contained and close to the ground. The dealer kept saying, "cute, very cute" as I asked about the high mileage and every suspiciuos sound.

I then proceeded to test drive a Saab, Saturn and Chevrolet. The grand conclusion is that I just need some cheap and cheerful. Perhaps a not-so-sexy pickup. Although, frankly, I think a woman in a pickup can be quite cute.
