For the Love of Car
I love cars. Really, I do. That doesn’t mean I am the fanatic who goes around (no offense) screaming how many horses a car carries under the hood – come to think of it, horses? I’d think cows or better yet camels would be a better yard stick. Make no mistake. I am going to judge the car you are driving. Thoroughly! Not that I will throw about the jibberish cc things that people know, or the model or the make. Chances are I will confuse a Vitz, a Duet, a March or any other small tuk-tuk like car. But the good news is, I shall never confuse a Subaru Legacy for a Toyota Corolla. You know, those saloon ones. Why? Because I know how a Subaru sounds. It has so much attitude you can hear it from many miles away. Did I hear a sigh of relief? That’s where my love affair with a Subaru probably ends.
Now, the car of my dreams. Prado GX 5 door TD 2982cc diesel engine. She has cat eyes and an amazingly beautiful behind. Other than the football field sized interior and enough leg-room for my averagely long legs, she also sports Hydraulic Power Steering, Steering Wheel with tilting adjustment, telescopic adjustment, tons of mirrors, ground clearance of 220mm, wading depth of about 700mm, compartments that allow tons of hiding places (kinda like my current handbag), I am not even counting cup holders and bottle holders, safety features like I wouldn’t believe (all the ABS, EBD, TRC, VSC, airbags spewing from everywhere), adjustable everything, standard sound system that I may not need to upgrade, full-time 4wd (you have never visited my shags). P.s: Please don’t break my daydream trying to correct me on the above specs. I like living in a bubble as far as this car is concerned.
Where did I get the stats? O Come on, I love this car. Its the only car I have ever been faithful to. Being faithful means knowing the love of your life inside and out. And this car and I have been in love for ages. We were meant for each other and we shall so be reunited, as it was meant to be. Its in the stars. Yes, I just broke into song.
