3.3.10 // CAR HUNTRESS

I'm currently on a heated quest for the perfect vehicle. I'm moving from Connecticut to California and my current car just isn't going to cut it. At the moment, I'm driving a 1991 Dodge Shadow convertible. In her heyday she was a sexy piece of machinery. Even Celine Dion thought so.

Sadly, she now looks less like this:

..and more like this:


Here are some of the cars I've been looking at. I have two weeks to get a car that will 1.) be safe and 2.) make me look cool while I drive it. I know that station wagons don't usually fall under the category of "cool", but I don't know.. they just do something for me!


I'm really excited for this trip. A friend of mine is coming along for the ride. We spent the morning planning our route over tea at a really cute local coffee shop called Espresso Neat. If you're ever in southern Connecticut (I know... it's such a hopping vacation spot, right?), check it out!

Here's the tentative route:

If I'm passing through your way, let me know and we'll get coffee!

  1. I have a volvo wagon and I love it. Be aware though of how expensive Volvo's, Mercedes', and VW's are to fix. I've had Volvos and VW's throughout my driving career and they've consistantly dealt a serious blow to my bank account when a problem came about. They last a long time if you take proper care of them, but also require more maintenance when they get older and your mileage gets up there. That said, they are safe and great cars!


Thanks for your comments! Each and every one means so much!
