Random Thoughts Driving Home On Friday Afternoon

  • The only way to listen to The Beach Boys is with the top down.
  • The Toyota Corolla is the Ford Falcon of the 21st Century.
  • Based on my research at the South Florida International Auto Show, station wagons are making a comeback. They just don’t call them that; they are now “crossover vehicles.” Well, if the vehicle has four doors, a tailgate, a roof rack, and is less than six feet tall, it’s a station wagon.
  • Spinner wheels are automotive equivalent of pink flamingoes in the front yard.
  • Definition of irony: using the NRA stickers in the back windows of pick-up trucks for .22 target practice.
  • Putting a spoiler on a Honda Civic is the equivalent of stuffing a sock in your pants. And the only reason I can think of why VW offers one on the New Beetle is so you have a place to hang your towel at the beach or push the car when it won’t start.
  • Don’t get me started on teenage boys who put coffee-can mufflers on their little parti-colored Bitsosushis and try to drag race on Coral Way. Talk about issues….
  • And if you were the guy who was driving up I-95 in a black Hummer H2 with W04 and NRA stickers, smoking a big cigar, and talking on a cell-phone, I hope you’re on your way to your therapy session. (Thanks, Tabitha.)
