baby, you can drive my car


Let’s talk about cars. Mostly I don’t care about them. All I really want is good gas mileage, compact size and reliability (although the last one seems to be sacrificed when you’re as poor as I am). I loved my car, the one that got totaled in June. The replacement is okay. I have given some thought to what I would buy if I could buy a new car and pretty much settled on the new Mazda 3. (Amusingly, when Hols went to buy a new car she asked me if I had any suggestions and I said the Mazda 3 and after all her dad’s comparison shopping and strict examination of cars, she ended up with the Mazda 3, thus convincing me I was right about them.) However, the lovely Marcasita has made me aware of the new Mini Cooper Clubman.

Mini’s are swell. Cute and all, but really too small. The Clubman however is just enough bigger to be perfect. It gets good gas mileage. It has the awesome 3rd suicide style door my Saturn has, but WAY more space. It comes in

  1. new Mazda 3

    I have one of those (the 5-door). I got it in May. It is ten kinds of awesome.

    (I looked at the Mini and it just didn’t have enough room for me AND the dogs AND all of my other nonsense that ends up taking up residence in my car.)

  2. Having no animals and not being in a band or anything, the slightly larger Cooper is perfect for me. But yeah, I drive H’s M3 a bunch and it’s a pretty damn awesome car.

  3. Hee! It is majorly, deliciously tempting.
