And now, the moment you have all been waiting for (actually probably not)… I finally have pictures of my car! No, it’s not so crafty, except for maybe the ‘detailing’ aka cleaning I did to it yesterday, but who cares?
Yes, he is old and rickety looking. Yes, he could use a good bath, and probably a paint job (pink, anyone?), but I love him. He’s so cute and funny looking in a good way. These pictures do not do much justice to his looks. I tried to get better ones, but to no avail. Someday…
Anyway, he is a 1971 Toyota Corolla- can you say vintage?-, with no heating or air conditioning- perfect for those Colorado winters-, he is baby blue and is probably about 8 or nine feet long. I actually feel normal sized when driving.*
On to the pictures:
No pictures of the inside. Even after all of the cleaning, it still needs a little sprucing up.
Oh yes, and his name. My mom and I thought of his name while driving home after shopping the other day. We were listening to an 80’s song, and being Australian (I believe( they pronounced the same quite hilariously. Anyway, his name is: Nigel. Yes, Nigel. I also added a middle name, making him Nigel Elliott. Cool, eh? If you couldn’t tell, I really do like this car. I just hope he lasts until I can actually drive him by myself 😀
*Being 5’1″ can make a person feel a little stunted when driving, say, a mini-van or huge Ford truck.
