10 Things About HIS Car - Monday Listicles
Link up with Stasha at The good life for Monday Listicles. It's a different topic every week - follow along and join in. Stasha's a great host and always has interesting things for us to make our lists about.
Upon the demise of Stasha's beloved mini-van, and it's impending replacement (which has not been an easy decision), she has picked this week's topic: 10 Things About My Car.
I'm not really much of a car girl. Oh sure, there are a few I'd love to have if I had some disposable income laying around, but I could never and would never spend and enormous amount of money on a car when there are other things I could or should buy.
Anyradiator, I'm not a car girl. As long as it looks decent (okay, I'm a little picky) and is reliable, I'm all in. Even better, my current vehicle gets fantastic gas mileage, which kinda rocks my yucky commute. And really, that's the reason we bought it.
So here are 10 thing about Hubs' muscle car that inhabits our garage:
1. It is a convertible Chevelle and was made in 1969 by Chevrolet.
2. It's red.
3. It is not allowed to be driven in the rain.
4. It is required to have a space in the two car garage. Ahem. That means two cars are in the driveway.
5. It is required to wear a car cover while in the garage.
6. Sometimes empty cardboard boxes get stored on the car cover, on the car, in the garage. Hubs is not always happy about this. But you never know when you might need an empty cardboard box.
7. We sometimes hide The Boy's Christmas or birthday presents in the car, under the car cover, in the garage.
8. I drove it once. In the neighborhood.
9. When he starts the car, it stinks up my garage and I don't allow anyone to open the door between the garage and the house. I lock 'em out and make 'em use the front door. It's just a minor 'thing' I have about carbon monoxide poisoning. Or stink poisoning.
10. When he talks of selling it, I say no. I know he loves it. He's always loved these cars. But if he wanted to sell it and buy a 1969 Camaro to replace it, I'd consider it.
