Found: My Dream Car

Last year I was a guest blogger on {frolic!} and mentioned that an old BMW is my dream car. Well, I just found one on eBay. The only way it could be better is if it were dark red. Why don't I have a garage! There's no way I'd park this shiny new paint on the street! Someday, I will own one of these!

Or, another option if you were thinking of buying it for me... Lately, I've also started loving old Mercedes. The ones with the hubcaps painted the same color as the car, plus they are often diesel so I could make it a biodiesel. How awesome are those!

{guest blogger ansley: dream cars}

Do you have a dream car? When I'm being practical I would say something like a Toyota Prius or Hybrid Civic. But my real dream car is a BMW, an old one like a 1973 BMW 2002 (I think the convertible is a 1600). But I have to wait either until I can afford to completely restore it with new interior, new engine, and chrome trim on everything, or wait till I get married so I always have someone to call when it won't start. These pictures are great (especially the lederhosen) but to me, the ideal color is a shiny deep maroon.

oooh, I love that car. There is just something quintessentially cool about it. Plus, if you ever wanted to learn how to repair your car you actually could. Okay, maybe I have been listening to too much car talk.

Sara- you found the new post so quickly, were you using google reader? :) I'm totally addicted.

You like the Google Reader, huh?:) I am trying to set rules for myself starting today. This blogging is getting out of control. You need to buy one of these cars when you move back to Portland and live in that condo.
