Greetings, Cool Peeps:
Let me ask you this: What does your ride say about you?
I know some peeps are just happy to have wheels to take them where they need to go. Let’s face it, we’re in some tough financial times, and having a car to match your personality isn’t at the top of the average person’s list. That being said, when I see certain vehicles, I can’t help but wonder if the owner is male and what he might look like. And sometimes, when I see a particular man of interest, I like to play a game with myself and guess what kind of car he drives.
Wanna play? Please, come along with me for the ride.
I live in Swansea, a town where a lot of men ride golf carts in their spare time. Most of them have big bucks and associate with people like the town’s she-devil, Naomi Hall-Benchley, whom I avoid like moldy fruit. Nothing against golfers, peeps, just sayin’ we probably won’t go clubbin’ together.
Isn’t this DeSoto cute? The last ones were manufactured in 1960. I’m thinking the owner probably isn’t as old as his car, probably has a much newer ride that is cool and sleek (and actually runs), and just might be a hip dude…or not.
My guess is that the driver of this Mini Cooper certainly won’t be anywhere near as tall as Gary Cooper was, and also that this “he” might just be a she. Mini Coopers also make me just a wee bit claustrophobic. Thoughts?
I’m sure this is a beautiful dream in progress (aren’t we all?), but let’s keep moving. In fact, step on it!
Who owns this fab truck? I want to meet him.
Okay, peeps, this is a cute little red-wheeled number, you think? But the freakin’ wheels remind me of a dude I knew who wore clown shirts with big red buttons. I can’t look at this car without expecting that guy to pop out of the trunk like a jack-in-the-box.
When I look at this photo, I’m thinking, “Knock, knock, anyone home?” I’m guessing that the owner of this vehicle also lives here. Might be a rad place to hang for the evening. I’m picturing a dude with long hair who’s probably got a guitar and a “stash” stashed somewhere in here.
This one blows me away. Richard Nixon was president from 1969 until 1974. And this dude voted for him and kept the bumper sticker in mint condition. Looks like the owner of this car spends a lot of time keeping the car in spiffy condition, too. Moving right along…
This snazzy vehicle is shared by a bunch of cool New Yorkers. Really, what an awesome job to taxi tacos around! If you ride over enough potholes, they will come out of their shells for sure and spill their guts.
This one has me curious. I have no idea who might own the truck, but if he is as cute as his dog, it’s a date!
Normally, I’m not digging guys who use chauffeurs. But in this case, I think I could be forgiving.
The guy who owns this truck has a great sense of humor and a loving heart. And he also might have a very large…uh…car alarm.
The guy who owns this car might be a hunk, but why do I think that his dog is going to guard and protect him forever — even from lil’ ol’ me?
Peeps, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that all of the guys who drive this ride are well traveled and look hot in a uniform. I think a woman has to be very secure to date a pilot or any man who’s out of town a lot. Not saying it wouldn’t work, though…
Okay, I’m coming clean. This ride is owned by a woman. A very hip friend. And this sweet dog has the name of all names: Molly. What can I tell you? Just had to share.
Dreams are made of rides like this one. This guy is magical. He eats to his heart’s content, yet he still fits down chimneys and flies through the air. He is the most well-traveled man ever, even though he stays put 364 days a year, and when he rides over Naomi Hall-Benchley’s mansion, he shouts “Ho ho ho” as he makes hoop shots with coal that go right down her chimney and into her stocking. What a guy!
Let me hear your stories. I know you’ve got some.
See you next week,
Yours in pickiness,
