Seriously, I always used to drive compact cars, until I saw the crumple zones in action once I had a baby.

My ex was tailgating (as usual) and stopped suddenly, so the woman behind us rammed into us and totalled the car. Luckily everyone was okay, especially my son (who was only 2 months old at the time) and I was so freaked out, the ex talked me into getting a blazer.

Gas guzzling and with no features, but, BIG and I felt safer.

Recently traded that in on a slightly smaller Ford Escape (with all the options). Twice the gas mileage as the Blazer, but, doesn't have 4wd. ~shrugs~ Hopefully I'll be just fine without it.

You know those drivers, who you look at and think "They REALLY shouldn't be behind the wheel..."?  I'm one of those, except for the fact that I don't.  Between that and the eyesight, it's really a no-brainer.

Stock photo, but it looks like mine, the color is right.  The only pics I have of mine are from when I hit a deer.

The slaves for all they're worth?

 

In "unfriendly" weather, such as we're having now (-13°C this morning), a 2002 Honda Civic SiR (known as an Si in the States.)

 

In better weather, a Honda PC800 Pacific Coast.  Body by Tupperware.  Two wheels' good, Baby!  It's the Latoya Jackson of motorcycles: all fat **** and fake leather.

 

How many of you have named your rides?  I haven't got one yet for the Civic, but the Pacific Coast is "The Jetson Interceptor."

I don't drive. I've only got a learner driver licence, BUT I do have a full motorcycle licence and ride a Kawasaki ER6F. Same colour as this one
