Big decision

Rat Fink

Well, gulp…yesterday, I put a deposit down on this lovely thing. Behold the new Finkmobile.

It’s been close to 30 years since I’ve bought a brand-new, just-off-the-assembly-line car. There is trepidation, fiends. It’s a big commitment. All this is to say, of course, that if I get there Friday evening and test-drive it, and I don’t love it, I will stick out my little rat paw and ask for my deposit back, and continue the hunt.

I’ve read and read and read about the car and the brand (thanks for the heads-up on it, Heffe!), and I’m relatively sure it’s the one I want. And I adore the color — Metallic Sky Blue. Never owned a blue car.

I was originally skeptical about the beige interior, but the more I think about it, the more I kind of like it. Seat covers are probably in the future — especially for the back, where little feet will be dangling from kid seats. Still, it’s a very pretty car, and if I’m going to jump off this bridge, I will do so and look cute at the same time.

Then again, I might get into it and say, “Nope. Not for me.” (That ain’t the plan, though.)

So how do you think the Fink will look in this buggy? Is it cute enough? Because, as you know, that’s a crucial puzzle piece. :-)

WOW niiiiice!!!!! A friend of mine had a Hyundai in CA and he really liked it. They are pretty popular here, too. I think you will look super-cute in it!
