This is all I need for all the running around I do. I no longer work on a daily basis, or any basis at all for that matter, and only use my car for visiting family & friends. This little car is called the 'Nano.' It gets 50 mpg, seats 4 and has a new car price of only $2,500 and I thought I would never be able to afford a new car on my retirement pay again. The only bad thing is that I think they are only sold in India right now.
With only an engine size of 625cc's the engine is more than twice as small as my motorcycle and with this small price, even if it doesn't last but 3 -4 years, you can afford to buy another one. I wonder how much repairs would cost? and who would work on it if something happened to it. I'm also wondering how much it would cost to ship one of these little babies over here to the U.S. It's cute, but I think I heard on the news that it only goes 60 mph, so of course you'd have to stay in the slow lane on the interstate highways. You'd probably feel like a little bug on the road if one of those big tractor trailer trucks whizzed by you. You may even get blown off the road by a strong wind...or maybe a not so strong wind. It was nice to see that they made these little cars in my favorite color...red. I love red, but red is prone to getting hit. It's like a target that everybody aims at. "Let's see if you can hit that red thang, Mary Lou!"
You can read more about that little car HERE.
Changing the subject, sort of....
Do any of you think that they paint the line in the center of the road with a strong magnetic paint? It's hard for me to keep my car away from that line and if another car is approaching I'm drawn to it like a strong magnet. They must paint cars with the same paint.
Well, I just finished my bowl of cereal and I see it's already time for lunch, so I'd better get off this computer and check out what my hubby has cooking for Sunday dinner cause I don't smell anything. Shucks...he's already gone outside for the day, so I'd better get a move on and get myself showered and dressed. It looks like it's going to be a very nice day.
