Two weeks ago on Saturday, I brought my new baby home.
A 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio. I love this little buggy. I’ve wanted a convertable in a bad way since last summer, to have as a summer car. A few weeks age I drove with a friend in his little Mercedes convertable, and the very next day I was out hunting one down for myself. I picked the Cabrio for it’s sporty-ness. It’s a very zippy little car. I had the idea to get a two seater, when both my dad and my sister came up with good reasons against it. Supposedly, insurance is higher, says my sister, and my dad, who can never believe all the baggage I always travel with, asked where I would put all my stuff. Points taken. The Cabrio has a full trunk, and the insurance rate for me was pretty low for 6 months, which is all I’ll need on it anyways, as I’m planning on storing it over the winter. Even though this one is 5 years old, and it’s had 3 previous owners, it only has 40,000 miles on it, and the interior, even though it’s been detailed, is in near perfect condition.
I drove it up to Michigan last week, and I can honestly say it was the best 5 and a half hour drive ever. Ever. While I love my Jeep to pieces, and will never never ever part with it (seriously, my unborn kids will be taking it off to college) the Jeep was given to me by my parents, while the Cabrio, the Cabrio is Earned. And that feels amazingly good.
Louie would like me to take him for a ride. He’s cute.
