My New Love

I've been driving Volvos for a long time. I loved this particular car, my 2005 Volvo S60. We had a special relationship, PJ and I. Comfort, class, speed, safety...when we met, it was magic. At the time, it was the perfect match.


My lease was about to expire in October, and I had a decision to make. Do I buy the car? Do I get another Volvo?

Then one day, I saw this on the street.


It was love at first sight. I was thrilled, exhilirated. I had found the car that feels like who I am today and who I want to be. Fun, free and creative.

It took us a while to get together, but this past weekend, I finally made that leap of faith that is necessary in all great romances.


Rachel & _______ (TBD), on the day we said 'I Do' 8/31/08

I can't decide on a name. We're still getting to know each other...any ideas?

Congratulations! You make a BEAUTIFUL couple. I wish you many years of happiness and safety together. Enjoy your ride. I'm gonna have to think on my suggestion for a name.

Katherine said...

Congrats! What a great pair!So much cooler than a Volvo! : )

The names that come to mind are Eli, Tango, and Bevo (That's from the University of Texas Longhorn mascot) but whatever you choose will be perfect!

Hmmm. Katherine, I like Eli - just cute enough but not too cute. Thanks for your input! This is the MOST fun car ever!

Steph said...

Very groovy car! Is it a boy or a girl car?

Rachel said...

I think a boy car...

My car's name is Juanita Winterberry. (Winterberry is the official Dodge name for the color)

I wish you a long and beautiful relationship with him.

Hi Rachael, very cool that you have a new set of wheels and even cooler that you name them!!! I just got a new Mitsubishi Colt in black and I called her Lola (as in "Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl..."). Love her to bits but it took an hour in the showroom to figure out her name. I really like Tango like Katherine suggested. Best wishes to you both! lol I hope you have a great time together. Cheers, Lu
