OMG - I'm a RICER
Hahaha! Not really. Hopefully just for the weekend and maybe Monday. I had to take the Mini back to the Flow body shop for some more work. They agreed to provide a rental car to me since the problems that are being fixed are things that were not done correctly the first time. More on that in a later post - I'm waiting to see how their service recovery efforts pan out.
Anyway, I got stuck with a Toyota Corolla. You guessed it - it's an "S" version. I think my wife start ROFL'ing when I told her that's what they had given me. So now I have a Japanese version of a small "sports car" I reckon. Last night we went out to dinner in it (with the whole family) and were getting a kick out of all the other cars gunning it around me.
The one good thing? We tried to trick the kids by telling them I had traded in the Mini for the "white car in the driveway". None of them were excited by that. So I'm thinking they are closer to being Mini-acs. (That is tempered somewhat by their excitement the other night in riding in my mother's Cadillac DeVille - a land barge if there ever was one.)
