Contemplating all the modes of travel I have used at one time or another...
I have ridden in, or driven...
Let's see... a trike, a bike, a horse, a stage coach, one or two different types of carriages, several different vehicles, a log flume, rafts, sailboat, motorcycle, a car hood, (is a pogo stick transportation?), sled. I am sure there are probably more, but that was what I cold think of quickly.
It's amazing how the car, especially has changed over time. From a "Tin Lizzie" to the newest models off the showroom floor, they do all sorts of things now... But.
But, I am amazed how something that is simply a device to transport you from A to B, can be such an amazing statement of personality. I have run the gamut from small cars to small station wagons, to a larger truck, back to a small truck, and now a Jeep. (Well, Husband and I share the small truck, but the Jeep is mine... Mostly.)
Anyway, if it was strictly for moving my 'stuff' and me and mine to and fro, I would have the truck. But I know some that would have none of that, they have a car that has super audio, electric everything, might even brew coffee for you, as many woo things as it has.
But, it's still a car.
Then there's Dad. When he had his first rig, it was a Model A.* Time went on, he has had trucks, work vans, cars, etc, as time and finances came and went. He is now building the car he's wanted for years.
Another Model A.
Is this a case of what goes around comes around???
* For any technically inclined, I believe it is actually a Model AA. But we refer to it as Big A, and the new one as Little A. I will try and get some pics for a future blog. And yes, he still has the one he had as a kid...
