In High School I drove a '97 deep purple Saturn (a now discontinued brand). A week after getting my driver's license (of which I failed the first test due to 3 dangerous acts, a story for another time), my sister and I were going shopping for Christmas gifts. Equal parts showing off; not paying attention and an icy winter driveway resulted in me reversing the car into the fire hydrant at the end of our driveway. My Dad immediately came running out of the house and was quite calm about the incident, he just wanted to make sure we were ok. He bought duct tape to seal the damage to the driver side door (nothing like a DIY car repair!) and it worked like a charm, except the driver's door never properly shut again so you were exposed to the elements; come rain, snow, wind or hail! Regardless, I spent a blissful two years driving my ghetto fabulous Saturn, and it was even my ride to senior prom (you can bet the limo renters were jealous!)
Eight years later and I've significantly updated my wheels. My man always wanted to drive an upscale car so after careful deliberation we chose a black Audi A4 which I love zipping around town in.
We may drive an Audi but this week was all about Mercedes Benz when my man and I attended the Mercedes Benz StartUp semi-final fashion show on Tuesday night. StartUp is a national competition that provides emerging Canadian fashion designers with mentorship and support. Caitlin Power's futuristic collection & Christopher Bate's menswear designs won them both a place in the finals and I look forward to seeing more of their Canadian talent in the future.
Two sexy rides ;)
Are you a car lover? (although hopefully not to this extreme!) What's your favourite type of auto?
