Ruby Tuesday - Mid-life Crisis Car

This is what I call a mid-life crisis car. What is it about men and racy cars?
And no......... it isn't ours Smiley Faces
But to Avram's great delight, it was ours for 3 days. We had rented a nice practical economy car for our vacation up to Newport, RI. Unfortunately/fortunately, the rental place was out of cars, so they upgraded us to this lovely vehicle.

P.S. His birthday's coming up real soon......

Nice picture!

On a related note, what is your feeling about German cars? If they had offered a red BMW convertible would you have taken it or would you have asked for something (anything) else?

I think its cuz by that time, even if you cant afford it, you think hmmm maybe I should get one anyway, my life is half over. ;)

Nice RT!

The appeal of a convertible car for a city driver is one that completely eludes me (as does the appeal of sidewalk cafes in midtown in the summer): who needs to breathe in the exhaust of everyone else's car? Nonetheless, I hope that you had fun shlepping up I-95 in your fancy wheels.

I don't know what it says about me that I immediately recognized the awning of the B&B before reading the post. Good to see that the place has recovered from having eighteen members of our family staying there for shabbat a few months back. Highlight of the trip: the rav of the Touro Synagogue was my uncle's Hebrew School teacher back in the pre-historic days, and the two had a very emotionally warm reunion.

Ah, Newport! A place to visit when my youngest can be on her own. I went there many years ago for the day with a friend.

He looks like he is really getting a kick out of that car.

There is nothing better than driving in a convertible! Even with a sheitel!

I am neither male, nor (hopefully) at mid-life, and I LOOOOOOVE convertibles! The last time I rented one it was a little 2 seater Nissan Z roadster.

I might consider having my own midlife crisis if I could have this perk. Not so much the convertible but the color of the car. No way I could ever lose that color car in a crowded mall parking lot.

ProfK -
Are you sure?
They say that red cars are the most frequently targeted by vandals....

My favorite car was my red Grand Am. I miss it, but love that I need my minivan!
