Automobiles - Das Autos

I want a new car. Not need, want. I already have a car. It's a really shitty car, but it gets me to uni and work and home. But, I want something new. Hell, not even new, just the car I want.

Okay, so I'm sure you want to know what I drive, right? ...right? Well...I'll tell you anyways! I currently drive a 2002 Kia Spectra - black - front wheel drive - license plate num...er, yeah! This car is all fine and dandy, I've only had it break down on me once. It happened two weeks after I got it, but it was fixed in a day, and I haven't had a break down since - almost three years later. I have hit someone, I guess. I mean, I barely scraped the side of them. They tried to get me to pay a crap load for it. Wankers.

Anyways, this car is all well and good, but it's not really me. So, what car do I really want? Well, there's actually three cars that I want, that are practical...I guess. And one of them I could probably afford!

First on the list, and least likely for me to get is an Alfa Romeo. Any Alfa Romeo. Don't really care which, I just sort of want one. They aren't especially well made, especially popular and they aren't even the best in much of any area, really. But, they have a sort of elegance about them that cannot be ignored. They are what they are, and I love them.

Second, and the one I want least (this list is not ordered) is a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 1. Now, before you start calling me out for wanting an Evo, this isn't the same Evo produced today. This is the Evo from around '92. It was a brilliant car. It looked like a ralley car in some ways, and drove like a beast. It's a class from the past.

Third, and the one I'm most likely to get/what I want the most - A Mini Cooper. Again, hold off on the hate train. These little cars are absolute quality. Half-British/Half-German - this car is made to take on anything and everything. Well, maybe not, but it's still great. It's got brilliant handling, a good enough speed/accel. and it is small enough to park anywhere. Despite how small it is on the outside, there's a surprising amount of room on the inside, and it gets good gas mileage, so that's another plus for the car.

I'd really love to have any of these cars, but I'm a broke college student, so it'd be hard to afford them. Oh well, the future will bring them to me!
