Pecadillo's new ride - part 2

Well you've seen the vehicles I've already ruled out, my quest continues:

Another possibility is the Honda Carry:

The Honda Carry

With the Carry, owners have the distinct privlage of driving a car that looks the same from both ends. While that's a dream I've had since childhood, I kind of want a vehicle that won't tip over at the first gust of wind.

The Alto Hustle

What a beauty. I'm not sure, but something tells me that the Alto Hustle was originally designed for the Animal Control service. Call me crazy, but I don't want any passenger of mine to catch hydrphobie... again. C-train has never really been the same.

The HondaVan
The aptly named StepVan derives its appellative from the fact that it is 1. a van, and 2. roughly the same size as a step ladder.

The HondaVan

With the StepVan, you get a vehicle that can - and often does - double as a closet.

The HondaVan

And just look at the colorful crowd of people that the StepVan attracts. Those are people I want to party with.

The Honda Truck

Although... chicks dig guys with trucks.

I don't know, maybe I've been going about this the wrong way entirely. I don't need another car, what I need is a hog. Yeah, a hog is sure to make me look butch. And nothing says "butch" like a Zook:

The Zook

Even this young Asian man is frightened by the shear manliness that is the Zook.

The Zook

I'll be honest, I'm not really sure what's going on in that last picture.

The Zook

Sadly, I'm afraid I might look a bit silly on the Zook. I'm 6 foot 3, and I estimate our Asian friend here at no more than 4 foot 8. Even at his small stature, he looks like an awkward giant on the Zook. I don't know, maybe I should leave the Vespa's for Chesney Hawkes.

The Trunk Bike

Maybe what I need isn't a motorcycle instead of a car, I need a motorcycle that will fit in my car.

The Trunk Bike

The Trunk Bike has it all; it fits in your car, it doubles as a automan, it even comes with its own tote-bag.

The Trunk Bike

My friends and I often find ourselves in this pose, all I need is the minibike to complete the picture.

The Road Fox

Here it is. I've found my new ride. I need look no further. Who could resist a name like "The Road Fox"? I defy you to find anything cooler than a Vespa with training wheels.

The Road Fox

While driving this beaut' around, people will know you're either the bad boy in town, or you've been stricken with adult onset diabetes.

Where do I sign?

I have often wondered. why in the world do japanies advertisements for cars have a bunch of anglo americans in their ad's? Seems to me you would want your target audience represented in your advertisments. And how many asian burger stands are there? We may never know.

you guys are so funny. thanks for starting my days off with laughter. personally, i like "pat" & "mike" - is it not amazing, walking on the same feet for 51 years and still very little sign of wear! I defy you to find anything man-made to last like that!

I haven't laughed that hard in a long while.

Thanks for bringing some much needed humor to my Friday…

I'm pretty sure C-Train is IN that group picture.

A man riding his Zook, it's a 'scratch your head and wonder'-ful thing!

I just got a new vehicle myself. I had an option on the colorful singing people and I chose no. My last car came with three earth tone clad chanters and they were a nightmare. They were constantly sluggish or else completely broken. And they never looked at all like they did in the picture.

I kinda like the minibike/ottoman. It would garner me a lot of respect when I visited customers.

I too liked the motorized ottoman - I wouldn't have to park it outside, but could drive it right up to my desk - and then put it underneath for comfort. Were that not enough, I am sure that there must be an "extreme-sport" associated with it...

Haha, Daniel, no doubt there already is Xtreme Trunk Biking in the X-Games (complete with Trunk Biking on the vert ramp and Freestyle Trunk Biking).

Those transportation devices are quite fascinating. If you sell my army the plans to them, we might spare your miserable life.

I don't know who you are ( I think we have some mutual friends), but you're on my good list because Fletch is listed as a favorite on your profile.
Ok, gotta run, Freida lost Jim Swarthow's number.

OK. I wasn't going to say anything, but given where you live and what traffic is like there, you need to go ahead and just buy a propane-powered golf cart.

The Golf cart have many unique features, but to me the most appealing is that if you drive it all over town as if it's not a prank, you look like a guy who has all the money in the world and you don't give a rat's tail what other people think about you.

All those cretins with expensive cars can't drive their Jags and their Hummers onto the golf course. Me? I don't even have to park -- and I have a tee time in 10 minutes, so get the !@#! out of my way.

There is a reason why I never tell anyone I have a blog and you figured it out. They aren't very good. I work at Master's in Student Finance, I hope Anne likes me because I love her, and if you want to know how I hurt my arm you can ask Jedi, I'm sure he'll have something interesting to say about it.

Hey I read your father's posting about the Starbucks on Sepulveda and Nordoff.

Went to Sepulveda Jr. High like ... 25years ago, so don't knock it too hard.

Sigh..it was a nice area back then.
