So right, and yet so wrong…

Your Summer Ride is a Toyota Prius

Sure you're a little sensible and quite green

But no one enjoys outdoors more than you do!

Well, yes. I must confess the Prius appeals to me on many, many, many levels. The ‘green thing’ not the least among them. I mean, in real life, if I didn’t have the whole “needing to haul a family of six around” thing holding me back, sure! I would be there! Saving the earth, one gallon of gas at a time while enjoying a cool(ish) ride fits very nicely into my secret eco-nazi agenda.

But my summer ride, my summer ride, my fantasy ‘if I could have any ride I wanted’ summer ride, would be a Jaguar XKR convertible. This baby boasts a price tag of $88,000 out the door, 390 horsepower giving a rippin’ 155 MPH top speed (ahem – says the woman who you are ALWAYS stuck behind who insists on going precisely five (5) miles over the speed limit and not a crawl faster) at 23 MPG.

Oh yeah. Vroom, vroom. $300 sunglasses. Hundred dollar cashmere t-shirt. Tweed pants. Hand-knit socks, for that all-important dork factor.
