I love cars, who doesn’t? Our old Toyota 4 runner and Mazda are getting old, so I though I’d peruse some of the local Asheville and surrounding dealerships.
My favorites? The Honda S200 and the BMW Z4 look amazing. Much safer than the Mazda but still pretty small. Both come in convertable models. Why do I like convertibles? Well, there is nothing like driving down the blue ridge parkway in western nc with the top down. The benefit to the Honda is that it can use a hardtop and a canvas. I prefer hardtop for theft reasons, but its nice to be able to use both. It can also ref up to 9,000 horse power? Are you kidding me? Yeah, its pretty much a racer engine in a little Honda. The Blue Ridge Parkway also has some hairpin turns which is why the BMW is nice. I’ve heard it handles turns better than most cars its size. Some other all wheel drive cars are also i my options as winter can be rough in Asheville and WNC. Hondas are so light they would just skidd everywhere in the ice and snow.
As far as SUVs or trucks… The new Ford Edge and Escape look great. Fuel economy is at the top, which is good if you are out in the mountains on a dirt road, or coming back from school to Asheville.
Well, hope everyone had a great New Year! I did, although I can’t believe the first song I heard on 2012 was LAMFO. Gotta say, that pissed me off a bit.
