Writer's Block: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Oh, definitely. There was the Mousemobile, my '81 Chevette that didn't have horsepower so much as mousepower; Claudia, the Renault Alliance that resented not growing up to be an Oldsmobile (here's a tip, don't name your cars after crazy vampires, they live up to it just like cats), Inchcape, who WAS an Oldsmobile (Delta 88), Iggy the silver Volvo wagon, Candy-O the red Cavalier convertible, Iggy Blue the second Volvo wagon, also known as the Tank-brick, and now Gossamer, who is another little red Chevy hatchback just like my very first car ever. Yes, named after the hairy red sneaker monster from Looney Tunes. I have a Gossamer fob on my key chain and a little stuffie Gossamer hanging from the rearview mirror. Isn't it great that Six Flags has Looney Tunes theming?
