A few of my friends have been in the market for new cars, recently. It’s exciting, but I’m also jealous at the same time.

One friend just recently bought a 2015 Kia Rio hatchback, and I have to say, it’s actually a nice little car. It’s not too expensive, but it came with some slick bells and whistles.

I also work with a guy that is in the market for a BMW X5 from this year’s lineup. It’s a little flashy, and the price tag makes me cringe, but whatever floats your boat, right?


Unfortunately, that leaves me stuck driving my wonderfully aging 2009 Dodge Caliber in old man beige. I can’t actually complain, as it was gifted to me from my grandparents when they decided they were in no shape to drive anymore. That thing has worked wonders for us. We even drove it all the way down to New Orleans and back last year. Personally, I’d like to be driving a Mercedes-Benz SL (like the one in the header image), but for now I’m just dreaming.

So my question for you is: What kind of car/truck/van/moped are you currently driving? What is your dream car?


If you don’t want to talk about those, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
