Round Robin Challenge: My Vehicle Of Choice

From For Ellipsis

RRC: My Vehicle Of Choice
Suggested by Suzanne, of the blog, SuzyQ421's Photoblog

Suzanne had a really good idea with this one, basically we are to spend a little time pimping our favorite rides! Above you see my car Lilith. I bought her in late September of 2006. She is a 2007 Saturn ION, in Cypress Green. Alan has a matching on in Golden Cashmere. We bought our cars on the same day. There are a lot of pluses to doing things that way, but a lot of minuses as well, like having both registrations come due at the same time. Sheesh. It will $450 out the window in the next couple months, just for car registrations. Oh well, I love my car. She is dependable, and easy to drive, and she is a good fit for me. She is actually the second Saturn I have owned, my previous one was a 1999 Saturn SL1, in black and white, and when I bought that one, Alan also purchased an SW1 Wagon. As you can tell, we love the Saturn line of cars, and we were sorry to hear about the possibility of the brand being done away with. Hopefully things will work out in the end.

Here is my other favorite ride... my bike. We love to take our bikes across the bay, and ride them along the Marina Green, Fort Point and the Promenade at Chrissy Field, in San Francisco. It's beautiful there. :)

Oh you know how to make me homesick! I'd love the opportunity to get my bike and ride along the Marina Green. ::sigh:: Such happy memories. Take in some of the sights, sounds and smells for me.

Betty said...

Great looking car and what a backdrop. I did walk the entire Golden Gate Bridge once many years ago. Great city you have, I left my heart in San Francisco.

Please keep posting more pics from the Bay Area....thanks!

Your car and your bike are both so Carly! I love them! Of course I love the background in these photos too :-)

Suzanne R said...

Your car is a cute little one -- I can see you buzzing around in it, and on the bike, too. Great background for both shots!

Lin said...

That's the perfect car for running around San Fran. I love San Fran, you're lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Love the bridge! That's quite a bike ride tho'!
I think this Round Robin will be fun, I've always wanted to do one. I was lucky this time and happened to have a picture of my ride already.
