Guess what I did yesterday?

I went with Mr. Potts to test drive a car! Two cars in fact.

A few facts about me:
  • I'm a driver. I love cars built for driving. Those with tight suspensions that can hug a turn at 55mph and not drift.
  • I can drive a stick - a 6 speed, if you please. And I'll admit, I'm good at it.
  • I used to drive a little 350Z. I miss it. It was sporty, it was fast, it was me.
  • I now drive a Honda Accord named Betsy. Why Betsy? Well, she's like your girl next door. She's so not me. When she's dirty (which is frequent) she's dirty girl Betsy.
  • I test drove 2 cars today.
  • A 2006 BMW 325i automatic sedan
  • A 2007 BMW 328i 6 speed manual coupe. After driving the 6 speed I realized what I've been missing.
Now, to find the right one for me. Our BMW dealership is searching & I'm hoping they will find what I want.

So exciting! Keep us posted! And I'm super impressed you can drive stick!

I grew up on a farm and can drive a stick on a tractor, but not in a car. I know, such a ditz. That 328i is jazzy. My Merceded M-class is named "silver cloud", because she drives like a cloud. SO fun.

So fun! I absolutely LOVE car shopping! Let us know what you get!
PS: I cannot drive a stick. Not even close. When I was 16 I nearly dropped the transmission out of my daddy's truck trying to learn. Since then I have never tried.
