Which Way Challenge

January, 2020 – Chicago, IL

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 and picked up again by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.

Women and cars, cars with character. I was just lamenting to a friend how cars seem to resemble each other and how there’s little variation. I’m saddened that the new version of the VW Bug is to be no more. So I’m looking for cars with charm and character.

Now I’d be worried about driving in a small car surrounded by so many SUVs.

Funny

My Dad got a new car on Friday. I always love the smell of new cars and it’s fun to see the new features and be in such a pristine vehicle.

What makes me laugh is there are all kinds of voice activated features, but they don’t exactly work right. So when I was getting my first ride, my father told the car to “Turn up the air conditioning.” and the car turned on the radio to a station in L.A. with a traffic report. Then Dad repeated his request and the car turned on the heating.

There are a few kinks.

Lamborghini Uber Ride?

YouTube has such serendipity. Somehow yesterday I ran across this video when a young man used his Lamborghini to give Uber rides. People were gobsmacked to say the least. I especially enjoyed is second ride.

Today I saw his more pedestrian/useful video on parallel parking.

This week’s challenge inspired me to find images of old cars. Here’s what I found on Flickr Commons.

I was going to share some videos from Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but now their only available on Netflix. It’s a shame. That show planted a bee in my bonnet to buy a vintage car.
