Internet, meet Tish

11 years ago I owned a red VW Cabriolet convertible that was rapidly (it was 12 years old when I bought it) falling apart. We had to make the decision to trade it or invest quite a bit of funds into it without knowing where it would end. I loved that car. It was the exact car from the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love” (except red) and every girl my age dreamed of having one in high school. I didn’t get mine until way, WAY, after that, obvs.

Sprog was 7 and decided I should have a PT Cruiser with flames just like his favorite matchbox car and so I went and got one. Not the exact one he wanted (it didn’t come in cobalt blue with orange flames, thankfully) but black with purple was an acceptable compromise.

And now here we are 11 years later with a rapidly falling apart PT Cruiser that is requiring way more money than it’s worth to keep going. I had a list of vehicles. I did my research. I did multiple test drives and yet, I bought a VW.

The night I brought the car home still unsure if I had a “he” or “she”

And of course I had to name the car and called out to the internet for guidance which is what eventually brought me to Morticia (as in Addams) and the nickname Tish

The seats are custom and I love them, you know our family and it’s weird thing with matching.

All the buttons are red at night so everything goes together. You can also see my name right there in between the speedometer and tach since it pairs with my phone via bluetooth.

Tish’s first trip to Target…where I parked way out in BFE and my husband teased me.

I absolutely LOVE my car. It’s so great having a car with some fire (hi turbo, I love you), the PT had no pep whatsoever, and yet still good gas mileage. Plus, it’s a standard, which Sprog doesn’t know how to drive so my car is safe from ÃœBER JEALOUS teenage clutches at the present time. BONUS.
