Necessary for a New Car for LOLZ

This post can also be nicknamed as LOLZProblems…

As some followers know, I haven’t had the best luck with vehicles.  I’ve never been in a serious accident (knock on wood), have I’ve had my fair share of speeding tickets (and learned driving fast gets you nowhere).

I’ve also had a couple of fender benders (including my car sliding into a police car).  Now that I’m older and wiser (ha), I’ve become much more cautious.  These days I drive like a grandma in the right lane. That is easy in NJ when cars fly by you at 80+.

Anyways enough about my driving habits.  I do like to hang out with people and telling them about my past doesn’t exactly entice anyone to go in a car ride with me…

This post is meant to be humorous.

As most people know, we recently purchased a car (which I named Gretchen). It’s a 2012 BMW. Lorraine is still running well but eventually she won’t be. I have no car repair skills and since Lorraine is a 2000 with 140,000 miles, eventually things will break.

Here are some important things Gretchen is equipped with…These are things important to my life and past with cars.

A safety feature that I cannot lock the keys into the car. Last year I was extremely ditzy and locked my keys in my car a few times…From visiting Princeton last year to the wind blowing it shut at the NJ turnpike rest stop…

Last Feb while running with Megan and Greta I accidentally locked my keys in my car in Princeton.  After a 16 mile you don't want to come back to that...

Heated seats.

For heating the (non)bum butt at all times. 90 degrees riding with the seat warmers on? Sure…it will sure feel good.

All wheel drive.

My senior year of college, Lorraine skidded on black ice…

right into a police car…

right in front of the entire men’s basketball team.

Always scrape your windshield (I didn't drive like this..)

The policeman was nice about it but it was extremely embarrassing.  It was unfortunate my car slid into a police car and with 2 dozen spectators.  It was a rough month….anyways all wheel drive so I can plow through the NJ winter.

Most importantly…perfect cup holders for the gas station coffee life.

I have to get my coffee in the morning and these cup holders hold it perfectly…I give myself about a year before I break one and then spend 200 dollars to get it fixed.

Outside of the LOLZ, I wanted a car would last a long time.  I’ve driven the same car since high school and I would like to get at least (if not more) miles out of the next car.
