…and say hello to the Green Hornet.
Ok I never called my Nitro Red, she was just my car/truck/Nitro, she was a great truck/SUV, but she was 11 years old and I thought it was time to get something new and go back to a car.
So I had been toying with the idea of getting a Mini Cooper Countryman, I even started a Pinterest board, but I saw a cool dodge on the road the other day and I was like we have had such luck with Dodge I might want to stick with them and Jeff agreed, so then I asked on FaceBook Charger or Challenger and it was fun to read the responses. The majority said Charger, and many said get the hemi. So Jeff was partial to the hemi, and the Challenger, (I mean you should have seen his eyes light up when he was talking about a sports car) so we got in a bright red Charger with a hemi and the guy took it out on the road and floored it and I thought I was going to barf. (I mean it would be like the Mission To Mars ride every day..blech) I was like this might be too much car for me, I want to be able to pass someone on the road and give it gas and not flip the car cause the car totally wiggled when he floored it. Then we looked at a Challenger 2 door and there were so many blind spots I was like no way, and I could just see Eric climbing in the backseat…nope. So it was back to the Charger but not the hemi engine and it was love. The color is amazing like a Hunter Green (it is called F8 Green) so shiny and sparkly and she handles great, and she has plenty get up and go for this old gal. Plus 4 door and so much room, I was surprised.
What shall I name her? If I do, again I have gotten so many fun responses on FaceBook…whatever did we do before that eh? Jeff likes Green Hornet, but my BFF Tracy thinks she needs a girl name from Country Music…and sexy…ha! I know if I had of gotten the red one, it would have been Sorry Officer Puke Machine, cause I am sure it will be a ticket magnet…and well ya know barf…
Ok enough car talk…thanks for listening.

I had a dark green Toyota 4Runner several years back – loved it !!! I called it " The Horse " – my next vehicle after that was a black AWD Pontiac Torrent – I named her "Black Beauty" and had only driven her a few months when I had an accident – I was not hurt , but BB was very severely injured and had to be "put down".
For the last 7 years I have been driving a red Dodge Journey going by the name of "Big Red " .
Vehicles do have "horsepower " – don't they ?

Hi Lynn,I almost did not post pics as so many times I see people post a pic and then shortly after they have been in a wreck, so knock on wood, I hope to God that does not happen. I am sorry that your BB was put down. But so glad you were not hurt. My Nitro was great and I hope I get as many happy years out of my new one and more!!! Yes I love that engine sound when I put on the gas. Hugs, Di
