Red, Red and More Red

Over the last year or so, I have become aware of how many red cars there are in my neighborhood.Β  At one point yesterday, I noticed that on my block and in the first quarter of the next block there were 8 red cars!

I wonder if my little blue Toyota Corolla is feeling lonely!

  1. I had a red Honda City for 28 years. Red cars are good in winter they hold the heat and are warmer to get into. πŸ™‚ But I hope your blue car is not offended – sometimes it’s nice to be different. πŸ™‚

    1. It especially stands out with the unusual car rack on it. My daughter and her husband put it on to carry their kayak. So far I haven’t taken it down because I love being able to scan a parking lot and see my car immediately! πŸ™‚

    1. At least my strange car rack has some red in it. Maybe that helps.

      I agree about Corollas. Before I bought mine I asked my mechanic if I should get an Escort or a Corolla. He said it depends whether I want it to last 100,000 miles or 250,000. Mine is already 13 years old. I don’t expect to have to buy another car.

      1. I have a Honda Civic which is 19 years old with 146k on the clock, and yet it runs flawlessly – all the electrics work as if new.

        You probably treat your Corolla lovingly as you drive it, and it’s rewarding you Karuna. Try not to let anyone else use it – it likes you alone.

  2. That’s a lot of red cars. I like the color of your car.

    I bought a burnt orange car so I could find it easily in parking lots. Turns out that burnt orange is a favorite color around here. And the body style of my car is rather popular too. I came out once to find no less than four cars that look exactly like mine in the same parking lot. So I covered my car with vinyl wall stickers (birds mostly), If I could include pictures for you here, I would. Needless to say, I can now find my car. πŸ™‚
