Interesting Car Thoughts

Apparently, our Chevy Impala lets you know if you forgot to turn off your blinker. It dings and gives you a little message on the dashboard indicating which turn signal is on. I think that's pretty cool! What will they come up with next?!

I'll tell you what they should come up with next. They need to come up with a car that has a convenient place for a woman driver to stow her purse. Too often, when I have a passenger I have to ask that person to hold my purse or at least let me put it down by their feet. If there were a car in which driver's side door had some sort of purse-sized pocket in it, I would buy that car, even if it sucked in most other ways. Listen up, Detroit! I don't think I'm the only woman who feels this way.

Maybe you could convince Louis Vitton to make you a car instead.

My Altima has a center hand brake (with a convenient well on either side for cassettes). When I have a passenger, my purse goes on top of the brake, which is probably not the best safety choice, since in an emergency it would be hard to get to the brake.

Though in the winter I usually stow most of what I need in my parka pockets and leave the purse at home . . . That might not work as well in your climate!
