THINGS I LOVE ABOUT MY CAR

πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸš˜πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š
  1. β€’
    It's name "The LGH"
    LGH stands for Little Green Honda
  2. β€’
    Gas tank with no limit
    I have filled my tank up to 18 gallons before. My uncle told me not to brag about this because it means I was probably running on fumes.
  3. β€’
    I get about 400 miles per tank
    With a ten mile drive to work and a limited social life this means I only fill the tank once every three weeks.
  4. β€’
    The fire hydrant nozzle shaped dent in the rear bumper.
    I didn't have my license yet. I was driving with sibling-whose-identity-shall-never-be-revealed through the Slopes and had to make a U turn. We backed into a fire hydrant.
  5. β€’
    Wolverine scratches on drivers side back door.
    This could have been caused by a jerk high school classmate who didn't leave a note OR pulling in to the garage too right and hitting the exposed brick OR a chance encounter with Wolverine. You decide.
  6. β€’
    Alumni stickers
    Who am I? A mother of several children? A huge supporter of the A10? The youngest sibling reaping the benefits of the family car no one needs to drive anymore because they are being proper adults and driving cars ofo their own purchase?
  7. β€’
    Clock/Hawk
    Apparently it being on even if the car is off is a novelty? But I set it 7 minutes fast so I'm never as late as I probably would be. I tried to remove my poorly adhered university sticker. Failed. Put the hawk on my dash.
  8. β€’
    "CCORD"
    This recently fell off. The "A" fell off years ago.
  9. β€’
    Pencil eraser sized cause of flat tire.
    My reminder not to drive over debris after storms.
  10. β€’
    Check engine light
    My most faithful companion because it's always there. Except for the three days where it needed to stay off so that I could pass my inspection.
  11. β€’
    Gas gauge/light
    Neither the light not the gauge are functional. But it's a good estimate! Ive only run out of gas once!
  12. β€’
    Gas log
    Although kept on my phone this is vital.
  13. β€’
    Music
    Careoke is the most important part of driving or being a passenger in the LGH. CDs must be on hand for tunnels. The music doesn't stop.
  14. β€’
    Coasting
    My commute is hill after hill after hill. If I get enough momentum (surprisingly not that much) I will slide down a hill and halfway up the next. Very little braking or gas pedaling required.
  15. β€’
    Nostalgia
    Riding since 1998. πŸ’š Driving since 2007.
  16. β€’
    The bond we have after surviving the summer of "full stop = no acceleration for thirty seconds"
    I never stopped at a stop sign. At red lights I didn't even have to hold the brake, the care just stayed put on it's own!
  17. β€’
    AC and Heat only works on highest setting and even then it's a struggle.
    I am used to this, my companions are not. In winter I alternate hands driving and warm the other under my thigh. In summer it's a windows down paradise. This also affects the defrosting rate of frozen windows so an extra long and effective scraper is an absolute must.
