Friday Pics: All. My. Friends, Know A Low Rider

Very important detail to keep in mind when doing a picture post about vehicles, take a picture of your own before it gets dark on the night before you have to post. Sigh. Oh well, it's not like you don't know what a metallic blue Dodge Caravan looks like. This is a pic from last year, we haven't had any snow yet.



What makes my man-van different is the toys. That's right, it's an Imperial Shuttle Craft. We support the Empire 'round here.



*Late entry from Blissfully Caffeinated: Dang it, I forgot to send in my car picture. It’s late, but here it is.



*Late entry from colepack: This is my favorite ride and where I prefer to be at all times! Had to toss in the socks since I can not *ride* without them!



Gimme' The Juice: Here is my ride - No, boring mini van for me - This is great on gas BUT is a little chilly in the winter.


Irish Gumbo: I remembered! Check out my sweet ride. Nuttin' says 'playa' like a '98 Honda Civic. Jealous, aren't you?


Steenky Bee: I'm not offering a picture of my current ride because I think I've seen Goodfather parked in an unmarked van down the street from my house. I'm nervous that he'll figure out which home is mine if I show my ride on your site. But I will share with you my previous ride, a 2003 Ford Focus that served as the best commuter car ever. Then one fateful Sunday the family was just returning home from church (first time in over six years) when we were T-boned by a teenager going 45 mph. She took off our entire rear wheel axle and spun us around 2 times. I think I jumped out of the car before it even stopped and ran toward the teen in the SUV screaming "You hit my babies!" I've also included a picture of me during happier times commuting in our trusty little car that was just one month short of paid off before it perished. Lessons learned: I am never attending church again andGoodfather is one sneaky stalker.





Embellished Truth & Polite Fiction: okay, i'm actually participating this week! what's funny though is that now that my brain is not being so consumed by all that nanonablomofoblahblahblah that i've actually remembered to do this.. the topic is tricky for me! see, our lease was up on our van yesterday - so we are.. kind of.. between vehicles. so i decided to share with you some pics of J's totally rad skate board.. here i am helping sand it down for him after i cut out over 100 little diamond shaped pieces of grip tape..



This Life Is Mine: Even though it rarely takes me to work, it gets me away from it all on the weekends. The warm ones that is. Plus, what is hotter than a chick on a big bike. The answer: NOT A DAMN THING! I have been riding this beauty for 3 years now...


Crab Goggles: This is my Tony Micelli (Who's the Boss) van. I hate it, but it fits 4 kids, a large dog, two weeks worth of groceries and a double stroller in it, so I suppose I should be thankful.



Me & You & Ellie: ...although the word "vehicle" is too harsh for our beloved Westy. Here she is in the Florida Keys. Seven loops through the United States in seven years and 131, 000 miles. She rocks.



Goodfather: Here's a picture of my sweet ride, The Crapolla. Also dubbed Dr. Bland by my 14-year-old daughter for its remarkable lack of personality. It's been a very reliable car, but that's really the only nice thing I can say about it. If I get laid off from work, we're planning on eating it. I hope its delicious.




Mommy's Escape
: Since now I am not carrying an additional 30 pounds I am doing alot of walking and these are my new favorite form of transporation. Aren't they totally awesome? I mean come on! They are the best chocolate brown, wood heel, ankle boots ever!! And they do great wonders for my figure!! Now I know why Hubby wants me to wear them to...wait, too much info. Let's just say they are HAWT!



And since it's December we may as well just start the holiday pics now. How about favourite ornament for this Friday. Whatever holiday you celebrate. Then we can do pics with Santa and trees.

  2. Yeah, it gets dark here pretty early. And I had a brainstorm (scary!). Since I get to send you a pic of ME for my prize, I thought I'd send one of me at 20 posing on the hood of my robin's egg blue Chrysler Cordoba (yes, it had Corinthian leather seats!). Thus killing two cars with one stone.

  8. Man-van! Love it!

    Whatever happened to sin-bin? The kind with the airbrushed YES album cover copied on the side? What, you don't remember? Just how old are you?

  9. Y'know, I even took a picture of my van, complete with elk's head imprints down the side, just so I could send it for this post. Do you think I could find time to upload pictures from my camera this week? NNNNNNO! Maybe next week, I'll get my bearings back and be able to send you something.

  10. You are aware that I really drive a totally boring mini van - complete with the dent in back??? My "bike" it's a total attempt at being the cool mom..... I wonder if it working, yet?

  11. I would have submitted mine, but a pretty pink Ford Tempo just doesn't really scream, "Manly".

  15. I'm torn between the Who's the Boss Van and those delicious boots from Krystal. I'll vote for whomever let's me take their ride for a spin.

  16. Those are some sweet ass rides. I'd love a Westfalia like that. The boots? Too cute. I want those and Jenbo's jean jacket. I (once again) forgot to send in my picture, so i just ran outside, took one and emailed it to you. She's my baby. Her name is Lola.

  18. Jen, take the Tony Micelli van...PLEASE! I feel so very very uncool in it LOL!

  19. Mommy's Escape - those boots are HAWT.

    And Steenky - seriously, just thinking about your accident gives me heart palpitations. At least you took away a good lesson: Just say no to Jesus.

  20. dag nabbit. I was going to do this one because I actually have a picture of my car. Wendy - the Jet Black Princess Action Wagon.

  21. What a fun post. Good thing the kiddo is in front of the plate on that van. You wouldn't want *peeps* showing up from the states looking for you.

  22. Lurker here....
    Am I the only one who thought Me, You & Ellie's van had some sort of funky skateboard ramp attached the roof? Which would be like, totally cool!
    Anyway, hi! Hear awesome things about you all over the interwebs so I am finally leaving you some comment love.

  23. Robin, that's our *bed* up there in the pop-top. Which, I suppose could double as a skateboarding ramp. We'd have to park facing the other way, though, so the skateboarder could land in the Keys *sand* instead of the *parking lot*.

  24. I won't say that I'm going to participate this week. Then maybe fate will not be a prick and I might actually get to.

  25. Sounds like Steenky Bee should stay away from church.

  26. I wish I had a picture of my old
    super car, u may remember the
    "Lada." Of course it did fall apart before the first 10,000 km.
    The front passenger seat did slide
    on its mooring in the first 2 months, but it had class.
