Dear everybody. I am now the proud owner of a Gherkin on wheels – aka an office green (seriously, consult wikipedia) 1999 Holden Barina. Aka. the least sexy car on the planet.
Despite it’s unsexyness, when I went to draw it for you it started exhibiting a bit of unintended sexiness… In particular,way I’ve drawn the gherkin, it looks a tiny bit like a… well never mind, because: IT’S NOT. Now stop looking at it, you all have filthy minds.
So I miss the Alpaca, and I’m not really all that enamoured with the Gherkin: ie. not at all. Especially today, when I found myself in traffic, next to an SUV, and a big ute. I barely came up to the tops of their hubcaps. Also, I’m back to tape-deck technology, and there’s the lingering smell of perm cream.
On the positive side it costs $60 to fill the tank, and mileage -wise it’s sitting at 35,500kms. So it’s not too shabby I guess. When I get around to upgrading back to a newer car I should be able to recoup a decent amount of what I spent, I’ll just target learner drivers and grandmothers with perms.
