Sonic Youth

My Neon always looked happy. This car looks pissed off at the world…

I posted back in January that my beloved Plymouth Neon of 17+ years finally had to meet its maker right after the New Year, and I quickly replaced it with a red 2017 Chevy Sonic.  Because I don’t bring a cell phone camera with me at all times, I wasn’t able to get a better photo than the crappy one from inside my garage that accompanied the original post.  While I was out taking squirrel photos on one of the few March days it wasn’t cold and/or raining, I took the opportunity to grab a couple pics of my new ride in the bright sunlight.  I had intended to post these sooner, but this was around the same time Gypsy first began showing up at my door, and she’s kinda dominated my Picture Day posts since then…

That just makes my car even angrier.

I’ve only managed to put 1700 miles on it since I drove it off the lot four months ago, which shows you how little I get around.  I found out the day I brought it home that the glovebox (glove compartment to some of you, and who knows what it’s called overseas) eats important papers for breakfast thanks to there being a large gap where things can be shot behind the compartment when you close it.  I just managed to free my proof of registration from the void last week after it had been stuck back there all this time.  That would’ve been a good one to explain to a cop…

Just a reminder… tomorrow is the day I will answer all of the questions that were left for me on last Wednesday’s post!  If you didn’t leave me a question in the comments, you only have the rest of today to put me on the spot!

  1. I miss my beloved hyundai too who went to cadillac ranch with the same age like your neon… the Gm dwarf we have now has a lot from chucky it eats not only papers but fingers ;O(((

  2. Nice ride…….at least that hungry glovebox of yours didn’t totally digest your registration; I’m sure a cop would roll his eyes and compare the “glovebox excuse” to the “my dog ate my homework” one! Can’t wait to see the answers to all of those probing questions we asked you last week…..tee hee.

    • Yeah, I’d not only get a ticket for no registration, but another ticket for coming up with a shitty excuse! And then I’d throw the tickets in the glovebox so they could get eaten as well…

    Here’s an extra added bonus question: Is it true that you like big butts and you cannot lie?

    You other brothers can’t deny!

    We call it glove box or glove compartment over here too. I’ve seen a lot of American TV programmes (or “programs” if you will) and assumed over there it would be a called a “gun holder” or simply “car holster”.

    • LOL! I’m sure the glovebox is a car holster for a number of people. Given that there’s several different terms for it in America alone, I figured it would have a different name abroad as well!

  6. I love the license plate! Love the color. What a cute car. Good choice ES. Have fun.

    • The license plate would be cool, though it is Photoshop. I’d always wanted a red car, though not necessarily one that could be scene from the Hubble Telescope…

  7. I had a 98 cavalier for 14 years, then sold it to my brother who drove it for another three…we BOTH miss that car { he sold it when parking became as much as rent ….lives in chicago…. } 🙂 ♥♥

  8. It looks like all the cars we owned until we finally got the Jeep and we only got that because the snow was killing our cars — and us. Cut car. Nice!

    • The Neon was a beast in the snow… I drove it in to work one night in a foot of largely unpaved snow. I don’t know if this one would make it or not since we haven’t had a good snowstorm in several years…

  9. She’s a pretty little thing, isn’t she? Here’s hoping you enjoy her till the wheels fall off. 🚗

    It’s a cute car! And I don’t say that about many modern vehicles. So many are strange-looking but yours has nice, normal lines. It does look a bit sassy. That’s good! You can express disapproval of bad driving without lifting a finger. 😀

  11. Your car is cute! Even here, in periferia of the whole world, we call that box a glove box, hanskalokero, don’t ask how to pronounce it, our words are so long and difficult. A cat is kissa, i pronounced like in a lip, a like a car , but short.
    Näkemiin, see you.

    • My biggest takeaway from this post is that glovebox is apparently pretty universal. I’d have never guessed that since it’s called several different things just in the US…

  12. At least with that colouring, you’re not going to have too much problem spotting her in a carpark! Unlike everyone else who has dull and boring black or silver vehicles.
