New Crush


I really don't give two flips about cars.  Point A to point B.  But I saw this on the way to school today and my heart gave a little jump.  Mr. Blandings will be relieved as a Ford Flex is a much better car crush than my last which was a Volkswagon bus.

Perfect pick to haul around your gang of boys, Mrs. B!! I have not seen this particular model, but it is really sharp!

I don't give a flip about cars either -- they are a point A to point B but I do prefer mine small and red.

I've had a couple of crushes over the years (my last was the mini cooper) -- have not seen this one -- it looks like the perfect car for a Mrs. Blandings.

I live in Metro Detroit where we often see test model cars buzzing around town before they hit the markets. The other day I spotted your crush in a creamy white and wondered what the make of it was. Thanks for the informative post. Very cool European look that reminds me a bit of an old London Taxi.

I rented one of the Flex's yesterday. And, I now have a crush on it. This was the neatest car that I have ever driven. It was as if, it was designed for me. When I turned it in, I told the car rental people that if it only had a cooler I would buy one. Then they told me you can get it with a cooler. My crush is now love.

seriously cute- i've always had a fondness for wagons. i have a feeling i'd still be driving my 1981 volvo wagon with 300k on the odometer, if some bastard hadn't totaled it while it was parked in front of my house.

ps- i will always have a crush on the VW bus, especially the old ones with the little windows at the roof line.
