The 1980’s gave us many great things – the Goonies, video games, fingerless gloves and the war on drugs. But I think it’s fair to say that one of the finest things to come out of the era is my Toyota Corolla.
Now, I’m not going to lie - I know nothing about cars. I have absolutely no interest in learning anything about cars, even for the purpose of writing this advertisement. If you want any sound mechanical information, you will have to come and check it out yourself.
Good things:
- I have NEVER had any mechanical trouble with this car.It always starts first time and doesn’t leak oil or water.
- Green colour. I normally choose cars almost solely on colour and I get good vibes from green.
- Radio / CD player. Like most people, I stopped buying compact discs when the internet took off so the only CDs I have are Good Charlotte’s first album and a compilation of Gregorian chant. You can have the GC album free with the car but the Gregorian chant is my crying music so sorry, that stays with me.
- New WOF, current to 11/12/2013.
Bad things:
- The car is lowered. Several years ago, lowering your car may have given you “street cred”, but now it’s just pain in the ass when navigating earthquake-damaged roads. Also, there is no power steering. On the bright side, I’m rocking some pretty impressive biceps.
- The front passenger window doesn't go down. I think this is a good thing though. Like most women, I favour a balmy temperature while driving which requires that all windows remain up and the heater runs on full no matter the weather. This also helps you get maximum value from your scented car air freshener. I currently have a nauseatingly pungent bubblegum flavoured one. It confuses my senses – the combined heat and intense smell make me want to vomit but at the same time, the sickly sweet scent makes me salivate and think of rainbows and unicorns.
- The car has peeling paint on the bonnet/ whole body. I feel this one could also be a positive thing as well as I’m sure peeling paint repels car thieves.
