Do you guys remember my genius plan to have a neighborhood test drive for my Toyota Women’s Influencer Network project? Yeah, it mostly didn’t happen. Part of it was my fault, I thought I was going to get a Toyota to borrow for my family road trip so I didn’t jump on it, then that didn’t work out and I actually went on my family road trip in my old car and when I got home all of my neighbors went on vacation.
Did I mention that my road trip may have killed that car and now I need a new one? (Story on that forthcoming. Still too traumatic to talk about.)
Well, one of my friends not only e-mailed me promptly about having a Toyota – a convertible Toyota – that she was willing to let me test drive, but she was also still in town this week. She isn’t one of my neighbors, but I wish she was. I really like her, and her husband barbecues a lot and they have a special fridge just dedicated to beer and wine.
They would be the perfect neighbors.
Anyway, we set up a date and a time and she brought her Toyota with her and handed me the keys to her Toyota Solara convertible.
It was really fun. I haven’t driven a convertible in a long time and it was a beautiful day.
The car handled fabulously. Shut up. That is a word. Jean even let me take it out on 395 and drive fast. Vroom vroom! It had great pick up and she says she loves her car after four years.
Of course they don’t make them anymore.
Then we went to lunch where we realized that we forgot to take pictures during our test drive.
So we did these fake photos afterwards.
