Introducing Ida

Monday, February 11, 2013

For those who asked, here's the new vehicle, a 2009 Hyundai Tucson, named Ida after the first three letters on my plate. (Accidentally cool nonvanity plates happen a lot in Florida.) Bill's 16-year-old truck has the plate 412NVM, which, if you pronounce it, says, "For one to envy him"--an ironic description of the truck at best, but very easy to remember.

The actual Tucson is in the garage right now, so I found this pic on the Internet. The difference is that my car has running boards. They serve no real useful purpose, but they look hot. Its color is ambiguous and likely to frustrate the color blind or cause arguments. Sometimes it looks silver-blue, but seconds later you'd swear that it's silver-green.

So here's my car in the flesh:

    Nice ride. Now you just need to make a "riding" playlist for you to enjoy when you take Ida for a spin.

    I like the sounds of Ida, and looks like she has plenty of room for those roadside finds (I still look at Luna and wonder how you ever got a wing chair in the suzymobile, ha ha! My range bag alone eats up most of the trunk space!)

    Nice ride! I like the color.
Funny about the plates. We've never been so lucky. I rode around for 15 years with DUH followed by some numbers. My daughter was distraught when her first car was licensed with NRD. She refused to be a NERD. At the DMV when she turned them in (and paid an additional fee), the clerk yelled to a coworker. "Another one just came back!" LOL
