Breaking land speed records in the van

Well, I finally did it…the stupid Golf broke down again a couple of weeks ago (is it bad when a piece of the frame breaks off?), so I decided it was time to move on. It’s tough when a long-term relationship ends…but look at my shiny new toy! :-)

And yes, before anyone says it, I know it looks like a minivan. Here’s the beauty part, though: it’s not a minivan. It’s a micro-van. Micro!

The sisters had named the Golf “Milo” after a misunderstood U2 lyric, so now I’ve gotta come up with a decent name. I was thinking “Dimi”, short for “diminutive”, but I think the Grabber might have issues with that…

  1. Sweet new wheels, my pico-van driving friend! :D

    As for the name “Dimi”, even I have to agree I’d have a hard time explaining that one to my son!

  2. Mini, micro, it’s all the same, really, isn’t it? Ah well, I would expect no less of a family vehicle from our Volvo-loving friend!

  3. seriously though , it is kinda cute in a 50 clowns popping out the back of a VW bug kinda way ..

  4. Which is ironic, since this vehicle is my move away from VW…

    Kinda like rain on your wedding day…or a traffic jam when you’re already late… :-)

  5. Name it dodi just to piss off happy phantom.

  6. I hope that smiley is an acknowledgement of how few lyrics in that song are actually ironic.

    As for the ‘car’, does it at least change into one of the cooler Transformers?

  7. Oops that last one was from me.

  8. Um…sure…it transforms into…er…Commutimus Prime…
