City A Confession
posted by April 23 at 10:26 AMon
As regular Slog readers know, I am a proud non-car-owner. I get around by bike, on foot, and by bus. Occasionally, I use FlexCar. Which brings me to my confession: I am in love with a car. Specifically, this one:
OHMYGOD, this car is fun to drive. If the regular FlexCar Civics are boring, rugged mountain bikes, this is a supersleek road bike—all you have to do is think about turning, and the thing turns. Even better, you can park it pretty much anywhere. And everything about it is unbearably cute—from the giant cartoon speedometer in the middle of the dash to the podlike rearview mirrors to the “tic-toc” sound it makes when you signal. Oh, and also? It’s fast. The best part is that it costs the same as all the other FlexCars—between $9 and $10 an hour.
The only disadvantage: Now I want to drive ALL THE TIME. Thanks, Flexcar!
