Our Secret Car Crush

tumblr_oi4muc8BQh1rn1cuzo1_1280Growing up in a contemporary artistic family had many positive sides.
My parents were open minded, our big house had room for a swing
in the livingroom, a climbing wall, we could cycle through the house.
Not too many strict rules.

The girl and her brothers, at that age, had not many complains

Then the girl, me, became a teenager.
Besides by being embarrassed by my artist dad,
which I think is quite normal for a teenager…
I was embarrassed as well about some car choices
my parents made.
Can you imagine…

Volvo Amazon, 245 GL
Citröen HY, DS, 2CV
Rover  P5B 3.5 litre
Landrover Defender

Obviously not a very objective vision,
because they were cool
and later happen to be stunning wannahave-cars.
The main reason for this:
quite some time the car broke down while touring.
With that in the back of my mind
I’ve created an aversion against vintage cars.
Just wanted them to do the job,
by getting me somewhere.
Thanks dad!

But if you think my only wish is to just drive any car
which for sure would bring me from A to B,
then you’re wrong…
The interest in innovation, design
and the exterior looks is extremely big!
Much bigger. I have to admit.

So… OUR SECRET CAR CRUSH was born!

Secret because I also grew up with values like
‘be kind to our planet’,
‘don’t be too greedy’… Share…
How can you admire a machine
which polutes the planet?
Car crush because I can really admire
a particular car design or car brand.
And then a little devil in my head says…
No, all no good for the planet.
Owwwwww….

You can understand I’m extremely happy
and thankful for the rise and shine of electric cars
at most of the car brands…
For sure for the heart we have for our planet…
but it also…
… makes me feel less guilty.

Even without the electric cars (being common yet),
the best of both worlds is
just writing about cars, test-driving
and writing reviews in my own way!
And not be the owner.
I can be objective in a good way.
Give a visual opinion.
Get input from the technical sides,
without boring you…
And photograph it in our own way too,
to make the story complete.

Cars which are just cool, beautiful, wannahaves
for yes ‘a independent woman with kids’, haha!
In contemporary pantone-colours. Hallelujah!

No, this is not shallow…
This is heart for design,
and innovation.
And… Freedom!

You have to drive them to football
or swimming lessons, to birthday parties
or to the grandparents anyway.
Eighter way I want to make quite sure
it is fast and getting me there,
looking contemporary beautiful.
And is just comfortable enough.

Comfortable as in
an automatic…
+
The luxury of a button or sensor
which opens the backdoor automatically
when you’re arriving with all the groceries…
Heavenly cool!

So, soon you can expect our first review ever
of such a COOL WANNAHAVE CAR
(we were able to test last november);
The MINI Cooper S ALL4 Clubman
