After the birth of my daughter we decided that a convertible just would not do especially since it was a pain in the @$$ to take the car seat in and out of the backseat.
We first saw the "box" on 680 one day and we laughed at it saying, "I drive a box!". It was different, but we never thought about getting one at that time. Then when it came to trade in my first "baby", 1997 Mitsubishi Spyder GS-T I was sad (I cried leaving the dealership). Pics of my baby, sorry if they are big. And yes those are my Assasyns that I love so much...see, I love
My fiance did a lot of research on the xB and I even went to the dealership to check it out. I wanted to buy one right on the spot, but he wanted to do more research on it. We liked the price! Compared to the other SUV's and sedans, it was a good deal. (And for those who do know me, I dislike minivans! Just my thing so if you drive one or use to drive one it's nothing against you it's the van itself.
) The gas mileage, the space (I have a 2yo and 2 stepkids), the look itself and the potential modding (my fiance thought this at first then me later!).
But yeah, it all started out with us making fun of it, but in a good way and now we have one. That's why my plates say "IDRVABX" and my frame says, "Because Minivans Suck".
Sorry for the book...YIKES!
