Do you think they will look at me strange when I take all of the coffee at the motel?

Good Morning!

On the Road, Again

dievca is behind the wheel and singing Willy Nelson while heading West.
she is wondering with people avoiding flying, will road trips come into fashion?
Is there a call for the vintage places of interest maps?

It might be worth it to stop and see something!


For a Deathtrap…it’s kinda cute.

dievca saw this car parked with its T-top open. she didn’t ever remember seeing something like it in the past so she checked out the brand.
Suzuki.

The 1996-98 Suzuki X-90 defies categorization. Neither fish nor fowl, the X-90 was a targa-topped mini-S.U.V. that had neither the utility of an S.U.V. nor the handling of a sports car.

AHA! dievca was living in Europe when this oddity was released —
that’s why she didn’t see it before….

IT’S KINDA CUTE!

The X90 had a two-seats and was small. dievca read that Suzuki needed a replacement for the Samurai and came up with the X-90. Apparently, from 1996-98, Suzuki sold fewer than 8,000 X-90s in the United States. Not good~

REALITY CHECK

Jeremy Clarkson of the BBC show “Top Gear” called the X-90 “the worst car ever.” A look on eBay showed only one X90 for sale and the price was at $3000.00.

Well, dievca thought that it might be fun to take it for a spin.
But the reports said it was loud and a bumpy ride
and not bumpy/ bouncy in a good way.

Too bad. dievca was looking for Diversity!
