Taste...

... you know, the personalization of an automobile is a time honored tradition... back when I was just a nipper and tooled around in my 51 Merc, I had me one of them black leather jackets like Elvis wore in his comeback concert tossed in the backseat as decoration...

.. but today?... all that is in my ride is a red plastic bracelet from the VFW.. dangling haphazardly from the rearview mirror... and on the lid of my trunk, a "Support the Troops" ribbon magnet.... but other than that, it's all fine lines and German engineering... unless you count the well-worn patch my ass has rubbed on the platinum leather seats as personalization'...

... the Wife though, she's lost it... it all began strangely enough... but now it has spiraled down to such a level that it leaves passer-bys with jaws slack and eyes bulging...

... the day-glo Sponge Bob floor mats were bad enough.. but at least you could only see them once you were actually IN the car... this morning she has gone that teensy step too far... where she found it, I'll never know... and I shudder to think of the backroom novelty shops she scoured through in her dogged search... but her car now is "complete", I'm told..

... she now owns a ceramic "Hula Guy"... and his little ukulele-carrying ass is ensconced securely above the navigation system on her Cadillac...

... if I didn't know better, I'd think living in the South is corrupting her... I'm going to have to perform an intervention if this goes on much longer...

Does she have fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror too??

... not yet.. and thank God they don't make those Yosimite Sam mudflaps for cadillacs...

I am thinking the blue neon lights, a nifty set of 22 inch rims, ultra thin tires and maybe one of those hydraulic lift kits so she can angle the caddie around a bit. Are flame decals still available?

.. it's a good thing she doesn't read my blog, James... she'd definitely be up for the flame decals...

do they make the "girlie" mud flaps for caddies? I would not begin to worry, unless she insists you start growing a mullet, or trades in the caddie for a trans am. Now that would be very "Smokey and the Bandit". Although, that might not be a bad idea....

just think you and Fiona, could buy a brown trans am, you could grow that stache you have always wanted...

I think you should post a picture - sounds like a sweet ride. Loving the hula guy idea...

Is she thinking of tacking a lovely fringe around the inside roof of the car? You know, kinda dangling down around the top of the windows like a valance. I've even seen fringed rearview mirrors. They are a sight to behold. If you think about it - the fringe would go with the hula skirt. *grin*
