My friend Heather posted this to Facebook yesterday:
Pretty great bumper sticker on a minivan tonight: “I used to be cool.”
I don’t know the owner of said minivan, but I hope s/he’s not implying that simply owning a minivan robs one of Cool Points. My first car was a minivan, a brown Plymouth Voyager with vinyl woodgrain paneling on the sides that gave it a natural, Bear Grylls kind of sexiness. It pretty much looked like this:
And look at how cool I was!
Now, in addition to not knowing the owner of the minivan Heather spotted, I also don’t know anything about the minivan itself. Maybe the minivan was styled in an uncool manner, like painted a puke green color or sporting bumper stickers that screamed the driver’s devotion to Team Edward. But the uncoolness doesn’t stem from the fact it’s a minivan.
In fact, minivans are can be cooler than you can ever imagine. Take a look at these sweet rides that possibly seat up to 8 and feature rear A/C control for everyone’s comfort.
