Last weekend, Jack and I went to test drive a vehicle that he would like to buy in the near future. He drove it while I sat shotgun. Afterwards he asked me how I liked it and I thought it was okay, but in my mind it was missing that special something that made me love it. I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was missing. Then I realized how truly disproportionate my love for sunroofs in cars is. I wasn't completely sold on the truck because it didn't have a sunroof. How retarded, right? Driving a car with a sunroof definitely helps me have an awesome day. I don't know why. In my humble opinion if the vehicle doesn't have a sunroof, it's only a shadow of what it could be.
See that car? That's one of the greatest cars ever- a Mazda MX6. It's great NOT because it was a fancy car or because it had gadgets, but because it had a sunroof, a good radio, and was manual (stick-shift). Maybe I'm biased because I learned how to drive in that car and obtained my first breath of freedom in that car. But more likely, it's because it had a sunroof, good radio, and was manual.
I am not sure that Jack realizes the extent of my love for sunroofs. I'm driving what he considers a very inadequate vehicle right now, but I love it... and it may or may not have a sunroof. He could give me a 1991 Mazda MX6 manual with a sunroof and I'd be one happy girl, but he doesn't know that. So I'm going to keep that our little secret. Maybe I'll eventually get something dependable.. with a sunroof. You won't catch me frowning in that vehicle (unless I'm broken down on the side of the road or out of gas.) Even that will be temporary because I could just enjoy the day with my sunroof open until my rescuer comes to rescue me. If you're thinking this through, just know that a rainy day with a broken down car is just a bad day all around.
What's your favorite feature on a car? What vehicle would you purchase just because it had a certain feature?
