With Thanksgiving in four days, I thought I'd share a few car related things I'm thankful for.
I'm thankful Route 66 lives. Someday I will drive the entire stretch from Chicago to LA--hopefully before it's over restored like a Corvette at a Barrett-Jackson auction. But it's good to see people taking an interest in a road that has added as much to our nation's history as the Santa Fe Trail and Lewis & Clark.
I'm thankful Chrysler, Ford, and GM live on and are finally building better cars. I'm also thankful for cars like the Challenger, Mustang and Camaro, which bigger cojones than Sarah Palin.
Likewise, I'm thankful for any car that isn't styled like a jellybean or a carton of milk. Cars like the Corvette, Mini, Audi TT and most Jaguars, which are pleasing to look at, if not achingly beautiful.
I'm thankful for the two Nissans my family owns--both have been reliable and cheap to own. Even with over 100K on the clock they still have plenty of life left in them.
Finally though I'm thankful for friends, family and a place to call home. They are the reasons for making the journey and the reward at the end of the road.
