I'm a Car Chick! And Proud of It
Welcome to the S-Curves! The place where women can gather and talk about cars--anything to do with them. Beautiful, fast cars...like the Wood Bros. No. 21 above. That's the one Trevor Bayne drove to victory lane at the Daytona 500 in 2011. Beyond Trevor's sweet, young smile, I spend time drooling over the red & white Ford. How does that come to be?
It's a lazy Sunday afternoon. I have a choice. I can put on a skirt, nice blouse and head out for a fancy dinner or pull out a favorite t-shirt, tug on some jeans and pop a can of soda. Why? Because the command to start engines has been given. I would much rather listen to the purr of race engines vs. neighborhood gossip.
I'm still a girl, don't get that wrong. I bake, crochet the odd tacky scarf, hug my cats and dictate the exact shade of cerulean blue to be used as paint in the new living room. I know what an impact wrench is, but prefer to find somebody else to use it.
I find the design of cars sexy, their sound thrilling and the smell of the track inebriating.
All in all, like most anybody else on the planet, I am a conglomeration of many things--none of which seem to fit into the little convenient holes society likes to place people.
So, welcome! Bring your enthusiasm for automotive anything, favorite recipes, tricks for keeping the family happy and your random feminine squee of delight.
It's all good here. For here we are the Car Chicks!
