Get Outta My Dreams…

Guest Post by Kelly Griego

One of the things that I’m over the moon about moving is getting to drive again. [Unlike the subway, I’m typically unafraid to touch surfaces in my own car.] While my budget puts me more in the range of a used Pinto, I'm indulging some dream car fantasies. If I had all the money in the world [or a sugar daddy]…

1969 Mercedes 280 SL. Ohhh beautiful Pagoda top, you are a sight for sore eyes that have seen only yellow cabs for nearly a decade.


1984 Ferrari 400i. This car and Ryan Gosling: Two things I've passed on the street that caused me to stare shamelessly and drool. Sadly, I have ended up with neither - yet. [One also got me so flustered that I walked into a fire hydrant. I'll leave it to you to decide which one.] There is something just so fabulously 80s enough about this car. But good 80s. Dynasty 80s.


What's your dream car?

Kelly I know a great place that you can get a "rent to own" '65 230SL! Just drop a line and I will fill you in :p

Definitely a BMW 2002 -- with round tail lights! Kate Spade used one in her Spring print ad campaign. I'm in love.

UMMM is my husband seriously trying to sell my most prized possession? It's a darn good thing he's in Africa and I'm in India right about now ;)

Nice post Kel!

I'm with you on the mercedes. I have a thing for the late 70s, wood paneled Wagoneer. If not that, then an early 70s Mercedes, sedan in a dove gray. You know, the kind with the big fancy grill? ya. I'd be thrilled.

JJ: Is it true? Are you putting your wife's baby up for adoption while she's not at home to defend herself??

You know my email, JJ. Let's talk. We have 1.5 weeks left to sign the adoption papers!
