My dream car is a dune buggy. Why? Because under my mild-mannered, Walter Mitty exterior beats the heart of a… … a silly, impractical person.
The first dune buggy I ever saw was in the Monkees movie Head, which is spectacularly bad. (My family must have watched it a dozen times. Story for another day.) Sources say the Monkees had a Jeffries Kyote dune buggy, and I’d rather accept that than do classic car research myself. Are buggies be considered ‘classic’ or just old? I don’t know the rules. Let’s move on.
Thinking it over, a dune buggy would only be mostly ridiculous for me; I live in the desert, so rain wouldn’t be a major concern. I don’t have much stuff, so it couldn’t be stolen from my car. I don’t have kids, who might require safety features like a roof…. and they can’t be that expensive…
Yeah, I’m not fooling anybody. No buggy for me.
What’s your dream car, and how would it mesh with your current day-to-day life?
