She Likes The Cars With The Boom
I am the first to admit I was once incredibly naive when it came to cars. For years, I had no idea what rpm and horsepower had to do with how my car functioned, let alone that the framing and type of gas could affect the speed durability of my vehicle. It wasn't in my mind to even consider it. I was more interested in the sound system and whether or not the driver's side had a mirror in the driver's side.
But somewhere along the way, probably after having kids, I began to think more about how my cars operated and what they were made of. As a mother I'm absolutely concerned about safety. Nothing makes me angrier than when someone drives foolishly and I have my kids in the car.
Recently,I learned that the steel of today is much stronger than the steels used decades ago and three to four times stronger than the rest of the aluminum alloys on the market makes me so happy. That means my car is safer now than it was when I first became a mom 15 years ago. That makes me ridiculously happy even if I don't always understand how it all works. I do know that if anything happens to us we are protected and that makes me feel good.
You know what else I found out? The steel components used on cars are recyclable and allow for more sustainability for future use. Yeah that's right, steel products are able to be recycled into other products without losing any of their quality! Y'all, I had no idea. Who did? And as someone who is increasingly aware of the world I'm creating and leaving for my children this is something that is very important to me.
It's also important to me to have a car that is both functional and fabulous. I can't wait to check out all that Honda has to offer as I've heard so many amazing things about the Odyssey and what a great car it is. As our kids get bigger and they have more 'stuff' from all their activities, it's necessary to have a vehicle that fits it all. And has enough tech features for us all. Here in So Cal we basically live in our cars and because of our hectic schedule I am often in need of being able to do work in the car either while on the road to somewhere or waiting for someone to get out of practice. I need outlets and the ability to have the people in the back be comfortable and not harass the adults in the front about the music and whatnot.
So when I got invited to attend the auto show this year, I jumped at the chance. For as long as I can remember, I have been a fan of the L.A. Auto Show. It seems weird coming from a non car aficionado, but I love being able to touch and see all of the cars coming out in person. I like all the bells and whistles and how shiny and new everything looks.
I'm a dreamer so I like to imagine all the places I could go in each car. My dad and I used to go to the show every year and it's always been a favorite event of mine. So you can imagine my excitement at the idea of attending the show this year. It's been awhile since I've gone and I'm so looking forward to it. And, this time, I also get to give away some tickets so YOU can go too and hopefully make the same type of memories I did!
