Sexiest Cars in the World, if you're a Wheelchair User

Wheelchair users unfortunately don't have much choice when it comes to automotive sexiness. It's better than it was, but still not terrific. Only a few vehicles can be converted into wheelchair accessible vehicles.

I've been thinking about getting a new car. My current van, the Chevy, is now 12 years old and has about 150,000 miles on it. It still runs really well; but I'd rather buy a car when I want one of them when I need one.

The first two times I bought a car, I bought full-size vans. My first car was a 1990 Ford E-150. I bought it because I thought I would be able to drive it. After purchasing the car I realized that there wasn't any technology that would make it safe for me to drive.  My second car was a 2000 Chevy Express. I wanted the Ford, but I couldn't justify the extra expense. In fact, I had to lease the car because I couldn't afford the payments. After five years of payments, I still owed $10,000.


Here are nine different models of car I was able to find that can be converted to transport my wheelchair. None of them are very sporty. They are a variety of minivans, station wagons, or SUVs. Thank goodness I'm married, because Babe Magnets, these are not.

Now that my kids are older, we don't necessarily need a full-size van. Also, each of these can be converted to allow for a front passenger seat wheelchair seating. It'll be nice to ride shotgun for once in my life. I've always been the proverbial "backseat driver". I will probably still give my wife directions and criticize her driving, but at least in the front seat, she'll be able to slap me. I think that's fair. Currently she can only glare at me in the rearview mirror, to which I say, "Eyes on the road!"

I need your help... here's my question: Which of these nine cars is the sexiest?

Ignore the colors in the photos. Let's assume I picked out something sexy. Additionally, in the case of full-size vans, they will be customized. My next car is going to be a luxury vehicle, with all the gadgets and trim. After all, I'll have to drive the thing for another 10 or 12 years.

Also, ignore your feelings about the manufacturer. Don't worry about quality, value, gas mileage, etc. I'm going to ultimately decide after thorough research, so I'm just trying to gauge the sexy factor for this exercise.

By the way, special thanks to Edmunds.com. I stole all these pictures from them!

  1. Definitely the Dodge Ram. Nothin' says sexy like a truck! Guess what my husband drives? :-)

    Wow! A Truck! I actually like the Honda Element the best, although none of them are awesome.

    Honda Odyssey...since I am a Honda owner and have experienced the quality and dependability. However, probably the Cruiser would make the cut for sexiest. The mini-vans scream "family car". Had several and they are just the ticket for kids and dogs. All depends on current (10 year) needs. The Honda will go 10 years and well over 100,000 if serviced on schedule.

    Yep, I think the Dodge Ram wins it, very masculine!

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.


After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.


Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.


Sometimes no caption is necessary.


But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.


I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.


This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

An open letter to Emmanuel Macron, President of France

Dear Pres. Macron,

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has been invited for the celebration of Bastille Day, a day for celebrating democracy and independence of the French people.

As a citizen of the United States, I encourage you to revoke the invitation. Donald Trump does not represent the vast majority of the American people. As you have stated publicly, if the United States is not going to support science, you have offered US scientists the option of emigrating to France for the continuation of their studies on climate change.

Additionally, Donald Trump has made his nationalist and blatantly racist feelings known on multiple occasions, again something I know that you personally find offensive.

The majority of Americans would support the decision for France to revoke his invitation. Citizens of the United States need to take responsibility for removing their country from a position of influence on the world stage. Our previous president, Barack Obama, strived to be a …
