Unresolutions for You and Your Car
If you want to be like every other person in the United States, resolve this year to work out, eat less pie and join my neighborhood gym.
But who wants to be like everyone else? Personally, I’ve never been one to make resolutions for the new year. Instead I’ve just tried to live my best and improve myself a little more than the year prior. This year, though, is different. It’s a new start and deserves some new thinking that will turn 2013 into a 365-page chapter of my life story. And to do that, I’m going to need some unresolutions.
As you might expect, many of those will be go-fast and look-cool car-related items.
Keep reading for some unresolutions designed to bring you, and your car-crazy lifestyle, through 2013 in style.
Are you a loyal Mustang fan? Go test drive a Camaro. Fierce Mopar devotee? Try an outing in a Chevy pickup. Sure, it might go against everything you’ve ever known and won’t likely change your mind, but maybe it’ll at least convince you to remove your sticker of the kid peeing on a Ford logo. Cause that’s just not cool.
Make Stock Not Good Enough
You can always improve your car. Do something to make it louder, faster, better looking, more comfortable or more efficient than when it rolled off the showroom floor.
Spend Too Much Money
Don’t buy a Lamborghini if you can’t afford one, but fork over the fee to drive one for a day.
Get Someone Addicted
Take your son, daughter, niece, nephew or girlfriend to a car show and pass along your passion. Car culture is a dying art that needs new blood.
Drive It Like You Stole It
Have a treasured classic or restored collector car in the garage? Run it through its paces. Those cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy!
Wear More Leather
Don’t ever turn your back on your car, but maybe this is the year to learn to ride a motorcycle, too!
Do you have any car-related goals this year?
