The auto whine again.

I feel the need to reiterate my lament that you can't get tiny, cute, inexpensive, practical cars in America. It is also extremely expensive to import them, so unless you're a rich person, don't consider that an option! (Yes, I know about the Echo, but why can't they bring us the hatchback? WHY?!?!?) The mini cooper? Is very expensive. Sorry.

The Fiat Panda. "Sturdy and ready for anything." Except for driving on US soil, naturally.

The Ford Ka. Like a Rock? Oh wait. Maybe like a pebble. "Love life? Love driving? Then you'll love the Ford Ka." Apparently Americans don't love life. Although I guess we do love driving... but according to Ford, only driving giant gas guzzling behemoths.

The Toyota Echo Hatchback. You'vs heard me whine about this one before. "What goes in the hatch is up to you." No, what goes in the trunk is up to me, except that's not nearly as spacious. I sent Toyota emails but needless to say they don't think there's a market here for this car.

I'll just stick with my no-payment purchased-with-cash 35-to-40-mpg Ford Aspire #3. If I had more money, I'd buy two more and interchange them, putting 1/3 the mileage on each.
