Oh joy! Small cars a-plenty

Seeing small cars around nowadays gives me much joy. It seems like more and more people are doing the right thing. Suddenly, it's cool to drive a small car with great gas mileage.

I used to drive a small car when I lived in the Philippines. Used it when I was in university and eventually, when I started working. My little midnight blue Daihatsu Charade. It looked very much like a Volkswagen Golf. Regretfully, I don't have a picture of it. It's long gone now, given away by my parents when I moved to the US. Nevertheless, I still tend to like small cars. They're fun to drive. Parking is not that big a problem.

So now, it really makes me glad that people have wised up to the joys of owning a small car. Hit them where it hurts - an old adage that still seems to hold true. The rising gas prices have led people to choose wisely. I can't complain about that.
