My Car's Life as a Truck

mosaic mobile

I made what may be the final dump run for the kitchen remodel (which is not to say there won't more for other projects), with my little VW Golf stuffed to the gills with bits of wood, old drywall, and scraps of clean drywall.

On the way back I stopped at Orchard Supply Hardware for some more mud, and when I came out, this beauty was parked next to the Golf. It's not just painted -- if you look closely, it's bits of glass tile glued all over. The lump on the roof is a skylight which is covered, as are the back windows, so it's very colorful inside, too. Between the added weight and the reduced aerodynamics, it's gotta suck on the MPG front, but it's a beauty.

What a colorful car you found!

Laughing at your title. I call Ladybird "my car that thinks like a truck."

Your kitchen is something else.

I've had guys at the lumber yard take pictures of the load on the Golf. Though it's never been anything like this mess, even when I had the load of 20' rebar...

I can't be sure, but that looks like Karkopeli.
