Most of the time, I use interesting architecture, but this car just stands out. Is there anyway anyone would miss this car coming down the road or mistake it for another car? I confess, I’m not a car-watcher. (Well, the occasional ‘Stang or Jag, but I digress.) Even I would have no trouble at all identifying this car. And I won’t even touch the fact that the makers dubbed it “Smart.”
This car could really mean trouble for someone in a story. Imagine what would happen to it if a bear took a liking to it? No, strike that. No one would be so “smart” as to take this car to the woods. How about a train missing it by inches because it tucked in its booty. (Well, it looks like it tucked it in to me!) Speaking of booty, maybe it could double as a futuristic pirate’s chest. Okay, I’m grasping at this point.
Still, I plan to have fun with this car – well, as you can see, I already have, but I intend to have a little more fun with it. Maybe I’ll have my main character find a body in it! That sounds intriguing …
Oh, and just in case you’re curious–putting 2 and 2 together from yesterday’s blog article–no, this is not my new car. I’m claustrophobic, and me getting into this hot, tiny space felt like stuffing a teddy bear into a Hot Wheels!
So what would you do with this car that’s called “Smart”? I want to hear your idea, and then, why don’t you go ahead and write up the story?
