New Plate

I get teased about my car at work by the guys and they say I should be driving something a litte more sporty considering Im in the mid life crisis age bracket. I initially bought my jelly bean to tow behind our motorhome, but after we sold the motorhome Im sold that this is one of the best cars Ive owned at any price.

Enjoy

I feel the same about my Yaris. Cheap, great fuel economy, easy to work on, and fun to drive.

+1 We know it's a great car. Too bad, most people don't.

I'm thinking when my plates expire in a year that i'll get a "45 mpg" plate made for mine... tho, by then, maybe i will have broke 50mpg.

I like mine BLU SK8. The only thing is they had to do it like this BLUSK8 so people don't always get what it says.

Read a little closer, the Yaris was bought to be towed behind a motorhome, like this...



So they'd have a vehicle to drive once they parked the motorhome somewhere.

However, the motorhome has since been sold; but the Yaris remains!

And the best part of it......no one wants to drive it. Not the Mrs, not the kid.....Its allllllllllll mine. I took my co worker for a ride and he said "they still make cars with roll up windows?" LMAO .. I love it.

Getting the tag by the state was not easy.

The tow bar connections are hidden in the front, but the electrical receptacle for the tail and brake light are visible. Boy do I wish I had a dollar every time someone walked up to me and said "how many miles do you get to a charge?" Ughhhhhh

Long live the Yaris
