If You Get Hit In One, You’re Toast

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

I saw my first “Toaster” car today. I don’t know if it was a Kia or a Scion – but I saw it from the side, it was all white, and it really looked like a toaster gliding down the street.  I almost expected a big electrical cord trailing along behind it.  It was uuugly!

Remember when you were a kid and drew a car?  You probably just drew a box and put two wheels under it, right?  Well someone stole your design and actually produced it.  My friend said they’ve been around for years and was surprised I hadn’t seen one before.  If I had, I would have remembered.

OK, every car doesn’t have to look like a Ferrari – but c’mon!  A more  eye-pleasing design and a few elegant curves wouldn’t kill the damn thing.  Auto pollution isn’t necessarily limited to what we breathe – sometimes it includes what we see.
