Impatiently awaiting my new ride

By Blogger on 12 Dec 2010

Not too long ago, I paid my final tribute to a trusty friend on this blog. And like the saying goes, "out with the old, in with the new". As a replacement for my trusty ride, I will be welcoming a spanking new Suzuki Swift Sport some time within the next week. Now, the wisdom of buying a new car at record high COE prices or the debate over the Swift Sport are all topics that have been discussed on this blog. So, let us leave those topics aside. Today's post is all about the pre-car collection excitement that I have been experiencing.

Now this is by no means my first ride; but, somehow, I am still feeling that same amount of excitement and impatience that I felt years ago when I was waiting for my very first ride. I am trawling the Internet for facts, info and potential modifications. I am mentally drawing up plans for all the stuff I intend to do to it. Lets just say that it is gonna be a pretty long Xmas wishlist that Santa will be getting from me this year! Honestly, words can't really describe this heady mix of excitement and impatience that is surging through me as I count down to car collection.

I guess I really am a bit (or a lot) of a car freak!

Well, anyway, I have been wondering if I am the only freak who gets this jumped up about collecting a new car. This is because when my Dad got his new car, he was a picture of calm. The 3 month wait didn't bother him one bit. In fact, his reaction when informed by the SE that his car could be collected earlier, his reaction was "So fast?". And I am guessing that his attitude is probably the predominant one among Singaporeans. The car is more of a transportation tool and is just like buying a household appliance. Nothing particularly exciting about it. Even less so, if you already have a car to use.

Or does it have to do with how much you desire the incoming car?

So here's my question to all you readers, which camp do you belong to? Freaks or utilitarians? [laugh]

In the meantime, I am off to continue the (agonizing) count down to my car collection. Until next time!
