Sitting at the airport...

5 posts in this topic

Coming back from a too-short vacation in the Florida Keys, where I went to my 20th HS reunion in my old hometown of Marathon. Had a great time, fun to see how everyone is doing, where they are living, etc. Hot and humid, sunny...had a nice ocean view from my beachfront hotel. Had an '08 Sebring conv. rental, strange car. Odd proportions.. Huge decklid, tiny trunk (the convertible top takes up about 1/2 of the trunk). The operation of the top is slick, no manual handles to release on the windshield header, just one button to raise and lower the top and windows (a bit slow up and down, though). The glass rear window is nice. The plastics are a bit hard and have some wide gaps, but for a cheap car it's not bad. Drove w/ the top up, top down, and for a while, top up with the windows all down, felt like an old-time hardtop. Drove well enough, smooth and enough power to get around in. About a 4/12 hr flight (turned out closer to 5 hrs) from Fort Lauderdale to Phoenix here in an hr or so...laptop battery running low..

PS--after living for over 10 years in very dry places, the humidity of July in S. Florida about wore me out...but I took care of things w/ mojitos and beer. Had a good Cuban sandwich in Miami Beach Friday.)

After 20 years, it's fun to see how people have changed...some I didn't recognize, like the 1988 vintage hotties that aren't so hot any more (though a couple are really good looking MILFs now.. :)

Sounds like fun! I missed my high school reunion as my brother got married on the same day.

I just got back from a vacation myself, in Barbados. Always interesting being in a RHD country, but GM had next to no cars on the road there. Suzuki and Toyotas were everywhere. I didn't know there were 2 door current Grand Vitaras manufactured.
