If a car is an accessory, what would yours be?
Some say handbags are accessories, some say necklaces, others might say shoes, but how about cars?



this was taken when i was younger, saw my dream car on campus and took a pic with it.
just a simple pink volkswagen buggy would do..
as long as it zips you to places and minimal walking on those high heels! (means less blisters too)

Personally, I don't believe in owning a vehicle, but if I did, it would definately be this one:

Zooop car: look like a dork, speed like a demon

Pretty much camera-ready for a cameo in the next Steven Speilberg movie, the Zooop is everything you'd want in a car from the future, minus the coolness. Its round orange chassis may lull you into thinking the Zooop is just a brighter-colored version of other, slothlike attempts at electric vehicles, but these wheels were built for speed: thanks to the 150-kW AC Propulsion drive train, it's capable of zooming ("zoooping"?) along at 112 mph, stopping to recharge every 280 miles. Unveiled at last month's Michelin Challenge Bibendum in Paris, the Zooop isn't the product of an automaker; it was conceived by fashion designers at Maison de CourrŤges. Somehow, I'm not surprised in the least. The model that raced at the Michelin event was a prototype, so you probably won't be able to test drive one anytime soon. But maybe someday in the future bright-orange gasoline-free cruising will be available to dorkwads everywhere. You pals in their Priuses may giggle, but at least you won't be able to hear the laughter as you blow by them in your Zooop. ó Peter Pachal

A Lincoln Continental from the '50s or something... I don't know much about all the makes and models, but this one looks perfect:

The Zooop car looks cool, but I can top it: Saab Aero X Concept Car.

It's funny because I've never really driven myself anywhere because I moved to Manhattan soo young. Mostly I just use a town car/limo service or hail a cab...but I love driving..it's like riding a horse & sometimes I actually miss it, haha. If I had to choose something (I'm going to be nostalgic!) my "accessory"(!) would be the Rolls Royce Corniche..when I was younger I used to be allowed to drive my grandmother's car all around our house/estate/whatever and I'd have so much fun and drive my family and friends around & we always used to scream and have fun. So, it would bring back great memories! :] sorry to prattle! haha.
