What happens when you ask a mom to test drive a brand spankin’ new Mercedes GLK with two kids in an unexpected blizzard? Find out over at MomAdvice.com, a wonderful site run by my Real Girls Media ad network peep and friend, Amy Allen Clark. Plus you have a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card each day this week over at Amy’s site just by commenting.

To sweeten the pot, so to speak, I’m going to hold a random giveaway for a $15 gift card to Cold Stone Creamery for everyone who leaves a comment here and clicks on the blog button below and leaves a comment on one of Amy’s posts about her test drive. I’ll draw a winner’s name Saturday and update the post here.

Just tell me here in the comments about your first car. Mine was a silver Subaru. I was a junior in high school and lived 8 miles from “town,” so my little silver car was my ticket to freedom. Then that car died and my dad leased a Chrysler laser with a sun roof for me, much to my mom’s delight (not) and I thought I was the hottest thing since sliced bread, driving like a  bat out of hell down our windy country road and blaring the Beastie Boys, Janet Jackson, and the Cars. Hey, it was 1987.

    I am not sure what is going on with the comments either. I have Internet Explorer as my current browser and can’t get it to work, either. I’ll try Firefox later today…I’m sure it will work out. It may be a Blogger/Google issue?

    I just left a comment on Amy’s post.

    My first was also a Subaru! It was a 1993 Subaru Impreza in a blue/green. We still have that car. My husband won’t get rid of it because he really like it so it is just around as a spare! It has 135k miles on it.

    My first was a black ’96 Honda Civic EX. That thing drove like butter and was the zippiest little car ever. I named him Dennis and had him for 10 years. I cried when I sold him. Oh the memories of high school and college in that car! *sob*

    My first car that was “mine” was a Dodge 600. I got it at the end of my freshman year in college. It had a bench seat up front, so my two best friends and I would all sit up front, crank the radio and sing at the top of our lungs! Unfortunately, I totaled it a year later. But that car saw lots of fun times!
