It's a weird thing for me to have to resort to the Friday Five for inspiration, but this one's as good as any.

1. What vehicle do you drive?

A. A gray 1987 Plymouth Colt hatchback held together by multiple rust stains, a few entomologically-oriented bumper stickers, and sheer orneriness.

2. How long have you had it?

A. Depends on what's meant by "you". Rick bought it new in (of course) 1987. We got married the following year, so it's been ours ever since. "The Clot" has pretty much been my commuting vehicle since I started my first bout of grad school in 1992.

3. What is the coolest feature on your vehicle?

The fact that it got Rick and me from Watertown, Massachusetts to Kalamazoo, Michigan; that move was the best decision we'd ever made.

4. What is the most annoying thing about your vehicle?

Well, it's a moody teenager, isn't it?

5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now?

It would be a smallish car, preferably a gas/electric hybrid -- and the steering wheel would be on the other side of the vehicle.
