The New York Auto Show has something for everyone. Whether it is concept cars, family friendly mini vans, or immersive experiences- the auto show is something that every woman should experience, with or without her family. We took a walk down memory lane and chatted about our first cars, what we look for in a car and our commute ahead of the auto show.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE IT?
@tarametblog My 1st car was a Honda Accord w/ over 100k miles. It was my mom’s old car and she got a new one when I started driving.
@xoxoLizza My first car was a MANUAL white convertible Saab!! I was 16 &loved the color & the feeling you can only get driving stick!
@bobettacj A 1970 Toyota Corolla….isn’t that great? Oh yeah, it was orange…
@SusanLStorey 1994 2 door Pontiac Sunbird- w/ sunroof. I couldn’t afford the Firebird! Loved that car for 7 years.
@TibsTravel Hubs first car was 1939 Plymouth, huge vehicle, stick shift of course. He was 16 in 1952. Paid $400.
OTHER THAN PRICE, WHAT IS YOUR TOP DECISION MAKING FACTOR WHEN BUYING A CAR?
@ConnieFoggles Did you know w/ a new car you can get mobility assistance? We got a ramp for my scooter.
@ramblingstump FILs golden retriever rides on the floor in front of the front passenger. Looks for room there.
@xoxoLizza Other than price, MPG AND design R important 2 me when buying a car.I’m in one 4 so much of my day, need 2 totally love it!
@primetimeparent I want a car that is the greenest and safest for my family to travel in.
@BeckyAdventure How EASY it is to clean! We are too busy for high maintenance vehicles!
@sweetmatcha I want a minivan that’ll be easy to drive + have huge trunk space too.
@ScottyReiss Excited to see cars that make my heart race & teach my kids to be car people.
@MomMostTraveled I really like the cute new four door Fiat!
IS THE STYLE OF YOUR CAR AS IMPORTANT AS IT’S PERFORMANCE? WHY?
@bobettacj My husband always tells me I get too emotionally attached to my cars. I even name them…lol.
@MomMostTraveled Yes and no, I have had a car or 2 that looked great and performed like crap!
WHAT IS THE COOLEST CAR YOU’VE EVER DRIVEN?
@philatravelgirl I did a nascar ride along as passenger on track -next time I want to do the race school and drive myself!
@kimorlando Coolest car I’ve ever driven: my BFFs brand new blue Camaro with T Tops en route to the lake (in 1981).
HOW LONG IS YOUR COMMUTE & WHAT AUTO SAFETY FEATURES KEEP YOU SANE & FOCUSED?
@primetimeparent I have a short commute but when we travel far I never go anywhere without my GPS set.
@AdventurousMoms The car seat connections, the hands-free bluetooth for the phone/radio… short commute 25 min.
@DebMomof3 I work from home so no commute. Am kid chauffeur lots of times though! Glad for ABS for sure in winter months.
@mulysa32 No commute here. Stay at home mom…Unless u count the 4 miles I drive to the high school everyday!
