Cadillac Eldorado - This brought back memories.  
I learned to drive on a ‘68 Eldorado Caddie, but it was not a convertible.  It had a busted speed-o-meter and no muffler and you could hear me coming. It was huge and cushy. You could live in the back seat.

This is a 2010 Orange Dodge Caliber - I just bought one of these for my city car.
I call it my “Pumpkin”.  It is a four cylinder but can move. It is so much better on gas mileage than the 4WD SUV I traded in.  It is clean and has less than 30,000 miles on it.  It has front wheel drive.
I still have my truck with camper shell for taking the dogs out hiking, so now I have a car for the week and a truck for the weekends and all my miscellaneous hauling, yard sales finds and hiking needs.
Anyway, I feel very retro driving it and it reminds me a bit of driving a segway around town.  It’s competition is cars like the VW Jetta.  It has a great AM/FM/CD stereo system and a plug in for my smart phone and I am all set to go. It has cruise control.  It has those allied rims and tires and takes nitrogen. 
I have never owned a Dodge in my life.  
So far, I am loving my Pumpkin Carriage.
P.S.  I was going for a PT Cruiser, but I think this better suit my needs since I already have a truck.
