Though I spend a lot of time thinking about vehicles as well as talking and tweeting about them - it's usually vehicles that are thought of as family oriented.
However, who could pass up a chance to cruise around in a convertible? A stylish, classy and eye-catching Chrysler 200. Our family of four had a fun week trying out the fun features and dynamically different ride that a convertible provides.
My husband was a little uncomfortable in the car. At 6' 3", he requires more leg room. So, I guess the Chrysler 200 would just be my extra vehicle. I'll get to work on convincing him of that!
We cruised the country roads and enjoyed the fresh air. We drove by and thought about joining the ladies and gentlemen showing off their classic vehicles at a local parking lot. (Which they do every weekend in the Summer) They turned and stared as we drove by... as did a lot people! My mother assured me that it was the vehicle they were turning to see... and not me.
But we continued on. We had big plans!
What were they? The drive in of course!
Because that is where you take a convertible.
I've been to the drive in once or twice. However, you haven't been to the drive in until you've gone in a convertible.
It was so much fun enjoying a movie in the open air while getting to glance up and take in the stars occasionally. I even looked up just in time to see a falling star during the movie.
It was definitely a fun week. I did not enjoy driving it with the top up. It's a convertible, why waste a trip with the top up! So we had it down at all times. Except for that time when it rained. As always, we took every opportunity to get out and put the vehicle to a driving test. Trips through the state park. A stop or two at the grocery store. Driving by the homes of various friends and family to show off the Chrysler 200. "Is that a Sebring?" some asked. Nope, it's the new thing!
For a moment, the kids thought mommy had super powers due to the remote starter.
The Chrysler 200 has an MSRP starting at $26,955.
