It was my dream car when I was a kid. I envisioned myself riding next to my “prince charming” down a tree-lined highway with the wind blowing through my hair…
Enter real life. With six children, we can NOT fit in a Corvette. We cruise around in a Swagger Wagon, which is comfortable and spacious and fast but still a minivan. A sports car is years away… or so I thought. My hubby rented me a Corvette for my Birthday. Wahoo!
Elite Auto Shares is based in Ponte Vedra Beach. When we arrived, Dan gave careful instructions and a few friendly pointers then passed us the keys to a showroom quality car.
So about that daydream… the one with my knight in shining armor driving? Yeah, we changed that up a bit. I drove this baby as much as I could! Chris said I drove it like my minivan at first… what can I say? Old habits die hard! With the top down, I could’ve been going 25 mph and still been happy!
All of the kiddos (well, except Clara^) took a ride around the neighborhood. Timothy was hilarious- he came out stylin’… I guess these are his sports car clothes. 😉 He asked me to turn the Bose system up and he held his hands up around the corners. Woo-Hoo! That’s my boy.
Then my hubby & I hit the road. We decided to take A1A up to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. He drove. The top was down. He held my hand (it’s an automatic) and the wind blew through my hair. We stopped when we wanted (details of our St. Augustine to Amelia Island Road Trip here) and got a nice tan. It was a Birthday to remember… a dream come true!
Father’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversary, or just because… you should definitely look up Elite Auto Shares. But you may want to plan ahead… I might already have the Corvette reserved!
