Intensive Start!

Starting the new semester has felt a bit like a road race, but my motor seems to be purring along nicely with only a few minor sputters and backfires.  I think with another few days under my belt, I will have my engine going at a comfortable and stable RPM level.  Perhaps a goofy, "Barbara Walter's-esque" style question is in order:

If I were a motorized vehicle, what would be be? 

Hmm. 

For me, it is hard to narrow down to one vehicle, so I will name myself as two different vehicles each reflecting a part of my personality:

1.  Traditional Volkswagen Beetle, probably a 1953 split window -  sort-of frumpy, but steady and reliable, and the split window gives it a bit more pizazz:



2.  A 1963 Studebaker Champ Pickup Truck - the last year for Studebaker trucks, so it was the end of an era.  But the body, cab, and tail end had a unique look even for its time.  The interior was fairly general, but nice and clean as well:
