What Is Your Mom’s Dream Car?

For the longest time, my mom’s dream car was a Jaguar. Not any model in particular; she just wanted a Jaguar. Her first car was a black 1959 Rambler with a red interior that her parents bought used, the signature spare tire sitting on the back bumper. She has the same fond memories of her Rambler as I do of my Spanish Gold Metallic 1977 Dodge Aspen land yacht, except that hers was far more attractive.

A Jaguar or a Mini Cooper appealed to her most for many years, and she has also always loved the 1950s and 60s Corvette body styles. When my parents were first married, they had a 1966 Corvette in Milano Maroon and they had a few good years in it before I was born, sometimes carting my older cousin Patricia around in the tiny space between them.

Mom and Dad are big General Motors fans and have had a GM credit card that gives them credit toward a vehicle for many years now. As a result, they’ve had a steady stream of Oldsmobiles, Buicks, and Chevys for as long as I can remember. Even now, they have three GM cars: a 2009 Chevy HHR SS, a 2019 Buick Envision, and a 2014 Buick LaCrosse. The only non-American brand they have ever owned was a 1988 Honda Accord with a manual that my sister took to college and kept for quite a while.   

When Mom came to visit me in Texas in June of 2019, I had a Cadillac CTS-V as a press loaner. The Cadillac is a beast and she loved not only the 640-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 but she giggled every time the automatic seat belt “hugged” her.
