{Sayonara Fart Box!}

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Dear Fart Box (aka Tim's 1994 Honda Accord that smells like armpit),


We will miss your broken door locks.

Cracked & dirty dashboard.

Missing knobs.

Crunched side panel.


Punctured ceiling.

Wonky radio.



And missing hubcaps. You were our first date car, road trip rocket, and weekly grocery getter. Thanks for 10 years of making our wildest dreams come true!



That said, Team Loerke is greatly looking forward to making new memories in our PriusC!

So grateful to have a car that passed inspection, gets 52 mpg, and will only cost $325 a year in gas to drive. Also grateful for the wonderful sales associates at Toyota of Dallas! If you're ever looking to buy a Prius or a new car we highly recommend contacting Rick Nichols (nichols@toyota-dallas.com). He made our first car buying experience painless and fun. He will also do things like throw fist pumps and leg kicks next to your new ride.

Happy freaking Thursday, Homies! We're still working on a name for the PriusC, but any and all suggestions are welcome in exchange for baked goods shoved through my computer screen.

how funny-the fist pump with the salesman

Han said...

Love the fact that the salesman did leg kicks!!

Fart Box V2!! Then again if it's a Prius it would be nice and clean air right?

Ashleigh said...

Congrats!! We LOOOOOVE our Prius!!! And we save soooo much on gas!!

Drake said...

Pre! As in the famous American long distance runner from Orgeon...or Rocko. I like both.

Autumn Star said...

If you had a smart car, that would be cool because then it could be named smart box.

R said...

The Loerkus :)

Brooke said...

Wow. That car is/was awesome.

And I love that you got the sales guy to do a fist pump for you with the newbie!

Julie said...

That car looks like a Charles to me.

Abbey S said...

Oh my gosh! My Honda accord (Betsy :) had a missing knob there too! In high school I'd pull the remaining one off and switch it between the two all the time. Then my dad bought me a new knob. Kinda miss missing one, though. Gave Bets some personality!

JR said...

In honor of Rick, I vote that the Prius be dubbed The Rick Roller.

Serene said...

bahahahha. I love the tape player and fist pumping sales guy:)

Ryan said...

Fist pumps on a Thursday? Whoa!

Nicole said...

I was going to submit my own name for the car, but JR's suggestion was way funnier than anything I could come up with. RICK ROLLER!

two comments in two days. yay! we gotta get a new car and I was totally looking at a Prius. Is it really all that cost efficient? with a suburban as our other car we are looking for a NON GAS GUZZLER to be its companion.

Melinda said...

I like either HI-C or Vitamin C. I have no idea why, but it's the first thing that comes to mind and I only live 30 miles from you so I figured I had a good shot at getting some of your yummy goodies in exchange for a cool name.

Kym+Dustin said...

We have a Toyota too! Sadly ours doesn't get 52 mpg. Maybe one day they will make a pick up truck that gets mileage like that. Until then we will have to love her anyways! Congrats guys!

E said...

Congrats on the newest addition!
I hope to read more about how y'all like it. And, also, when you decide on a name for the little dude, too.

Brittaney said...

This is hilarious because A) I call my hubby's 2000 Honda Accord the fart box too! B) our fart box has some of the same issues as your fart box and C) you talked the salesman into throwing fist pumps! I'm hoping we can say the same to our fart box one day but the hubs is a little emotionally attached to it.

Donny said...

Love this blog post--the fart box car reminds me of mine!

The Prius looks great next to fist pumps and leg kicks!

My Prius (God rest her... She met the business end of a Suburban's tow-hitch last year) was named Priscilla, after the Queen of the Desert and for its alliterative properties... Now that she's gone, her name can live on in your new beauty...
