Before my Juke I had my Sonic, it was a good car. It was the stepping stone for me as a car enthusiast. I liked it, but did not love it. Then I got my Juke, it completely changed me as a person & an enthusiast.
It may sound weird the a crossover would do that, but it did. The engine, the transmission, & how it drives. It’s also the reason I started going to Cars’n’Coffee, track day(s), & Auto-X soon. Looking at it makes me want to drive, I’ll press lock on my key fob multiple times to make it’s locked (& to look at it). It’s why I want to find the most twisty back road, I let it do its thing.
It’s also changed me as a person. Before I had it I never got out to meet people. Since I’ve had it I’ve got out way more, it has has helped me meet great people. Wether it be Cars’n’Coffee, the track, etc. Without it I would not have the friends I have. It’s also the reason I’ve joined this great blog, I wanted to show it off. I’m more happy too since I’ve had it, that I like. I still have personal issues that will take a long time to fix, but getting in my Juke makes me forget them.
My Sonic was a car, but the Juke is MY car. It’s MY Juke. It’s the best Juke. The NISMO RS has better specs, but it’s not MY Juke. I’ll be that person that keeps it for 25+ years (laws permitting) then sells it when no more exist. Some(lots) may call it ugly, I refer it as my automotive pimple as a joke. There are better cars for the amount of money it cost it, but those don’t work magic on me like MY Juke.
How has your car/truck/van/suv changed you as an enthusiast & person?
