"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... I can always find it in a parking lot; I get to wave at lots of people; Seniors love to ride in it; It makes people smile; The art car people I hang with in Seattle are really cool artists; It makes kids on the corner waiting for the school bus jump up and down, wave and cheer."
