A shiny black car draws a crowd

.


Two black cars in Ein Kerem on a Sabbath day. 

Not the kind of car you normally see in Israel.
.
Which one would be yours if you had to choose?
.
If you enlarge the photo of the Pontiac Solstice you can find some curving reflections of the village buildings and the Israeli tourists who flock there on Shabbat--for Weekend Reflections.

I would not choose a BLACK car in this climate. Never. I don't even have a driving license but if I would, maybe my choice would be VW
Sirocco or if I had to choose between these two, the Jeep but another color.

Hm, I think no 2 will do best at Norwegian winter roads and it is most practical. No 1 is nice, but would stand to much in the garage where I have no room for cars you know:-)

My practical side would choose the 2nd car, but if I had enough money I'd choose the shiny sports car.

Robin said...

I like the first one but the jeep would certainly be more practical around here.

Oddly, there's a black Porsche Carrera in my neighborhood this week. Definitely not normal for our area either.

I'd take the car, sale it, and make a nice little profit.

What kind of cars are mostly in Israel?

I'd pick the second one - not as shiny but more practical.

Hels said...

I would choose the car that
a] uses the least petrol and
b] is easiest to park.

I don't like that kind of choice, lol!

Rob Mandy said...

Not being naturally show-offy, I would choose the jeep, and have it repainted.

I was born to race, Dina... so in my impulsive mode it would be the little sport car (not in black, likely). But the long-distance traveler in me would go for the jeep. You had to make it tough on me? LOL! Fortunately, my honey makes the car choices, and I've never been unhappy with his picks (and we've had both sports and utility vehicles). Hope all is well with you, Dina! I miss blogging...

I think I'd choose the Jeep but I might change my mind tomorrow. It's been about ten years since I bought a car. :-)

Nice reflection post!

Nadege said...

I would chose neither!

Taken For Granted said...

FIne reflections in that sports car, but I would choose the Jeep. I've driven that model Pontiac and hated it. It looks cool, but disappoints behind the wheel.

The pontiac has its little success, judging by the people smile all around...

Jesh St Germain said...

The first is flashy, but I would choose the roomy and practical second car. Am surprised the jeep isn't commonly seen in Israel.
Happy New Year to you, and wishing you safety to you and your belongings!

Laura said...

definitely the second car... where I live it is most practical... and while I'm a romantic in many ways, when it comes down to it I am a practical lady:-) Happy New Year Dina, wishing you and your beloveds good health and peace, peace, peace.

We more and more of those cars here. None would be my choice though even if I could afford it. A simple and functional car would do. :D

VP said...

I feel really comfortable on foot, but both these cars are a bit too splashy...
