If your car could talk, what would it say about you?
Taking a look at the Christian Brothers parking lot one can see all the different makes and models of student vehicles. Some are new, some old, but all are unique in their own way. Students and their cars can even share some similarities — if you look close enough the car can show little pieces of their personalities.
Mary Hynes (’16) shares what its like to be behind the wheel of her car 2009 Scion xB, or “a box car” as she says.
Mary got her car as a hand-me-down from her older brother
“He got to pick it out but I think it fits me better,” she says.
Much like her spunky box car Mary isn’t afraid to be different and stand out from the rest. Mary’s car is one of a kind — you don’t see it a lot, but it leaves a lasting impression much like Mary does on her fellow peers at Christian Brothers.
Jack Graham (’16), another Falcon whose car turns heads in the parking lot takes a lot of pride in his set of wheels. Jack drives a Jeep Wagner Limited 1989. He scored this rare beauty when his Grandfather retired and handed the keys over to Jack.
Jack sees a lot of himself in his beloved car. He’s comfortable in his own skin, not afraid to express himself in ways that differ from everyone else.
“My car is a lot like me, I’m kinda out there and a little kooky, so is my car. It’s different and attracts a lot of attention,” he says.
Jack and his car are very original — there’s nothing or no one quite like the two of them. The two are sure to turn heads either driving down the street or at next school dance.
Sarah Burbridge (’16) who shares a 2012 Mustang her twin Victoria Burbridge (’16) tells the Talon how her sister and her landed the sweet ride.
“Our mom wanted a Mustang but she never drives it, so it was passed down to us.”
Sarah explains her car as fun and sporty which are two words that can be used to describe her as well.
“I like to spend time having fun with my friends and if I’m not with them I”m either playing or watching sports,” she says.
Sarah and her Mustang live life in the fast lane, always ready to travel in style and grab someone’s attention.
The next time you look over and see an old woman behind the wheel of a smart car or man wearing an American flag baseball cap driving a monster truck, maybe you’ll be able to get a little taste of what their personality is like without even having to get out of your own car.
