So @DrivingMidwest was impressed with what I did with the Chevy Volt, they asked me if I wanted to test drive another car. Seeing how I spent just under $1000 this year on car maintenance, I had no qualms test driving a new car. Oh to remember the days when my car smelled like new and not farts now.
When the Chevy Sonic was delivered to me at work on Thursday, I couldn’t help but smile. It was Orange.
Now I know orange is not your typical car color but I have a thing for the color. Orange was my favorite color growing up. Orange & Blue were my Fighting Illini’s colors. And orange works perfectly for Halloween.
Too bad the Illini football team was playing away this weekend, otherwise I would have driving it down to Chambana & paraded this orange buggy down Green St and all through campus. I would have totally owned college football this weekend. But alas, since it was an away game, I did the next best thing. I went for Halloween tricks.
I dressed up my Chevy Sonic as a jack-o-lantern, picked up my friend Dave (@rookiephenom) and we drove around Chicago tweeting & Trick-or-Treating everyone we could find.
We drove all around Chicago giving candy to little kids, drunken 20-somethings, other cars, a wedding party & even a segway gang. It was a lot of fun, but it wasn’t until we were more than 3/4 through when we realized yell, “Free candy!” from a car was actually kinda wrong. Okay, very wrong. But at least we had good intentions.

That being said, I’d like to thank @DrivingMidwest for this fun opportunity. I hope everyone have a safe & fun Halloween.
