Somewhat lacking in Dash

Chevy SparkThe little car in the little picture is the very small Chevrolet Spark, GM’s attempt to sell an A-segment car in the States. (What’s “A-segment”? Two sizes smaller than a Cruze or Corolla or Civic, which are considered C-segment cars for reasons other than starting with the letter C. In other words, the Spark is farging tiny.) TTAC opened up a discussion of this model, and how it’s reaching buyers twice the target age (mid-twenties), which sparked (sorry) the following exchange in comments:

noxioux: “This car is crying out for an electric purple paint job and a pornographic My Little Pony decal on the hood.”

Jellodyne: “And who better to do it than a 48 year old brony?”

colinshark: “You are mistaken. Decals go on the flanks.”

There are 48-year-old bronies? Who knew?

    Well, I’m 43. Only five years off. (Though I’m still not sure if I don’t prefer the term Pegasister.)

    I don’t know if I have (or deserve) Elder Statespony status, but I will be 60 next year.

    I found yesterday that two seasons of MLP:FIM are available for streaming via Netflix.

    When the “Tintin” (Canadian animated TV show) theme music gets on my nerves I can always listen to an even more annoying theme song.

    It’s an easy feat.

    Well, I’m 47. I guess I better order my purple car with Twilight’s cutiemark on the flanks soon.

    I actually contemplated that for a few minutes this afternoon, after first pondering the question of getting a properly Sparkle-y front plate. (This state does rear plates only.)

    And there was a humanized Twilight in front of me at the polls on Tuesday: lavender pantsuit, appropriately streaked hair. Flanks appeared to be blank, though.

    My car is red. And large. And I confess, I’ve contemplated whether it’s possible to find a large magnetic green apple decal I could slap on it.

    Except my car’s name – applied before I knew of the show – is Ladybug, and I can’t quite bring myself to rechristen her.
