It's my little Duece Coupe...

Giddy up, giddy up 409...

I’m not really sure what this new thing I just assembled is supposed to be. It looks like some sort of paramilitary-all-terrain-Mars-roving-Cadillac-land speeder. This thing looks so cool I just may have to start driving it around town instead of the P.T. Cruiser.

It has a cup holder in the tray up front so I’m guessing the mother pushes me around in this when I get tired from holding the baby? Or is she supposed to push me around in this while I’m holding the baby? Man oh man this is going to be so sweet.

Check out the basket doodad underneath the seat. Tell me that’s not the perfect size for an Igloo cooler and a six pack of the amber colored cold ones? If I’m any judge of storage space I think there’s even room for a large bag of Doritos.

Wait until the ladies see me cruising around in this primo ride. Once I get the stereo system installed, and replace the stock rims with some spinners, this ride will be totally pimped.

D.N.R. eat your heart out!

Well, I’m awfully tired and I think it is time for me to head off to bed. I can hardly wait to wake the wife up tomorrow morning and have her take me out for the inaugural ride. Won’t she be so proud to be seen with her man riding around in this vehicle?

Oh you sweet, naive, well-rested thing! I can hardly wait to read what you write as you blaze your own unique trail through Parenthood. Baby Dirk will have a wonderful ride.

Happy New Year, Dirk_Star!

Sweet! Its so new, I can even smell the plastic from here.

PS: It's for the king or queen of the house, the Mommy or Daddy only gets to push it.

Do you have a license to operate this contraption?

Happy New Year!

Or you could use the basket underneath for the woofers to the new BOSE system that I'm sure you will install.

Oh and do they make off road tires for that thing?

Don't wear out that ride before the baby gets a chance.

LOL Dude, now you get to find out how absolutely miserable those things are to steer through crowds of people. I had one like that, then I got a smaller umbrella stroller that I loved, and this one went mostly unused.

Enjoy it while it lasts, Man. 'Cause sooner or later you'll realize how bigger isn't always better. (Esp. when it means packing & unpacking this thing from the back of the car, everytime you go somewhere.)

Hey! What happened to our Eddies??? Poof! Gone! Vanished! I guess that's the way of fame: first you're hot, then you're not. It was a swell ride while it lasted!

That's about the cutest post I've ever read. Forget how I found you but I began to smile as I read what you wrote. I'm guessing there's a little one who is going to be wheeling in fine style at your house. Sounds like a lucky little person.

Well, it goes without saying, pushing the little one around the park sans the wife will be a chick magnet.

Women are very attracted by the inherent "challenge" of there being no possible chance in hell that you will ever hook up.

Well, I gotta say, I love the hippy flowers. I bought a big Chevy van once and converted the insides to work and camp out of. My mischievou sister had a whole drawer full of these leftover flower stickers (all day-glo) and she plastered the inside with them. I felt like I was permanently in a production of hair.

What is with the comment moderation? You got enemies or high standards?

Hm.. not a bad model, I must say. I see you got the one-hand folding capability, that is definitely a key feature. I wonder though.. does that front bit with the cupholder come off? Or is it wide enough to hold the car seat? When we got ours, we got one that came with a car seat, so when we got the kid out of the car, all we had to do was pull the car seat out of the backseat, and it hitched right on to the stroller. But to some of the other commenters.. you think these sorts are hard to steer, try a 2-seater! My parents got us one last year before my daughter was born. The back end is huge to hold the car seat, then there's another seat in front of it to hold the boy (he's 3). It's nice though, 'cause now that my daughter can sit up on her own, she gets the seat in the front, and my son gets all the extra room in the back, lol!!

So what's a wild and crazy hippie dude doing procreating?
You sound so excited about the baby, it makes me remember those days. Now the crib is disassembled, the stroller is dusty, and the kids are in elementary and high school. Please post a picture of you in your new ride and congrats on the upcoming development.
