Junior Nick Burns sports a clean all black Ford Fx4. This beast speaks for itself. The dark glow that this baby emits really explains why he calls it the black mamba. “I have 5 seats in my car, so minus me I seat about an average of six people, preferably ladies, on the weekends.” The four wheel drive makes the car great for climbing the steep hills of Houston or the quiet streets of West University, “If you do not have a 4x4 then you should get a new car,” Burns said. The Fx4 provides thunderous roar. They say money can not buy everything, but Nick begs to differ. People attribute Nick’s ability to talk to girls entirely to his truck.
Not all cars are naturally beautiful. Be that as it may, junior Melvin Larkins’ green beauty is a machine of absolute prowess. In addition to being a killer slab, the Green Machine also doubles as a personal gym. You can catch Larkins in the garage in the morning getting a nice chest pump regularly. Although this car is a bit lighter than what he regularly benches, it is a good warm up. Larkins’ KIA is perfect for getting great gas mileage. If you ever want to go for a crazy ride, ask Melvin to push you in the car, you are sure to get an exhilarating rush. Rumor has it that the green color of his car symbolizes all the jebbies he has crushed in his three years here.
Senior Michael Hill is easily the coolest senior on campus now, with this red beast. After school you can hear his rocket blasting off from the parking garage at light speed. Although this car has the engine of a lawnmower, Michael swears it’s faster than any sports car. Some say that his rocket might look like a smooth ride, but very soon you will learn it is the furthest thing from that. Looks can be deceiving, but despite that Michael is not ashamed of his muscle car. He is a great example for all those who are in a similar situation. Micheal preaches its not about brand name, but what you have under the hood that really matters.
Senior Nathan Bartlett-Will’s sporty minivan is perfect for the party personality. Sitting a family of seven comfortably, this fine piece of precise Japanese engineering can easily transport evn the biggest of stick-figure families. The namely “mothership” is great for the entire community. Inherited from his mom, he is really proud of all it can do. “It goes 0-60 in 1.75 seconds, so do not attempt to race, or you might get smoked with the whole fam in the car.” Bartlett-Will’s favorite activity to do with his car is take his children to either Kumon or soccer practice and watch Gossip Girl in the back seat while waiting for them to finish. A little known fact, his car is actually featured on Kendrick Lamar’s, “Good Kid Maad City”.
