Ruined My Car

I ruined the Mini Cooper. No, I wasn’t in a car accident. That’s fixable. No, I have a smell in my car… and I don’t think it will ever be the same. There are some smells that just change a car forever. I know that the smell of cat pee will completely overwhelm a vehicle, orange juice can ruin a car and I can add one more to the list: milk.

My only complaint with the design of the car is with the cup holders. Interestingly, I have been in newer models and the cup holder problem persists. Anyway, I had a latte in the cup holder and it fell out. But I was driving, so I had to watch helplessly as the milk flowed out of the cup, onto the floormat, then up over the sides of the floormat, gushing into the upholstery.

Obviously, I tried to clean it myself. I took it to a car wash to have it detailed. I’ve also tried to air it out. All to no avail. The car still smells like spoiled milk. It’s driving me nuts. It is a totally disgusting smell.

Maybe this is a good excuse to buy a new car. I’ve been eyeing (and drooling over) a used Porsche Cayman. 2009 may be the year that I go for it.
