When I turned 16 I dreamed of driving a convertible because well, I wanted to be Cindy Mancini from Can’t buy me love... to make a long story short my Dad being “normal” was like, “you want a car, buy it yourself” ... Good looking out Dad. The moral here is, 20 years later I finally get to drive a convertible and live out my Captain of the Cheerleader dreams (I hope you’re getting the movie reference, if not it’s just annoying) thanks to @mercedesbenzusa #mbambassador I know I will have to give it back but until then don’t think I won’t be driving this around while wearing a beige suede outfit! (Another reference to the movie.. ok gotta go)! Thanks again @mercedesbenzusa
