Ruby Winkle, Rockford, and Bad Car Decisions

Writer and illustrator Meghan Killeen has a post about myself and A Taste for Red up at her blog. Meghan attended the Art Institute of California in San Francisco and hung out with the circus, which sounds cool. But what really sounds cool (at least to me) is that she once worked for a detective agency.

I was a huge fan of The Rockford Files when I was a kid. I wanted to grow up and wear sport coats and sideburns and cruise around town behind the wheel of a gold Firebird thwarting bad guys and tossing off clever remarks.

What person in their right mind wouldn't?

But I kinda shot myself in the foot when I bought my first car, a 1982 Toyota Tercel.
