Oh, what fun it is to spot treasures in the trash. I can’t help but wonder what decided the sad fate of this very fun-looking pink toy car, whose official name is the Disney Minnie Mouse Hot Rod Coupe Ride-On Toy by Kid Trax. While this polka dot marvel does not look terribly Hot Rod-like to me, it sure is a sweet ride. Let’s check it out!

Over the final weekend in April, Geoffrey and I went on an urban adventure to the Cherry Blossom Festival (aka Sakura Matsuri) at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and we had all kinds of crazy fun being outdoors in the beautiful nature, and taking many, many (read: too many) photos of the gorgeous flowering trees and other flowers and plants. Super fun!

As a tie-in with the festival,  event sponsor BMW (The Ultimate Driving Machine, as it is known) created a Sakura-themed car with a custom paint job covering the car in a cheery cherry blossoms design! Spectacular!

Here is a detail of the finish, up close. If you have been around an assortment of cherry blossoms before you will observe that they have many different blossoms represented, just like they did at the Garden!

I didn’t think to look inside the car to check out the interior, since the ground was a bit damp from rain the previous evening and I was trying to stay off the wet grass as much as possible.  Point being that I can’t say whether the floral design carried over to the car’s dashboard and upholstery.

A Sweet Ride, indeed!
