CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

We all work so hard all the time and sometimes we need a break. We need something fun, something to spice up the day-to-day humdrum. So we go on dates.

Mini golf, dinner, the movies or competitive base jumping—these are all great date ideas. But how do you get there? Your car, usually. Or, the date happens in your car. If you’re not averse to eating in the vehicle, a takeout dinner in your car while parked at a scenic outlook could be a lovely idea.

Most people leave the house hoping that the date will go well. And sometimes it does! Sometimes it doesn’t.


What is your most memorable date you had in a car? It doesn’t have to involve the date happening in the car. Maybe something happened while you were driving with your date.

If you have one, tell me a love story. Make my day.

Second date with my long time girlfriend in my then clapped out E30. The AC didn’t run, had a sneaky issue with the idle control valve, paint was just grey primer, the tint was bubbling, tires balder than your gramps head, yet for some reason she got in that car with me. Drove to a Chinese restaurant and then out to a beautiful scene in the Everglades to sneak in a first kiss. Our first kiss literally happened on the hood of that car in the Everglades overlooking the grasslands.

Nearly four years later the E30 is gone and I am ring shopping for her.

Thanks BMW.
