Our Cars: Que Sera, Sera

Joana Fidalgo | Engineer


20 October 2023

I am not one to believe in the supernatural. In fact, the engineer in me finds a lot of comfort in the logical explanations for the phenomena of our world. This is not to say that I am not impressionable: once in a while I’ll see something that might make me question my own eyes. But, for the most part, I am a non-believer.

I do, however, believe in the power of manifestation to a certain degree. I can assure you that no amount of positive thinking, crystal cleansing or sage burning will ever see me through to owning a Lamborghini Miura SVJ. I could stare into a mirror and tell myself all day long I am wealthy enough to do so, but the only person I’d be kidding would be the one looking right back at me. However, I believe in human connection. I believe that if you put your thoughts out there, sometimes the waves travel far enough to connect you to the right people to help you make your (not entirely realistic) dreams come true.

Just to reassure you before you start worrying that things might be about to get rather strange, I want to make it clear that, yes, this is still The Intercooler you are reading and, oui encore, I am still 100 per cent talking about cars. In fact, everything you’ve read so far is just my way of coming back, tail between legs, to tell you I’ve added yet another vehicle to the fleet. And without wanting to turn this into an overused catchphrase, I really did not intend to do so – and this time, hand on heart, I really, truly mean it. But I can’t avoid the fact that there’s now a Toyota Sera parked outside; and it is mine.
