The After Car

Post by Cocoa »

Post your speculations on what the "After car", that is currently hiding in the Cullen's garage under a cover, might be.

I have many speculations.
I think the funniest would be a restored '53 Chevy truck...but I don't think Edward would like it because it isn't fast enough.

I also kind of don't understand why she needs an after car already...since she isn't going to be able to go anywhere for the first year she is a vampire. (Well, she can go places, but not alone)

i don't know a lot about cars so i don't know if this is plausible. but i think its going to be a restored '53 Chevy truck with a faster engine to fit Edwards likings, but i don't know why it matters if Edward likes it since Bella's the one thats going to be driving it.... :)

I'm "Switzerland" in the whole whose better for bella, Jake or Edward. I think they'll both be a good match for her, but i do believe in the end she'll marry Edward.

I don't think it'll be just any old car. Bella is not enough of a car fanatic to really get excited about super fast luxury sports cars, and she'd just be opposed to extravagant amounts of money spent on her. Edward knows that.

So I think the 'after' car will have some emotional connection or symbolic meaning.

Well, they could makeover her truck, but it wouldn't be the same, then.

What gave that truck character was its flaws - the antiquity, the screaming loud engine and slowness and dull paint job.

They just might as well buy her a new car.

maybe her trucks not really broken for good, maybe Edward just made some minor damages so Bella would think it was done for and she'll get it back after she no longer needs so much protection....

But Bella's been human and just as clumsy the entire time she's known Edward. Why would he decide then to buy her a new car, all of a sudden deciding she's too clumsy for the truck? Besides, apart from being missile proof, that truck is really safe. Bella is always mentioning how it's the type of truck that always crushes other cars in accidents without ending up with even a scratch. Edward just didn't like it because it was slow.

Edward's a bit controlling sometimes, but he's not that manipulative. He wouldn't steal her beloved truck because he decided it wasn't safe all of a sudden.

i posted some where else that i don't think it's a coincidence that the truck breaks down, and Edward gets her a virtually indestructible car. i think something is going to happen that will put Bella in major trouble and Edward knows it and wants her to be protected if he isn't there because this trouble will be REALLY bad....
dun dun dun...
