I agree, Ellie Ibis.
This might be a little off topic, but I find it interesting how the cars kind of parallel the person who they came from. Edward's cars to Bella are flashy and kind of... impersonal. The Black's truck (we can say it's from Jacob, for the sake of making a point
) has character and really matches the kind of thing Bella likes.
This can kind of be applied to the charm bracelet given to Bella by Jacob, but not quite as well.
You know what I would have loved? If Edward had went to Jacob to ask for car ideas for Bella. Jacob knows cars, and I suspect he has a better grasp of a car's personality than Edward does, and, lets face it, I think Bella and Jacob bonded over motor vehicles a bit more than Bella and Edward ever did. It wouldn't be too hard to find a fast car with the same personality and feel as her old Chevy, so long as you're patient and know where to look, especially with the Cullen's endless flow of cash to back the search. Of course, I think that would have wounded Edward's pride a bit, haha. Edward and Jacob car-shopping... I can just imagine that now.
I realize a Ferrari is a 'Cullen' car, but Bella is more than just a Cullen, and while I think it was supposed to be a statement of welcoming, it backfired in my mind. It was more like a sacrifice of Bella's personality.
You know, I'm kind of disappointed the Cullens don't have a greater respect for older cars. I suppose when you just want to drive fast, though...
EDIT BECAUSE I AM CAR OBSESSED: I totally like the idea of Bella staying in a 1950s Chevy, back with they still had that classy look. I'm thinking because as a vampire she might want to go fast she should get a car versus a truck since it would be easier to change up the insides of a car to go fast, and wouldn't roll over like a truck could. If you've ever seen a 1950s Chevy truck, you should know they have a very distinct look, and I think her car should be reminiscent of that (which, again, is why Bella should stick to 1950s Chevys.)
Personally, I would like to see Bella in a refurbished, and slightly altered 1950 Chevy Styleline Deluxe in red:http://50classicchevy.com/1950-chevrole ... eluxe.html
... I wouldn't mind one for myself, either.
