Tara Monroe, a Texas State student, got a DWI for refusing to take a breathalyzer test. As a result, she lost her license and wasn’t able to drive a real car. However, Tara still needed a way to get to and from school, so she found a perfectly good alternative – a pink Barbie jeep.

She bought the jeep on Craigslist for $60. And it appears to be every bit worth the cost. Her daily commute to school has earned her some serious street cred across campus. “This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame,” she said to San Antonio Express-News. “Basically, it was the best decision I’ve made in college, yet.”
