English term or phrase:auto-mobile
I dashed to the shop and bought you know what? My dream bicycle! I was now auto-mobile
Explanation: I think this is a play on words. The writer is so excited about his new bike, he's considering it as a kind of an automobile "a car".In Arabic, an automobile is "سيارة" or "عربة نقل آلية"; hence, in this context, "auto- mobile" can be "آلي الحركة/ التنقل".
