Alan sold his little pickup today. So now we only have one car – yeah, that’ll work! Actually, we’ve been trying to find a little economy car (my dad’d say an "econo-can") for me to drive, since I post the most miles…..and we really owe too much on the SUV to reasonably trade it in, so we figured; sell his truck for cash then buy something I’ll actually drive. I refused to drive his pickup (not because I don’t like trucks! I’m a truck kinda girl!) but not his – manual transmission (which would be okay but it has a ridiculously long clutch for my short legs!) and no air, and no power steering (no joke, I’ve nearly hit people when trying to pull into a parking lot because the thing is a bear to turn!) We’ve been looking around some, but of course any dealership wanted to give him a pathetic amount for trade-in value…so, we knew we’d be better off to sell it and use the cash for the ‘new’ car. And that’s where the headache comes in!! We’ve got a limited amount of cash to spend so that sort of limits you! When we find something, I research it online – and good lord, they all suck! Whether it’s safety, or recalls, or just generally not well made. Ugh. I’m not even talking about lack of good looks, because that’s a given that I’m not going to find anything exciting. Last night my mom’s friend said she was going to sell her VW ‘new’ bug – not what I’d really looked for but it’s pretty dang cute and she said she gets awesome mileage…. but then her husband said "no, it is not for sale!" Go figure. Old people. Lol.
Sometimes too much knowledge can be a burden. I don’t even want to look anymore! Uh, but, that won’t really work, now will it? Because I have places to go, things to do! Do any of you have a little economy car that you think rocks?? Let me know, huh? Maybe help me know what to look for?
