Well my Poor Purple Car isn’t dead after all. She was Dead on Monday Morning, and after a trip to the car hospital she is better then new! Pete and I have decided to get rid of his car and buy a new one together. Most places we go we are together. Pete hates to drive and doesn’t know his way around as well as I do so I am the primary driver. Which is more then fine cause I like to drive. So we are going to pass my car to him and I will primarily drive the new one. I am excited. It will be 8 years in February since I have had a new car. She is 8 years old and still going, so I can’t complain. I will miss not having a car payment, it has been 3 years since I have had one. But together it won’t be horrible. We are looking Toyodas, Hyondais, and Kais. These are all non American made cars. They have great warranties, and the quality can not be beat. My Dad is helping us look and told me a funny story yesterday. GM and Ford have gone to the government asking for assistance for their retirement plans and all and Mr. Bush’s answer to them was make cars people want to buy and you won’t have a problem. I agree. I have a GM now and while nice, the new GM’s don’t compare to the new offers from the other companies!
