i plunged ....

  yep, bought the automobile.  yes, an automobile.  not a truck or a suv but an automobile.  the last car i owned was the 1980 ford mustang, which i drove the wheels off of ... it was the "college transportation " .. black with black interior and in 1980 no air conditioning!!! ( i traded it in with a case of oil in the back seat  -- it needed them) .. since 1986 it's been one SUV after another....

a 2 door grey one (the 1986) aka the "rolling coffin" .... enough said

upgraded to a 2 door green one (the 1992) .....

then upgraded to a 4 door green one with built in car seats for Nick (he was a baby then) (the 1996) ... the passengers thought they needed doors and grandma thought Nick needed a built in car seat ---

then upgraded to the black 4 door with the BIG motor (which i wish i still had -- i miss that vehicle)(the 1997) ... and it's still running --- haven't seen it lately but it's in town now and then!

and lastly the blue 4 door (which frankly i've never liked it was never as good as the black one)(the 2005) ... i bought this one over the phone....


     so in several months during the first winter storm warning when i need to get to the office -- i'll be driving mom's suv or dad's pig vehicle -- because they have 4WD ... i can see it now, me and the pig mobile ---

on the upside -- it's really cool, has a huge sunroof, and should get much much better mileage.... double digit mileage in the winter -- i'm not going to miss the awful mileage. 

pictures tomorrow!!!
