First of all I have to apologize to Gary at krikitarts because I got him all excited the other day talking about our big purchase this week. He was anticipating a new camera announcement, so when I gave the clue that my new baby had wheels, he was quite disappointed. Don’t worry Gary. I am hoping to upgrade my camera sometime soon too, and you will be the first one to know. 🙂
Anyway, we have been talking lately about going car shopping, in the hopes that I could get a newer car and give my old one (which is still quite nice) to my oldest son because he is going away to college in the Fall. Being a boy, he gets shafted when it comes to insurance plus he will be financing his college education through loans, so he definitely doesn’t need a car payment too. Although we were just going to start looking, we ended up purchasing a 2010 Dodge Charger. It’s not brand new, I know, but it certainly looks like it is, and it is gorgeous!! The mileage is very low, and this new baby of mine is fully loaded – V6 3.5L engine, all wheel drive, heated seats, built in GPS, satellite radio, leather interior, remote starter, etc. etc. So, you will have to put up with me bragging about my car for this one post because I have never had quite such a new car before. By the way, I’m looking for a name for my new baby. Does anyone have any suggestions? A car has to have a name, right?
