What a relief! Having a reliable car is something that is easy to take for granted, until you don’t have transportation at all. Then you start seeing things in a new light all of a sudden.
So, here are the photos of my new ride.
I ♥ my ‘Burban! I might name it. It’s just so pretty with it’s white exterior and it’s tan interior.
Sorry, it’s dark outside right now and the dark vehicle lurking in the shadows is the massive, black, icky van.
Gotta love all that head room for growing kids. The cargo hold grocery compartment is nice and roomy as well.
Nice clean 3rd row seats peanut gallery.
The versatile 2nd row came fully equiped with 4 drink holders, a travel tissue pack compartment, and a hairy legged, teenaged cowboy. Wait, I think I know that cowboy.
Nice, tight headliner. Not too shabby for a 13 year old ‘Burban.
Lots of lovely knobs and buttons that really make stuff happen when you deploy them. Very swanky!
Look! There’s that cowboy again. He looks more familiar behind his head-gear, huh?
The front, bucket seats have covers on them to protect/hide some upholstery damage. You can’t know how little I care ’bout that.
One of the way cool things about us getting this Suburban today is that hubs called me up at about 9;15 or 9;20 or so to say, “Why don’t you look on craigslist.com? That’s where Jeff found his car.”
I looked up craiglist.com and found the cars & trucks bit and entered our max price and the word Suburban and the first one listed at the top was the one we ended up buying. I had a good feeling about it from the start. Their ad said things that were important to me. It was a good match from the start, so I called the number using my cell phone which is important because I just now checked what time I made the call. 9:34. The ad for my car listed at 9:30.
Craigslist.com works for me.
Here’s your shortcut back to Works for me Wednesday.
