Well, it's new to ME

So, a month or so after the little old lady knocked my glasse sinto the back seat and my life into a bit of a state of disarray. I have a new car.

Not new, per se, but new to me.

A 1993 Subaru Legacy LS. Silver. A little under 150,000 miles. AWD. Sunroof (doesn't always work, but it's there).

Once I finally got the check from the other insurance company, I could do some serious looking. Not much sense in looking, if you can't buy.

I looked and looked and looked, and researched and thought and watched other cars on the road, and decided that a Subaru station wagon *slight shudder* would probably be a pretty logical choice. After all, I have not only my dog, but occasionally a guest dog to tote around, and there have been more than a few occasions where I wished I could get the bass drum into my car. So, it's not a sportscar, it's not a Mini (sigh) , but hey, at least it's not a minivan.

And the CBB was good enough to go with me all the way to Fort Collins (about 2 hours away, for those who might not know), test-drive, cogitate, think, cogitate some more, look at other cars, and finally help me drive the "new" car and the rental home. Boy, if I wasn't consciously aware of it recently, this reminded me what a lucky princess I am. We were all set to go camping that weekend, and instead, he schlepped around Ft. Fun with me, used-car shopping. That must be love.

So, yes, I still have the "TINYCAR" plates, already installed on the Suby. I'm already thinking toward how I might be able to fit in a car payment by the time the smart cars come out in a year-and-a-half. This still isn't a tiny car. But at least it's one that I chose.

And at least it's not a minivan.

Well, I wouldn't say we were "all set" to go camping. It was "planned". But getting a new car was more important, especially with that rental on your tab.

Speaking of which, what?, no pictures? I don't think that's gonna fly with most people around here.

P.S. You're welcome. :*

Yeah! No worries. A "suby" is a lot higher on the cool scale than a Ford. And it should be good to you. Glad you found some wheels (and a great CBB! Though I figured that he was great some time ago. :-))
