A new Car!

 
I apolgize for not blogging more recently but we have been spending all our free time searching for a new car for son #2--his first BIG purchase on his own. The car we inherited from my mom after my dad died, has finally given it up at 200,000 miles (although for those of you that know the husband...he is not sure it is dead yet)and this was the car that he was driving. Everyone should have the experience of car shopping....especially with someone who is 6'7".....it makes car shopping a whole new ball game. The men in this family have to try on cars like most people try on shoes. Also, son #2 is not easily swayed to a car salesman point of view. In the time that it took him to think about his options (not many I might add....a '07 Hyundi Azera-too expensive, a 06 Nissam Maxima..same problem a 07 Chevy Impala and a 08 Ford Taurus)--I could have been talked into 4 other cars in a half a heart beat!!!
He finally decided on the 08 Ford as he got the best deal and it had the least amount of miles and better warranty.
This is it and he is very happy.....and I can now go back and spend my free time blogging!

I guess that exhausts the O'Laughlin 1-new-car-per-decade quota.

I like it. Glad he found something he likes.

Nice! I'm guessing that Charley is not going to get rid of the caravan yet? He is planning on working on it.....

For the car industry and for the dealers, I'm happy that some people still buy cars ... but personally I'm also very happy not to own one any more! (I guess it depends on where you live!)

Hooray! This is indeed a success. (I need to replace my 2000 truck but it only has 55,000 miles on it. Unfortuneately, there is nothing wrong with it but I feel like it will never be a cheaper time to get a new one. A conundrum!)

Awesome Mr. Eric NOW tell your dad to ditch the old cars from the driveway. I would kill you all if you lived in my neighborhood with all those junkers in the drive. (You live in an upscale neighborhood remember). Hey is the caravan big enough for Fatticus, 80 pounds of food a LARGE cat box and a bed?????? Good idea huh????
