I finally got a new car. I’ve been thinking about it for more than a year, and the one thing that got me to go look at cars was the fact that David and I will be taking a road trip to Cincinnati to visit Andy. Flying was expensive, the Amtrak was expensive, we didn’t want to risk driving my Grand Am and David’s truck was not a choice, so I bought a car! I think that maybe the car is a little bit more expensive than either the flight or train, but…it sooo pretty.
I got a 2012 Ford Focus. It has a moon-roof, sport package, 17” fancy wheels, sync (which is so very cool) and a bunch of other things, but the most important thing is the color, RED. I’ve always wanted a red car, and now I have one.
My Grand Am was a 6 cyl and this is a 4 cyl which is not supposed to make much of a difference, but it really does. I think I will miss the power for awhile. I’m sure I’ll get used to the slower pick-up, but I do notice it now. Take a look at my new baby ____, hmm, I need to think of a name.
