Proud Mama :)

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a new baby! She's a 2000 Chrysler Concorde, and I love her more than any self-respecting human female should ever love a car. Compared to driving an SUV, this is like driving a sports car - it takes the corners like they're not even there! And while I realize this is not exactly a new car, it's the newest one I've ever driven, and I am enjoying all it's gizmos - at the press of a button it tells me things like what direction I'm heading and what the temperature is outside, or how many miles per gallon I'm averaging (24 MPG so far - an absolute dream compared to my dad's Trooper @ 14 MPG, and my old 4Runner @ 16 MPG). And while I haven't tested it yet - I am 99% certain that my mom's wheelchair will fit in the trunk!

I am considering a spoiler and/or racing stripes (can you tell I really wanted to buy a sports car? lol), and it will definitely need a stereo upgrade - but mostly this car just makes me sigh at it's utter perfection ... LOL :)

Hooray for the new car! (Is that your house with the sweet bunting in the background?)

CONGRATULATIONS! :-)

I myself have recently sold my car, seeing as how I work from home and hardly ever go out. I've started taking the "subway" (aka Redline), and I LOVE it. Hooray for public transportation!

Yen - no that's the neighbor across the street with the sweet bunting (it goes up around Memorial Day and stays until ... Labor Day, I think).

K-Dragon - I am green with envy that you have public transport as an option - lack of it is the MAJOR thing wrong with small-town America.

What colour will the "GoFaster" stripes be? Emerald Racing Green perhaps?

Tigger - well, I do (somewhat famously) adore green .. but I think I'm leaning towards white. I think it'll look best with the almost navy blue color of the car :)
