A New Friend

A few months ago when I posted about the auction I attended and stuffed my car, some of you said I needed a bigger car other than my convertible.

I had no desire for a new car.....I loved my baby

she still looked good for being 9 years old and 110,000 miles, I still got frequent complements AND she was paid for!

Isn't she pretty


WELL...................

Don't you hate the words "electrical problem, minimum cost $1700!!

With some tears, yes the dealership probably thought I was a crazy lady. I have a new friend, a larger 4 door friend. I feel like an old lady driving it.

My Mother in law can get in and out easy, now I can take people with me and the best part.....
it has a "Soprano trunk" my husband calls it, big enough for bodies!! So I have plenty of trunk space for the next auction....just a very empty pocketbook!


So my new friend and I are off to 1515. I am sure we will become close friends, but I do miss my old friend, wonder where she is............

Have a great day!

I know how you feel-I would keep a car till the wheels fell off! I hate getting used to something new.

Welp, when they have to go, they have to go and I cry, too.
But...I love your new baby. So cool and I love the color.
That's not a little old lady car- that's a cruisin' the strip car.
A perfect rummaging car, sale car and haul your buddies out to lunch car.
Have a great day and don't forget your sun glasses.

I don't think it's an old lady car. She's beautiful! Congrats!!!

I miss my old 'friend' too! But, I did let go and sad to say, I have adjusted to my new wheels. Time will help...

I would miss that snazzy convertible BMW too! But your new wheels will hold so many treasures, you will love it I'm sure! I keep telling hubby that I need to get a big ol' suv so that I have more room to haul thrifting loot!!
