A New Car


We got a new car! Well not really new but new to us.

Jeramy and I have been talking about getting a third vehicle for a while because we do not like racking up a bunch of mileage on his truck, which we would like to last a while. However, since Jeramy has been laid off, taking on a car payment is not an option right now. But then an opportunity landed itself in our lap. My dad and stepmom owned this car, but it threw a timing belt when they were driving to Lake Chelan. They decided to buy a new car, so they were willing to let us take this one off of their hands. Jeramy replaced some parts including the head, and now the Cruiser is running great. It is a good car for me to drive to the Park and Ride every day, and it is an automatic so I can stop destroying the clutch in our Ford Contour.

Can I just say it is really nice to have a handy hubby! And thanks Dad and Cindy for helping us out!

Well, it's no MINIVAN...

... but I guess it's okay. ;)

Congrats on the new wheels!

Fantastic! I bet it gets great gas mileage, too.

Hopefully that thing doesn't break down on you as much as it did for Cindy, although I'd imagine Jeramy's fix will keep it running for another 10,000 to 20,000 miles without many problems.

Cool car! Cruisers are fun. I drove one on a long road trip once, through the mountains, and it was fun. And pleasantly roomy without being a minivan. :) (Sorry, Sunny!)
