The Camry has been totalled.
Sad day. : (
I loved that car so.
But alas....all is not lost. Because now I get to buy a new car.
Except I'm jumping ships.
See, I've always been a Ford girl. The pickup I have now is my fourth Ford.
My first pickup was a 1985 tan Ford Ranger. It was sweet. My parents won it with a $10 raffle ticket at a cow show in California when I was 2 or 3. Both my brother and I drove it through high school.
Then my parents got me an F-150 extended cab. It took me to college. And then it blew up on I-5 outside of Albany. But I couldn't hold that against it....it had a gazillion miles on it, and had been a great pickup.
So then I got an F-250. Clint and I took it on our first date to the beach. Good memories with that pickup.
And finally, after I graduated...I bought the big daddy. An F-350 diesel crew cab.
But it only gets 15-17 mpg, and when you drive over 2,000 miles a month, that adds up to one big gas bill!
So - if the car dealership can get it all worked out....
I'm jumping ships, and buying this...
It's a Chevy Equinox. And it's highway rated for 32 mpg!
And it has all wheel drive....which I think will come in handy this winter.
What do you think?
