an era has passed

1999 Chevrolet Malibu The old green POJ has been retired. Wednesday it decided to let Bryan down and break his trust. Bryan’s trusted that when he pushed on the brakes old green would stop. Well, old green didn’t stop and in turn, Bryan tapped the bumper of the vehicle in front of him at the base gate. Thankfully, he was only going about 3 mph and not 55mph with Jacey with him.

Old green has been showing his age for a while, but we kept trying to give him the benefit of the doubt that he could still be a good 2nd car. No more chances from us, not when you put our lives on the line. It was a slight bittersweet moment though, because old green was the first major purchase of our marriage.

So, we applied for a loan and started shopping. Thursday, we test drove 2 and looked on every major dealer lot here in FWB and the all the Crestview lots online. Friday, we test drove 3 more and the last one was a success!

It is a loaded 2008 Suzuki SX4 Crossover, I told Bryan, he was going to be lucky if I didn’t snag it and give him the Trailblazer…LOL! All the contracts are drawn up and as soon as the loan check gets here, we get to pick it up. I can’t wait, this few days of being a 1 car family has been difficult to say the least.

In all honesty though, we have decided that with gas prices the way they are, it is going to become our new run around vehicle…much more efficient than my truck. Also, whoever is driving further that day, will take it.

Since both vehicles are grey, I’d like to get matching personalized plate…any ideas? All I keep coming up with are cheesy like B&L 1/B&L 2 or the like.
