As previously mentioned, I am now in possession of a new car. Not just a new car, but a brand new car. This is a first for me. I've never owned a new car before, so I was a little giddy last night when I drove it home. Granted, it's a little bit (OK, a lot) dad-like. That's OK by me. I got an incredible deal on it and I have enough luck with the ladies without the flashy car. 🙂
It's a 2003 Taurus SE – one of the last ones on the lot. I got about $8,000 off the sticker just to drive it off the lot for them. Depreciation? Not a problem for me. Anyway, it's got some really nice features that I didn't expect on a Taurus, including a pretty good stereo system with 6 CD-changer, great trim, and pretty good power. The best part may be –since I'm used to renting a Taurus on travel– it will feel like I'm on permanent vacation. YAHOOTIE!
She will affectionately be known as the "Brown Bull" or "Torro Marrón", at least until a better name can be established. So, if you see a really hot guy in a sedan blow by you – it's not me. But, if Mr. Plain rolls up next to you with a big smile, shoot me a wave, will ya?!
