My favorite car used to be a ’93 Teal Green Honda Accord, now it’s a …

… late model Dodge truck.

My favorite new wish list item

My favorite new ‘wish list’ item

As you may or may not know, in 2004 I purchased an example of said Honda off eBay, and without trying it out first. It was not good.

Aside from the fact that I rode the overnight bus to Greenville, SC to fetch it, the car turned out to have more problems than I was willing to deal with, and so after replacing the radiator and finding out that was not the source of the overheating… it got parked in the garage.  After the divorce, some time in 2007, it was rolled out, wouldn’t start and so I sold it ‘as is’ to someone with more enthusiasm for the vehicle.

As of the fall of 2009 the fleet (all ‘paid for’ vehicles I’m proud to say) stands at one 1983 Pontiac 6000, one 1997 retired police intercepter (bought untested from – will I ever learn?!?), one 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis, and one 1990 Toyota Supra (destined for Lucas – contingent on his high school performance – thus the name ‘red Jap carrot’).
I’m working on saving up for the next vehicle – and then I got laid off!  God will provide.

(note from 2013:  As I saved up and had most of the money and as I say “it got real” I began asking myself what I would do with a truck bed as opposed to covered hauling space.
