Ok, so my car died… boo hoo, sometimes life sucks, then you get over it. I went home for thanksgiving, had a blast hanging out with the fam, ate too much turkey (who didn’t?), and then today (friday) went car shopping with my dad. We went perusing around the dealers in St. Cloud, and saw a few cars we liked. There was a 5 speed prism, a couple of saturns, a cavalier. But the majority were out of our price range. I wanted to keep the payments below $200/mo so that meant $5000 or less for my car. Well, we got to Tenvoorde Ford, where I got the Sunbird a year and a half ago (may it R.I.P.), and we found this little 97 Mercury Tracer.
Its a 4 door, Automatic 4-cylinder that has cruise, AC and keyless entry. Its more compact than my Sunbird was, but I drove a metro in high school, and so I’m used to that. The seats arent the most comfortable, and its this ugly puce green. But it was the perfect price. $3790, and it has Cruise Control! (which I badly need if I don’t want to get a 6th speeding ticket)
So, I got a new pair of wheels. My next week will be spent trying to figure out how to mount my Pioneer CD deck in it so I can listen to CD’s. If you ask nicely, I might give you a ride
