Puzzle Pieces
Well, I'm a few thousand dollars lighter, but at least I now have a car (which means I can now get a job!) Julie and I drove up to Burbank to a small family run used lot and picked up a 1999 Hyundai Accent. I want to get a license plate frame that says, "My other car is a Hyundai Accent..." The new Hyundai is silver and 2 door, and luckily the styling is considerably different than Hwang (Julie's Accent.) I got the car out-the-door for a HAIR more than I wanted, but the milage was low, so I figured I would go for it. It doesn't have AC, but hopefully I will be able to live without that "luxury," or I will just live in sweaty traffic hell until my next car. They had a '93 Nissan Sentra for the same price WITH AC, but it had nearly three times the miles, so I figured I would play it safe. They also had a '93 Nissan 240SX for three grand that was really tempting, but I figured I had been down that road once... (and it had 130K miles which is about the breaking point of a lot of stuff on that car IIRC.) I will post pictures of the new addition later today (or maybe tomorrow morning...) and I'm also looking for name suggestions. So far we have "Stone Pony" and "Shadowfax" in the running...
