Monday Morning Mayhem
First off, that silver piece of metal will be death of me. That's a pic of my car, well not my actual car...I bet it runs better than mine!! This morning this car and I were about to fight. It was like 9 degrees this morning so I knew I was in for a treat when I went to go start it up. To my suprise it started up fine. I let it warm up for about 10 minutes...I put that bitch in drive and it cut off. Now this is the behavior I am used to. I tried restarting it but it wouldn't budge. I sat there for about 10 minutes trying to get the car started but it wouldn't turn on. I was about to cry, not because of the car but because it was so damn cold. I had to go back in the house and find some gloves because it was going to be a long journey to the train station this morning. Long story short, I was 45 minutes late to work this morning.
I made a decision at work today. I went to a stationary shop and bought a "For Sale" sign. When I got home I put it on my car and now I'm waiting for some fish to bite. I put asking price $2200 but if someone offers $22 I will take it. I am sick and tired of this car. I already dropped $1300 on it last March (I did a kick, twist, and pop in the mechanic shop when he told me what it would cost). I refuse to put up any more money for it. All future funds will be going to this *see below*
This will be my new venture. It's a 2001 Nissan Maxima. I drove one not too long ago and fell in love with it. Roomy on the inside and strong enough for me to handle. This car kicks, where as my Taurus has no pull. I have a lead foot and I could step on my gas and I'M GOING NO WHERE. This car is the opposite. *I think I fell in love with a piece of metal*. So look out for me by this summer, that Maxima should be mine.
On a side note, if anyone here was thinking about buying a car...disregard any negative things I said about the Taurus. The car is wonderful and will last you for years to come.
