A month ago, Geoff's car, a 1998 Saturn, died a quiet death. Needed a whole new engine to the tune of $3000. Well, since the car isn't even worth $1000, we bid it a fond farewell. It brought Isabelle and Lorelei home from the hospital, it took us many many places. Rest in peace.
We have been going on one car. RAPTOR programs, getting Lorelei to school, trying not to need to be two places at once. No matter how we slice it, we need to be a two-car family.
May I now introduce the newest member of the Williams' household.....
A 2006 Subaru Forester. (I asked Lorelei to be my car Model, and she did the cutest "Ta-Da" pose.)
I have wanted a Subaru for years. Good gas mileage, reliable, just enough car for me. It has all that I want and nothing I don't.
I have never owned a car this new. Geoff has had one brand-new car before, but this is really really new for me.
And I love the color...it's called Garnet. (which happens to be my birthstone, by the way)
I didn't get a good side view photo, so here's one I swiped off the Net:
You are all going to love this.
Drive Magazine is a publication from Subaru. And this was the cover that greeted us as we sat down with the salesman:
If that's not a sign, I don't know what is.
More pictures tomorrow...I ran out of daylight, then had to go to RAPTOR to package mice and rats.
