Hubby is concerned about some stuff, so I gave the car back to my lender instead of buying it. It looks like I will have to learn stick shift, which has NOT gone well in the past. A plus, though, is that if I do learn it, I will be able to drive one of the coolest, sweetest rides in the city - a near-fully restored VW Super Beetle which has been sitting in my backyard for the past four or so years.
Yes, I am that close to white trash. A dead car in the backyard. (Three, actually. Hubby is a Car Guy.) All we need is a dead washing machine in the front porch and we are ON, good buddy.
