I think that sometime in the Spring my husband and I might start looking for a new car. We’ve got a 1996 Ford Contour that we bought used in 1999. I guess our car is getting kind of old huh? It still looks good and runs fairly well though. I am however tired of the doors sticking together in the winter due to moisture and the power window motors failing!
Before the car starts having major problems due to it’s age we might as well start figuring out what kind of car we want to replace it with right?
I’m kind of partial to Smart Cars and the Prius. Anything that’s economical to drive, conserves energy and is good for the environment. Chris likes both of those cars too. In fact, if we got a smart car it would fit perfectly in our tiny tiny driveway too! We’d never ever get an SUV. It’s just the two of us and we have no need for a big gas guzzler like that. I see way too many people driving big vehicles and they’re all by themselves in the car. What a waste.
If we could each have the car of our dreams I’d get a Porche and my husband would either get a Ferrari or a Corvette. He’s actually been admiring some of the new Corvettes lately. He even visited a page with Corvette history for the years of 1997 up to 2007. The site has all the information about the last decade of Corvettes that you’d ever want to know from the color of the paint used each year to the VIN numbers. I looked at the site to see how the Corvette has changed over the years. Don’t tell my husband but I kind of like Corvettes as well. I’m not sure they’re that practical for a home that doesn’t have a garage to keep the car in, in the winter though!
Maybe if we come into some money we’ll get the cars of our dreams, but for now I think we just need to replace our current car with something practical. I’ve no idea what kind of car we’ll end up buying but I’m certain we’ll have a new car by summer.
