To add to the list of things I've accomplished thus far in my life, I have now successfully purchased my very own car! My poor VW was, technically, my first car, but my dad helped me buy it and co-signed on the loan. This one I, ultimately, did on my own, and I got a GREAT deal. There were lots of phone calls to my parents and Jane was with me as a sounding board the entire time, but it was my decision, and I'm so excited!!
Sunday night, I was considering the merits of buying v. fixing, and mentioned, to my roommates and parents, that I was interested in a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. Monday morning, I started getting phone calls and emails from local Honda and Toyota dealerships. I thought my house/phone was bugged until I realized that my dad had requested internet quotes on my behalf. Thanks Dad!
After two days of test driving, six days of freaking out, a lot of prayer, and remembering how to drive stick, I finally signed on my car last night! I now drive a 2008 Honda Civic LX, manual transmission.
Isn't it a sexy car?
And just in time for a road trip and a weekend on the beach! Outer Banks, here I come!
This weekend also marks the end of this nifty little giveaway at Project Domestication! Check it out!
