We took one trip as a whole family in the Accord. One really cramped trip home from the hospital.
Technically the Accord fits our whole family, but practically it wasn't such a winning combination. So it was time to say "Goodbye" to Britney.
Last week we sold her to a young man who needed a "beater" to drive to work.
Really? When did Britney attain beater status? Sure, we've driven her for 14 years, but I always felt I was riding in style.
Oh well, she needed to be replaced with something with more room, so we got our all-American (though technically Japanese) minivan.
It has plenty of room for 2 adults and 3+ little boys. There's storage compartments and cupholders and even a CD player that won't hold CDs for randsom for undetermined amounts of time.
Oh and as for the color? Well, my sister-in-law tells me the factory name is something like "mocha metallic," but that's not very helpful to our debate--so let's just consult the cop that pulled me over during my first week driving it.
Well there you have it. I guess our new car is tan, although I still hold out that our old. . . well never mind.
And for the record Just because your new vehicle has an "all the time" illuminated dashboard does not mean that your car has "all the time" turned on headlights. Yes, I can see how that might confuse you because your dash was only illuminated in your last car when your headlights were turned on.
And for the second record. . . I'm sure I would have noticed my headlights weren't turned on once it got just a little bit darker.
