To the Max!
Jason claimed that he would write a post about his new car. But since he hasn’t done it yet and probably never will judging from the frequency of his posts, here’s the skinny on it.
We needed a new car for two reasons. One, Jason’s once red ’96 Mitsubishi Mirage is now pink and air-condition-less.
Secondly, I won’t be able to drive a manual for three months due to my recent surgery.
Both cars we owned were manuals so we decided that it was probably time to buy Jason a new car.
After shopping around we finally bought a ’04 Nissan Maxima. Though this car is a little older than we planned on buying, it was too plush to pass up. It has a leather interior, seat warmers, steering wheel warmer, dual moonroofs, Bose stereo system, six-CD changer, and it handles beautifully. I have never been much of a car person but, as one of my friends pointed out, feeling the power of that car makes me giggle like a little girl. I admit, I like it, I like it a lot. All these luxuries may be old news to those of you that are avid car freaks but Jason and I have always been happy with any car as long as it was reliable and comfortable. As a result, we have never put much money into our cars and the sports sedan thing is new to us.
And yes, this will be JASON’S car. I won’t use my girliness to trump his turn at having a new car. (I hate when wives always take the nicest car and leave their husbands the rust covered piece o’ shiz that barely runs.) I won’t complain though that I get to drive our new purchase for the next few months while my tendon heals.
