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.

Who's hotter with the car? Me or Jas?

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.

    The blog is still showing up wrong on my computer- very odd. But I found a way to navigate to the post. Congrats again on the new car! I’m really excited for you guys and I think your new car is awesome. The world of luxury is a very exciting one (remember, you don’t HAVE to shop at DI anymore!). And of course I’m glad your surgery went well and I wish you the swiftest recovery.
