I tell her to go back the car out and I'll be out in a minute. I go grab my phone and wallet and when I come out - what do I see her sitting in? A dang Volvo C70 convertible with brand new buyers tags on it and it's fully loaded. Color me purple!
I knew she was getting an itch for a car as she had been drooling over the Mazda MX-5 Miata - but I guess she wanted a "little" more car - and she said it will be easier for her to get in and out of as her MS progresses. THEN she tried to play the "but it gets good mileage" routine. My reply was her Fusion was getting 28-29mpg on the open road as it was and only had 32,000 some odd miles on it.
Have to admit, it's a nice car (and now I inherit the 2011 Ford Fusion and get to just park the '96 F250 diesel and use it for chores - if I don't ride the Goldwing instead).
