That new car smell
We will get our new car when we get back from Thailand. It actually came this week. I don't want it to just sit here for two weeks, so I said we would pick it up then. A big part of me wanted to back out of the deal. My old car seems to run ok, so why pay for a new car. I guess there is always going to be a tug between meeting the needs of the day and investing in the future. My old car is rusty, it has over 200,000 km on it and its 19 years old. It probably would not pass another State inspection, I know this. But it runs today...so I wanted to back out of the deal. But the new car is now here, and I can not back out. It is a wise deal, I saved 40% off the cost of a new car. I'm sure I will enjoy the car, but I was thinking I would enjoy that money too. So I get a new car the same day we return from Thailand.
