I never thought I would say this but we bought a new car! It's weird that "change" seems to be coming to almost everything. We always have heard that you don't buy a knew car because it costs you $1000 to drive a new car off the car dealer's lot but not anymore! We went in on Thursday to look at the Hyundai's to see what a deal we could get. We found the Hyundai's Elantra would give us 10 mph more than the van so we qualified for the $4500 deal from the government. I didn't like that the government had this plan to spend our tax money to buy old cars, but since it was there, I wanted to take advantage of it to get some of our taxes we've paid back to work for us!
Our van that is now in scrap metal heaven was a 1994 Chevy Astro. We had bought it a year old in the end of 1994 and had owned it for 15 years.
