Our 1991 Honda Civic has served us well but it's in need of a number of repairs and isn't a spring chicken anymore. I've been praying for months that it would last as long as it needed to, while our savings account grew interest, and I felt prompted a few weeks ago that we needed to buy a new car NOW. I started praying that we could find a good car and we finally saw an ad for a 2005 Honda Accord that looked great and the price was well under Kelly Blue Book value. We checked it out and prayed and felt good about it, so we got it!
We were able to pay cash and it's the newest car I've ever owned. I think the youngest car I've had before was 8 years old. This car has 84,000 miles and only one previous owner. It's so fancy that I'm nervous to even have it in our driveway! Cruise control, A/C, a seat that adjusts so we can both comfortably drive it, what luxuries! It's black and sparkles blue in the sunlight.
What a Cheshire cat grin...he's been dying for a newer car.
We tried to tell my MIL (who is visiting) that we just got a new paint job on our old car, since she never sees our car, but she didn't fall for it. :P
