Replacement Car

Well we were finally able to unload the old Maxima.  It was a good car but when ya need that much money put into you to stay road worthy then it's time to cut your losses and move on.

While looking through Craigslist I stumbled across a car that was recently taken away from an 83 year old woman.  A 2004 Buick Regal with only 34,000 miles on it.   We pounced at it as they were selling it way below book value.   It's in fantastic shape and came with every option on the book!   The original window sticker was with it and showed the price in 2004 at $28,000 !!!  For a Buick!  Ugh.   After 2 hours at the MVA the car is on the road and Tyler is back at the helm!!

It's funny because back in early July I was able to find Heather's son Nick a used car.  A 1992 Buick Regal  from Buffalo, NY.   It was taken from an old woman who recently went into a home.  It had, get this, 30,000 miles on it!!!! 18 years and 30,000 miles!!!!   It is immaculate condition and it too had the window sticker....   So now we're a 2-buick family!
