My New Ride.......

that I have to wait 8-12 weeks for. Waaaaaaa!! We decide to get rid of the gas guzzling Trail Blazer ( I sure am going to miss it) I loved that thing but with gas almost 3.00 a gallon and the way I rip and roar and burn up the skreet I thought it be best that I have a more efficient car so I decided I wanted a 2006 or it might be an 07 Honda Civic Hybrid. Yep that's right going big to small. We will now own the most effecient car on the road and the worst car on the road. The Hybrid that I am going to name Rhonda will get 50 MPG and the Jeep...please don't get me started on that damn Jeep, gets 9-12 miles to the gallon. I now have the pleasures of Jeepin it for the next 8-12 weeks..(I special ordered it) (god please let it only be 8). Now...I must say I am so excited to get a car that I have never test drove...yep that's right..how crazy is that? I know but look at all the cool things I am getting in it...Now folks don't be jealous....hehehehhe

My sterring wheel...see in the trailblazer i was spoiled with the air and radio buttons on the steering wheel so all my cars from here on out will have that. I also had leather in the trailblazer but unfortunatly that is not an option on this..but that's ok I can have then leathered up at a later date if I want..doubt it though...now onto the dash...

Yep that's right..don't be haten...my very own built in GPS.
You see...O'Neil always picks on me because I read a map upside down. He is amazed that I don't get us lost but you know I always get us where we are going. He says it's the damndess thing he has every seen. I think he is the crazy one. I know what's going on around here. NEVER doubt my directions people even though I read a map upside down doesn't mean we will get lost. Anywho so with this I asked him if I can set it to be upside down...he laughed at me...I didn't think it was a ridiculous question but hey what do I know??

Aggghhh and the smell of a new ride is always the shit...Man I cannot wait...650 miles to a tank of gas sure is sounding better and better seeings how today I went to work 10 miles one way to luch and back home and burned a quarter tank of gas...that is ridiculous....He needs to get rid of that damn Jeep

J-E-E-P stands for Just Empty Every Pocket....It's a money pit but now at least I have a jammin system since I have to ride in it for what feels like eternity.

Well have a great week!!

I am sooooooo with you on the damn jeep, we have a moocher in our family too!! He promptly took the hardtop off it on Monday and yesterday was a high of 42 degrees...great idea!!!
Can't wait to hear the reviews of the "H" after you've had it a while, really need a hybrid with the gas prices around here!

Interestingly, on Saturday I had my 2006 Civic Hybrid (named Rhonda!) delivered. You can see her at bluefootsue.blogspot.com
If you live in California you wouldn't have to wait 8 weeks for delivery if you do what I did to get my hybrid.
I contacted an auto broker in Fresno named Al Jennings.
Al is a straight-up guy. He has contacts with auto dealers for any make or model all over the state. It told him what I wanted, located the car and delivered it to my door! It was amazingly easy. I only waited 2 weeks for him to locate the Opal Silver Blue metallic color.
I LOVE my Rhonda!
