  •  I spend some time in the seat, being sure that (2+ / 0-)

    there will be lumbar support for a short girl and that I can see out of all the windows. I use the consumer reports magazine to narrow down the models/prices.

    I refuse to buy any thing red (more likely to be hit from behind) or dark (don't like washing cars any more).

    Since I know I will keep the car until it gets rusty, I want it to have music but nothing delicate to break, like moon roof or fancy wheels.

    My 1990 camry was only replaced for rust; but it still had the original exhaust. The 2002 Subaru only has 80,000 miles on it, if I can keep the rust from bothering me, it's good for quite a bit longer!

    Last week at the drug store, there was a weird man smiling on the sidewalk when I pulled into a parking spot.  I fiddled around in the car for a minute hoping he would leave, but when he didn't, I got out and went into the store.  

    He followed me, (creepy) and then, asked me if I would sell him my car!  He said that the forester was the best car ever built, that he already had two of them and kept asking me questions about my car, he nearly swooned when he heard the low milage / never been in an accident info.  

    Finally I had to tell him that he was third in line to get the car, but that I knew his brother and would get in touch if I changed my mind about selling.  I estimate that will be in 2017.  

    The forester has a great seat and is a base model that gets good milage.  I can haul just about anything in my baby, and, as my friend said when we were looking at the dealership,  "there's a velvet lined box in the dashboard for your jewelry!!"  What girl wouldn't buy a car that has a built in jewelry box!

    If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. &
