Well, pics will have to wait til tomorrow sometime, but we closed a deal today on the replacement for my son's former Toyota Corolla. We landed a 99 Ford Escort sedan with under 100K miles and within the budget of the check we got for the Toyota. Basic transportation, VA car, in great condition (vs what we were finding here in NY which was better than I feared but the mileage on avg was about 20 to 40K more up here).
Wife and I are taking our youngest, leaving at oh dark hundred for the 480 mile trip down, and will reverse course on Thursday. I think I'm going to have to arm wrestle her for the keys to the Escort on the way back (though I will want to try it out just for my own peace of mind before she gets behind the wheel).
Been a fun month with 3.5 active drivers (James hasn't driven much since the accident) and just one car. now we're back to 'normal' and 4 for 2 cars.
