Ultimately, I decided to start fresh. Especially after I broke down halfway to my sister's high school graduation... I feel like this is pretty common knowledge, but just in case you don't know, shopping for used cars is NOT FUN. Apparently because the economy is so bad, people are turning to buying used cars more often, so the demand is higher. Because of that, there was not a lot of selection and the prices were high! Especially for the most reliable, like Honda and Toyota. I eventually decided to take my changes on buying from a private seller to get more for my money.

Meet Hans, my 2002 C70 Volvo. I know I know, Hans is a German name and Volvo is a Swedish car. I don't care! It just fits! Anyway, I'm super happy with it and definitely feel like I got a good deal for what I paid. There's just something I really like about Volvos and everyone always laughs at me when I tell them it's my dream car. I love my "new" car, but I can't wait to eventually get a NEW car. *sigh* someday.....
So now I have a car again, but I still need to figure out what to do with Yolanda. I hope I can get at least some money for that car even though it needs a transmission. Maybe I'll sell it on Craigslist?
Also, I bought my car from a young 20-something, skinny Turkish dude. He was a pretty "typical" guy, you know, masculine and stuff. Anyway, he left one of his CDs in the CD player (which to me means it's a free CD) and I can't stop laughing about which one it is. It's Christina Aguilara - Stripped. You know the one with "Durrty" on it?! HAHAHA awesome. Guess you never know what people are into.
