Well, I finally did it. I retired the JayTeaMobile this last week, and upgraded to a better class of vehicle than my 11-year-old Cavalier. She’d served me well for a while, but she was getting a lot of problems (including a water pump that was on the verge of spontaneously disintegrating). From what I could figure out, repairs would’ve been a significant portion of its actual trade-in value, so I bit the bullet and traded her in.
I really, really like my new ride. Plenty of power, yet comfortable, too. Lots of cool electronic toys, including automatic climate control, power everything, and an Alpine 6-CD changer in the rear.
Not to mention that I, as a swinging, single guy, need a car that’s a real babe magnet. Something that’ll drive all the chicks crazy. And I think I have just the wheels.
I’m at the age (37) where I can pretty much write off the hot co-eds. With that in mind, I chose my car to appeal to the lonely soccer moms. (I watch “Desperate Housewives.” I know they’re out there.)
I’m gonna be paying this one off for a while, but I think it’ll be worth it.
The next step is to come up with a name for her. “The Shaggin’ Wagon” is my leading candidate, but “Moby Dick, the Great White Whale” has been suggested. Anyone else have any suggestions?
