Tribute to the old girl...

{taken in our driveway}

we bought a new car. we broke down and took advantage of the government's "cash for clunkers" program and got a great deal! we have been driving a 1995 Cadillac DeVille that we called "the pimp mobile". it had dark windows, flamed license plates, a stereo system you could feel before it came around the corner..... plus all the other amenities caddy's have. it was cRaZy at my age driving something so pimp but WTF it was fun! sadly, the old girl was on her way out. Diane has kept her running over the years as she can work on cars, but when the air conditioning compressor went a few months ago and the front ball and joint went, it was a sign that she needed to be put to rest.


we loved her too much to let her suffer. bless.....

her final wish was to go out with respect so we traded her in on the cash for clunkers deal, and she brought us $4500.00 dollars off our new car....

which is a 2010 KIA Soul. i know it's NO WHERE near the quality or prestige of the caddy but we fell in love with it none the less. and i am positive the old girl is smiling upon us from the great ole caddy junkyard in the sky that all good cars go to in the end.

she served us well and will not be forgotten.

R.I.P. old girl.

we SO enjoyed driving you!

The first time I saw the Kia variety of cars I turned my nose up, but since I've known several people VERY HAPPY with them...and yours looks hot. ~Mary

Congratulations on the new baby. I think you will be very happy with her...sadly, no one will think you are a pimp though..

That's wonderful - congrats on the upgrade!

What's the Soul like? I've seen a few around and they look strange, but that's how funky was born!

Oh my hell! That's EXACTLY the car I've been looking at getting! The adorable commercial with the hamsters sold me. tee hee! (or, wait, are they mice? I don't remember!) Seriously, I've been thinking of getting a Soul. I'd love to get some feedback from you a couple weeks from now. Ya know, if you don't mind. ;-)

Congrats on the new ride! We may have to take advantage of that deal too, we have a clunker!

Everytime we've gotten rid of a car, it was because of the air conditioner.

Love the new car!
