holy crap, we bought a new van!

| 1 Comment | 1 TrackBack

One minute we're talking about how we really ought to think about replacing rather than repairing our aging, ailing 1991 Mazda MPV.

The next we're signing on a 2-year lease (at a surprisingly low cost) for a 2004 Honda Odyssey EX complete with built-in DVD system.


No buyer's remorse, but some buyer's incredulity!

It's a gorgeous van, though. Silver with gray interior, lots of nifty bells-and-whistles. And significantly safer than the ancient van we've been using, which makes me feel oh-so-much better about our upcoming trip to Alabama.

Will post photos after I pick it up tonight...

In which John reminisces about getting the Odessey (after getting the spelling of "reminiscence" with his cool Dictionary.com search plug-in for Firefox!). Read More

Congratulations on the new van! Nicky and I just picked up a new car two weeks ago as well. We had been sharing the VW since November and it's finally nice to have two cars again. We didn't opt for a van though, we got a Subaru Impreza WRX STi. It's quite a fun car so far...0-60mph in little over 4 seconds. I'll have to give you a ride in it some time this summer/fall :-)
