My once faithful old companion of a car is getting... unreliable. So I'm looking at new rides. Something bare-bones, cheap, but capable of hauling LOTS - everything from armchairs to deer heads to bags of leaves. I'm leaning toward the Honda Element... mostly because its shoe box on wheels styling, fold-away seats, and rubber floor mats seem perfect for my needs. (Easier to sweep leaves off rubber than carpet!)
I hate car shopping. It's especially un-fun right now because the salesmen are especially hungry. There's a definite feeling of Baby-needs-new-shoes urgency to some of them that makes me uncomfortable.
Tomorrow's the big Tire Kicking Day.
