Here is a pic of our car. Well, not our car, but ours looks like this, except there’s a bit more road rash on the hood. Next thing to do is get the chips filled in. I can’t tell if this one has a sun roof, but the one we drive does. Of course, with hubby’s pre-cancerous spots, we don’t open the sun roof in the day, so I guess it’s a moon roof!
Why am I finally showing you this picture? Well, as I was zooming up the mountain today, I was trying to beat the turn signal light and went through the very “yellow” arrow on two wheels. Hubby says to me, “You better not let Erik (our son-in-law) catch you driving his car like this!” To which I replied, “But it likes going up and down the mountain … it’s like a race track!!”
Yesterday, after work, I jumped into the car, started it up and no startie … it just went click click click click … but faster. I was so glad when the guys I work with said it was the battery. So one of my guy friends, popped the clutch to start the car and I zoomed off the mountain direct to the mechanics. This mechanic is a gem! He checked it out and switched the batteries. He’s going to let me know if the company will take the battery as a warranty replacement or not, but either way, I was able to get the battery changed and to my meeting with plenty of time and no worries about starting.
This car loves the new battery power! It vrooms right up as it starts instead of chugs to a start. It’s like having a new car all over again.
So, this is our new baby! We’ve had it a couple of months now and I still love zooming around in it. Hubby has a hard time getting in and out … there’s one good thing about me being short!! Although we can’t figure out how our son-in-law got in and out of this car as he’s 6’4 or 5 or 6″ … just amazing!!
Well, I’ve taken my meds and I’m gonna eat my dessert, then it’s bed time. Y’all have a great week!!
