It just happened to be on this 12th that I bought a new car.
2006 Subaru Forester. I drove off the lot with 30 miles on it. I won't comment on how much I paid for it cuz I might get a lot of unwanted comments, and maybe I did leave money on the table had I been a punk about it, but I thought the offer fair.
I will say that since this is the BY FAR the largest puchase I've ever made, I definitely had to step outside for fresh air before I signed. I told the sales guy that I needed to step outside, and he got all paranoid about what I was doing, and I was like "no, for real, I just need fresh air. give me a minute."
But they were very nice since it took two of them to drive 30 mins with me up to my apartment, through traffic, to deliver me and my borrowed car. I was greatly appreciative.
Anyways, I'll tell you a tidbit about the car itself, its dark blue, all wheel drive (its what makes a subaru, a subaru) its kind of like a mini-SUV, and gets great gas milage. Perfect all-mountain machine. Plus the fact that Subaru's don't lose much value in Colorado. Seriously. Ok so here are the pics and some others from the day.
P.S. I'm still looking for a good name..and I like to name my car guy names, cuz I like to think of us more of buds than...lovers.
