omfg... I just brought a new car.

Well, not new new. She (I've named her Luna) is a 1999 black Toyota Echo, 5 door hatchback, automatic, power steering, air-conditioning, cd-player etcetc. After I sold my last car, also a Toyota Echo (named Ernie), I kept saying that my next "newish" car would be another Echo, because they are so lovely to drive and very reliable. Noel and I went out today looking at vehicles -- I wasn't actually intending on buying anything or signing any contracts, I just wanted to see what was out there, the price ranges etc -- and we looked at a few other models, but when I saw Luna, I definitely felt a pull. An hour later, we had a trade-in on my current car (the Ford laser Noel brought me last year, named Rain), a signed contract, and a promise to call back early next week when I get my finance through the bank all sorted out (my loan applicaton is in and being processed, I just need the official word).

Hopefully I can pick her up this week. I'm so excited!!

I love love love my Echo. 2005 Echo Sedan in Aqua Ice. She's called Yoko and I spend way too much of my life in that car. :D

Yay! Digital speedometers! xxoo
