Second, about a month ago, I brought my car in to be smogged - because I couldn't renew my registration without a smog this year. It wouldn't pass and it would cost me about $1,300 just for the new cadalytic converter and more if you include the labor to replace it and the car isn't even worth that much. (Kelly Blue Book is $2,000). The part is so expensive because of the California state requirements.:( So I had to buy a new car. My old car was a Toyota Corolla. It had 226,000 miles and I had it for 8 years so it did do me good. So instead of paying for a repair that would take me months to pay off, I decided just to get a new car. I looked at the new Corollas, but for the same price and a few more "extras" I ended up getting a Nissan Sentra. Here's my new baby.
Now it's back to full insurance and car payments. Yuk - but I really do love the car. It has bluetooth built in for the cell phone and it has a jack for my ipod and the menu pops up on the car screen on the dash. And my favorite thing is I finally have cruise control. I commute over 40 miles one way to work, so a gas efficient and comfortable car is very important.
Now here's a gross/funny/weird story - you be the judge.
These are some miscellaneous things that I wanted documented on my blog. Thanks for looking.
