    Well I finally gave in to the realization that I needed a car with less miles, better gas milage, and just all around more economical than I had.

    So today I went out and traded my Nissan Frontier with 94,725 miles on it, that got 16mpg in and wound up with a brand new '04 Chevy Cavalier.

    Not much room to haul gear, but other than my basses which will fit fine, I generaly don't anyhow.

    It is much nicer to look at the odometer and see "44" than it was to see"94,725", and I am pretty sure it won't hurt too bad to get those 32 miles to the gallon either. :hyper:

    I will post pics tomorrow when it is daylight outside, but I had to gloat happily first. I am excited.

  3. Sweet color! I love green. :bassist: :D
     
  4. Congradulations on the new ride!

    If you think 90 something thousand miles is bad and that required a new car then i guess my van at 182K is way overdue :D


    I would have loved a used Nissan Pickup. ;)

    Alas, my BMW is also a hungry beast.

    I know that 90,000 miles isn't high by most people's standards, but there is alot of work that needs to/should be done at 100,000 and I did not want to sink any more money into a truck that I was VERY upside down on.

    The lower millage is just a welcome bonus to getting out of a bad deal. :)
