My NEW car!

After lots of discussion Darin decided that instead of getting him a new truck he would drive the Durango and we would get me a new more dependable car, then when he gets home from this next deployment we would pay off my new car and get him one that way we would only have one car payment. We decided to look online at CarMax and find a small SUV or van that got a lot better gas millage then the Durango and would keep our monthly payments where they were with Darin's truck. The flash light company had written us a check to cover the down payment to get the payments the same and to cover our personal items lost in the fire as our settlement. So after looking online I found a nice tan trailblazer LS that had under 70,000 miles was a 2006 and was in our price range so we drove over to Garland and took a look. Neither of us were impressed when we saw it, you could tell it used to be a smokers car as the carpet was discolored and you could see a few burns. So we walked around and I saw this one, I fell in love with it instantly, we had seen it online but it looked like it was a super bright purple so it had turned us off however in real life it was really a deep dark purple almost black and we both loved it. It was $1,500 more then the first one we looked at BUT was a 2008 so 2 years newer and only had 34,000 miles! It was super super clean and had plenty of room. So we got it. This is the newest car I have ever owned. My first car was an 1980 something Jeep Cherokee, then I had a 1970 something big blue pickup truck, then Darin bought me the 99 Durango back in 2003.
