Jeep Wrangler!!!

so...Joe and I had decided that we were going to sell our Lincoln LS sometime soon...we wanted to lower our monthly car payments...
Why would you sell the LS?: it was a V8, took premium gas only, had no warranty left>>>so we knew that sooner or later it was going to start giving us problems and without a warranty, that could be $$$!

we've always wanted #1) a fun, cheaper car to drive around town in (the Wrangler), and #2)a nicer car to take on trips (our Cherokee)...and we LOVE jeep wranglers...so, I researched yesterday on the computer and found the jeep at Carmax! It was exactly what we wanted and was at the Carmax where Joe bought our other Jeep Grand Cherokee, out where we used to live in Jersey Village (Houston)...

so, after working out, we took the Lincoln out there (not really expecting to buy a car..but wanting to see what the trade in would be, etc)...needless to say, we ended up buying the wrangler! someone else was looking to buy it, but something was going on with their credit? or something? so, they told us WE could get it! and we did! for a GREAT deal!!!

our monthly payments are going to go down significantly, it's a manual transmission that takes unleaded fuel!, we have a 3 year warranty!, and it's going to be awesome to ride top down when it's beautiful outside!! we can't wait!! we went today and bought some ATV tires to put on there (the tires it had were pretty rink-dink)...so, we are thrilled! (if you can't tell)... these are baaaaaaad pics, but I promised I would post some...so, I'll put better ones on later!

That's sooo exciting!!! Isn't so much fun to buy a new car together?! I love it, and you look so cute in it!! Love the color, too. You'll have to take me for a ride in it next time you're in wacko.

Love it!! I drove one my frosh year in college until TMK and me and another were all sitting up front without seatbelts and we hydroplaned and fender-bended. OOPS! Dad promptly took it away. Smart man.

mdm! you're going to freak out my parents!! (i'm already getting it enough!) haha..jk.

YES, dad, we WILL be careful! ;) no, i'm not going to drive it around until i feel completely comfortable with the "stick", and yes, i'm going to avoid interstates at all times! ;)

MANDY! I totally remember that night. PLEASE be careful Suzanne! I was so concerned that the ice cream we bought at the store would melt before the accident was all wrapped up with the police. It was so fun to ride in though! Hey, I saw the "Diva" car freshener on your mirror. I have one of those in my car too.

Love a jeep wrangler! Adam use to have one in college before we were married and I wish he hadn't sold it because it is such a fun car to drive in the summer. You look great in it!
