Hi everybody..Today was a great day in the Haynes Household.. Not only is Mrs. H still in South America (YAY!!!), but There was some car jockeying going on..
My son Reese has been driving my 1990 3/4 ton Ext Cab longbox Chevy P/U
It's been killin me in gas...10-12 MPG, and he only drives to school and to band.
I drive a "Beater with a Heater" a 1995 Buick Century, that I bought 2 1/2 years ago from off of our lot for 900 Bucks...Great mileage, and the air blows COLD!!!
Of course our main family car is a 2007 Chevy Impala that I lease, and my wife drives!!
But the truck was costing a small fortune to drive, so today I bought a 2000 Chevy Malibu that I happened to take in on trade for 1000.00 It was a very clean car, and the girl that owned it drove 60 miles a day round trip for her job, so I knew most of the miles were put on during the commute. it had 122,270 miles on it, thats why it was so cheap.
The company let me buy it for 1490.00 plus tax...YAY!!!..That included a full inpection(which it passed with flying colors) an oil change, tire rotation, and a full tank of gas..
Sooooo, I decommissioned the Truck, Reese got my Buick, I got the new 'used' car....
We are still bachelors...Life is good!!!!
