Trading Up

Back in September we sold our faithful little '95 Toyota Corolla and bought a Honda (scooter, that is) and Easy E has been driving it to work ever since. It was to save him time in finding a car that he liked. He hasn't complained about bad gas mileage, being stuck in traffic, or getting hop-ons, but overtime he has grown pretty tired of it. I must say that it has been rather humorous seeing a 6'2" tall man in his dress clothes driving a scooter to work in affluent Scottsdale.



Yesterday we made a big step and bought a car. A 2006 Scion xB. We have always liked them, have test driven them before, and a guy made us a great offer. Actually, it was a pretty dumb offer, so we took it and are still in shock. People either love this car, or they hate it. After driving it...we love it. We are now one of "those" people who drive the "box." He claims that it's like an ice-cream truck that has mated with a Civic.



What do you think?

Will you be selling Push-up pops from the back? If so- I love it. If not, I'll think about it.

congratulations on the new car! that is pretty exciting. Matt has always loved these boxy cars, and I have to admit, I've come to like them as well! Have fun.

I agree with Tiffany on this one! If there is any form of a delicious treat coming out of this car then I am all for it!!!! If it delivers the delicious treat to where ever I am, then I am even more excited about your new purchase. HINT HINT!! :)

How exciting for you. That would be funny to see Eric on a scooter, but I have to admit, I am not a big fan of the car but it doesn't matter what I think, as long as you love it and got a great deal. Congrats!!

hayley, i sneak peaks over here at your blog too!

i love your etsy shop!

I dig 'em both actually.
I don't even know you, which might explain my willingness to suggest such a treacherous maneuver, but I say you drive the Scion most of the way to his work. When you get near his exit, pop open the hatchback and have him back out the scooter "Knightrider Style." He could take it from there.

Whatever you work out is fine, though. Put your own spin on it.
