Finally. After a long time saving and a long time looking I bought a car.
Its a 2003 Toyota Avalon with decent miles on the odometer.
Not exactly the sporty black baby with moon roof and rumbling varoom I had in mind but still with style.
I opted for sensible, like-new appearance, smooth ride, roomy interior, quiet and good over-all reviews
(but slightly humdrum)
The toothy smiley face is growing on me
The convenience of having a second car and not dropping John off at work to be mobile is very nice.
Still dreaming about my next car though. The really fun one to drive 🙂
Just a little something from Judy says
It sure is in great shape and I like the color. I really like the sunglasses and mustache.
I think it's a really nice looking car.. I love the interior!
I'm so happy for you, Lorraine! It's a beautiful classic! You simply can't go wrong with Toyota or Honda. I've always had both and they are trouble free!
Congratulations…lucky you! You are going to look fab in the car. I have a drivers license but I am s@#! scared to get behind the wheel 🙂
Congratulations! Have happy and safe rides in your new car!

What a pretty and immaculate car! Congrats, Lorraine.
I like the color!
Nice car! great to have the freedom to travel whenever you want/need to 🙂
Kara @ Petals to Picots says
Yeah! Congrats on the new car 🙂
congrats on the new wheels. Nothing like a car to give you sense of freedom
It looks great. I am so thankful for my lil old Malibu that my hubby thinks is "homely". It gets me around and I can count on it.
Nice leather interior you have!

Congrats on the new ride! I love my Toyota, too. Good cars. Funny, but at the time I purchased this one, I had my heart set on a shiny-black- with-cream interior Mercury Milan. I am sure I was led to make the right choice for me. xo
What a blessing!
If you could see what I drive, you'd think that your new car was really "fun"! (Long, boring story.) I am grateful, though, that we are a two vehicle family.
Enjoy your new wheels!
I like that sensible, like new appearance approach 🙂
You will love your Toyota. Would you believe that we are still driving a Toyota Sequoia with 319,000 miles on it? It still runs like a top and is in excellent shape on the exterior, too. My dil had a Toyota for many years too and sold it, still in excellent shape, when it was 12 years old. Enjoy your new wheels- xo Diana
Congratulations on the new car…"oh the places you'll go"!
I read your blog post and immediately thought of Dr. Suess! 🙂

Congrats on the car! I have owned two Avalons over the years and I have just loved them….a wonderful car! ENJOY
Looks like a nice car. Second cars are great.

Looks like a great car, I wish you the best of luck with it-enjoy:@)
Congrats! I think it has sports appeal:-)
It looks great!!! Looks to be in great condition! I dream of that sporty car with the wonderful varoom too! Until then I will continue to drive my truck. 1993 Ford F250! Yes, I am serious! Well it is loud, I could pretend that it is that sporty little car in my dreams!!! Congrats on the new wheels!!
