Tony Spark5:30 PM
Finally, you guys, the post I have been meaning to get to for the past three weeks: My new car! After only three weeks of ownership, it already needed a good vacuum and a wash. Of course, ten minutes after washing the car, Louie stuck his nose all over the windows. Dog-snot ftw!
Anywho, this is my new baby! Say "hello" to Tony Spark, my 2013 Chevy Spark. When Beans finally died a month ago, Kyle and I figured out a budget for a newer car. Through some friends, I met my newer friend Chelsea, who just happens to work for an auto-dealership. I started looking online at their website at cars, and kept messaging her about different ones. The best part was that Chelsea is not a sales-(wo)man, so I just told her our budget and we walked around looking at the cars on the lot. I was almost set on a Sonic, when she showed us the Sparks. Then, she showed me the Pink one.
Kyle and I went home and hammered out the pros and cons of both cars, and I also "test-drove" my co-worker's Ford Fiesta (another car I wanted to look at). I really liked all three, but the brand-new Spark was the cheapest, and the one I REALLY wanted. Both Kyle and my Dad are terrified that I am going to get hit driving this car and get totaled because of the small size of it, but I do A LOT of driving around and now that gas is $$ again, it made sense. Also, its pink! I am not THAT much of a pink person, but it is an almost dusty purple-pink. These photos are a bit dark, so that does not help. But yes, I love my pretty car! First car I have ever owned with working A/C, electric windows, and does not burn/leak oil. Also, the locks work! Woot-woot!
