$60,745 – Revisited

Originally posted February 7, 2013

Last night, while sitting at the Y for swim team lessons for the bazillionth day/hour in the past year, I got tired of working, reading, playing Scrabble.

So I built my dream car.

It’s only $60,745.

I’ve wanted this car since I was 25.

In my mind, it’s kinda like a tattoo… I wanted it when I was 18, but waited until I was 25. I still wanted it, so I got it.

I’ve wanted this car since I was 25. I’ve waited until I’m 40 and I still want it . . .

Somehow, I don’t think this will end as happily as my tattoo hold-out did.


Um – it turned out :-) This beauty is now living comfortably in my garage, right behind my Highlander. Woot woot!

It is not new and it cost nowhere┬áNEAR the price in the title . . . but it’s beautiful and fun and shiny and fun and awesome and – did I mention fun? Now to figure out how to keep a black car looking clean when you live on a gravel road!
