Today I got a new car. Obviously it’s not “new” new, but it’s new to me. My old car was starting to have a bit too much issues to be easily fixed. Which wasn’t so surprising I guess since it was 17 years old. I’m amazed by how long it really lasted. I had it for 10 years!
Anyway, since I love in a remote area it’s nearly impossible to do anything without a car. My family helped me out to get a small loan (since I can’t get one myself due to being on disability benefits), and I’m now the proud owner of a new car.
It’s a Nissan Almera from 2004, and it’s red. The red bit is important. We had to go to Gothenburg to look at it and pick it up, so I got to drive it back home for the two hours it takes. I have to say I’m really happy about it. While it may be a bit on the small side, it drives really well and is really responsive. Also, I think it looks quite nice!
So, I’m happy! A car that I won’t be scared to drive more than a few miles in! *cheer*
