New Car!

Posted by Furiosa's Sidekick , Sep 17 2012 · 206 views

new car
New Car! Item by item, I'm getting the things that I require in order to lead a rather stable life.

Life in San Antonio has been different... way different than I had expected. Work is work and will always be work, and I'm still getting used to my shorter evenings.

The most recent item in my list of things I need is a new car. My old one looked okay, 2003 Ford Taurus, but it wasn't dependable. Going to work every morning was like playing a game of Russian roulette with being late. Had that not been an issue, I would've held off, but not that I have it, I gotta say I like what I've acquired!

It's a 2013 4-cyl Nissan Altima. Redesigned, black, sleek, all black interior, and a cool display up front. And the ride's a lot smoother.

I'm not a car guy so I won't be able to give you all the specs off the top of my head. I just know it has good MPG rating, automatic transmission (always - I'm never going stick), and 182 HP engine.

Because stick shifts are finicky beasts, like a cat but with even less control and also part of 2 tons of metal.

Xaeraz hit it right on the head. It looks awesome when someone else does it though!

Yeah, but it's significantly less awesome when you can't even work the clutch long enough to start the thing. =P

Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out by not having learned stick shift, but only because, as you said, it does look awesome when someone else does it.

Your new car is nice, but manual transmissions are nicer.

Congrats!
