    Well, after a lot of research, I decided on a Honda Civic LX. As much as I'd love to get a new car, my current finances can just barely handle the insurance and finance payments. So, to give myself some financial headroom I decided to get a used 1996 Civic LX that almost looks brand-new (for a mere fraction of the cost of a new 2004 model). I get to pick it up within the next two hours or so.

    Man, I'm excited!! At last my first like-new (to me) used car that won't have problems every month! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats, Brian. I bought my first new "NEW" car last year. I understand where you're coming from. Enjoy, and hope it performs well for you.

    Man, am I colored red with embarrassment right now. Went down to the bank to get a cashier's check to pay for the car realized that it's Columbus day. Argh!! In all the excitement and rush to get there I didn't even realize the banks are all closed today. Looks like I pulled a Homer Simpson. D'oh! :b [​IMG]

    Oh, well. It'll still be there tomorrow! Man, I can't wait! [​IMG]

    I wonder if Chirstopher Columbus had the same problems. Imagine him going down to buy the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria, only to find the boat place was closed for Columbus Day. [​IMG]

    Mark- ROTFL!! That would be very interesting to see. [​IMG]

    Anyway, I finally got my car this morning! Man, it's gorgeous -- so much better than my previous car. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. Plus, because it's such a piece of crap I don't even think anyone will pay much. But we'll see what happens.

    I'm so glad to get this new used car -- excellent value and an excellent ride to boot. [​IMG]

    Nothing better than getting into a new car (or something better than your last one). [​IMG] Congrats Brian. I assume you've been crusing the roads today (instead of the net)? [​IMG]
