and the winner is...

...2010 Toyota Corolla!
So happy with this choice! I went into the dealership on Friday night, and walked out owning this car. I picked it up Monday, and I think I love it even more. It's dark charcoal grey (because we know how important colour is), and has everything I wanted. And only 8 km on the odometer when I picked it up! (there's a few more kms on it now...)

Nothing that came up at auction was right, so instead of making sacrifices, or settling for something, we went with new.

They even took my Civic as a trade in and gave me more than I would have thought - unbelievable what a good detailing and engine shampoo can do for the resale look of a car...


It got the seal of approval from my son and his friend, so that's good.


All in all, I feel really good considering I just spent thousands of dollars on something other than yarn... but the bathroom renos have been put back a bit - the guy doing them had a bit of a family emergency, so we've adjusted the timetable. At least it didn't happen in the middle of the reno!

Yay for new cars! That's a nice one, for sure.

Cool!

I'm still holding out for a Tesla, which means I'd have to, um, write a bestseller first.

Next year we're gonna have to go car shopping. If not sooner. Fingers crossed the Boat makes it through another winter.
