I say “surprise,” because we had talked about replacing the mustang for something more practical. Since car shopping is a least favorite activity, I was surprised Lou set out on his own.
He found a Jeep Wrangler he liked, and made a deal.
Once I got to the dealership, with the dogs, he said, “Let's look at Grand Cherokees. We had been talking about trading the Toyota Highlander in for something bigger. I didn't think he liked the Grand Cherokees. We found one, made a deal in about 5 minutes, and then the waiting began. It just took a long time to do the DMV paperwork for two trade-in deals, and they had to prepare the new cars for us – they aren't going to let you out without the new car.
So, that was the surprising day. Carl, our nice salesman, had a good day…
As you can see, we were not adventurous in our choices – the Wrangler is much like the one we had in Arizona, and the Cherokee is white – just like the Toyota.
And, for once, my procrastination paid off. The Highlander was running on fumes when I pulled into the dealership, and I told Lou I needed gas for the ride home. Saved $60.
