277/365 – Judge Rhinehold Versa Joan Crawford

You know, America never really gets the chance to brag.  We’re a pretty quiet, meek country who is shy about our achievements.  So, today, On America’s 236th birthday, I think we should really scream and yell, get drunk and set off dangerous, multi-colored explosives . . .

Yeah, Kid! It’s America’s birthday. Screw the salad and fruit. Time to party!

Well, everyone but Megan and I.  We’ve decided to sit in a Carmax for 6 hours to try and buy a new car.  One to replace the lemon that is Joan Crawford — our 2005 VW Jetta we bought EXACTLY a month ago.  The same car that just completely pooped out on us.

Carmax has agreed to buy back the car for full value so we can get a new one.  So far, we’ve tested a 2002 Toyota Prius (felt like I was driving a Tonka Power Wheels Truck), a 2006 Hyundai Sonata (smelled like cigarette smoke and piss) and a Ford Escape (too big for our taste).  We were feeling exhausted and defeated.  But we decided we needed to take our time and really look into this with patience.  Being impatient could take us right back to square one.  So we walked the lot and looked some of the cars.  All the good ones were taken . . .

Then we found this beauty.

2011 Nissan Vera -- Megan calls it Judge Rhinehold.  Because he was in the movie Vise Versa.

It was at least 2000.00 above our budget.  Still, it was a 2011 Nissan Versa.  It had 30,000 miles on it and would last us a long time.  We decided to go for it.  And because we put down another 1000 (on top of the 5000 we already put down on the Jetta) and the fact that Megan was first on the loan application and we got an APR the lowest Carmax had ever seen — 2.99%.  We won and we have a cool car!

Still we hadn’t eaten since 9:30am and it was now 5:30.  And it’s the 4th of July.  So we picked up our friend Angie, grabbed some burgers, felt like shit, went to Manhattan Beach, had a crappy dink that made me feel like more shit, ate a bunch of great ribs, felt like further shit all while we partied at the multi million dollar beach house of the owner of Skechers Shoes . . . then we drove home in our new car . . . feeling like shit

On the roof of the beach house with Robbo Bernstein!

 

Megan! She has a car now!

And a rusty satellite dish. Only the rich would forget they have a satellite dish.

Life is getting better.
