After holding on to my little Ford Ranger for 11 years, I have finally broken down and bought the car of my (affordable) dreams, an '04 Arc Convertible!
I knew I wanted a convertible and had done my homework in trying to find the ‘perfect’ one. The safety features of the Saab (6 crumple zones, Onstar, side airbags, and a steel rollbar that pops out when needed) plus the 6-disc CD player plus the turbo speed and tight road handling made it a given that this was the car for me (plus any car I buy must have 4 seats).
All the little nuances in the vehicle, from where you turn the ignition to the comma used in the odometer to the ability to drive it like a stick even though it’s an automatic just screams UNIQUE. Now that we have sunny warm weather again (after three days of miserable rain and cold) I am as giddy as a school girl to get outside and cruise with the top down. Everything about this car is just really REALLY cool.
And the wife can keep her Avalanche as I filled my tank today with only 12 gallons (of course I pay fuel for both vehicles so it will hurt anyway:smack: ).
