I forgot to explain why Jeremy was so excited to get his new truck....the car he was previouly driving was purchased for $800, if that gives you any clue as to the age and condition of the vehicle.
Don't get me wrong, we were grateful to have another car at that point in life and it did everything that a car really needs to do (meaning :get you from point A to B). But the AC went out a while ago, and it stinks like crazy because it burns oil when you drive, and forget about power anything! Jeremy would get home from work and I would make him change his clothes because he smelled like the car!
We didn't even name this car. All of our cars have names, except this one. Kai referred to it fondly as "the blue car."
