Goodbye, Beast

Bob has been looking for another car for me for ages. He's checked the Tribune every Saturday, kept an eye on various internet sites, and finally narrowed it down to a 2004 or 2005 Lincoln Town Car with no more than 75,000 miles AND at a price we could afford. We really do NOT want to make car payments again.

Saying goodbye to the Beast is tough. It's so distinctive that I never have any difficulty finding it among other cars in parking lots. It's big -- it seats 6 in the car and 4 in the trunk. It has a cassette player so I can listen to all the old books that aren't on CDs.

But at 204,000+ miles, Bob was ready for me to trade up so he wouldn't worry when I was on a long trip.

On Saturday, August 8, we said goodbye.

And purchased the "Beastie Boy". It's a 2004 Lincoln Town Car with 60,000 miles and enough bells and whistles (including both a cassette player AND a CD player!!) to even make me happy.

I don't have any pictures of it --- because --- it just looks like every other car on the road.

But I do like it.

I just don't LOVE it.
