|About Me:||I'm almost 50 and have had a variety of cars, mostly new, none of them very spectacular, although I did briefly have a Jag which, whenever I was driving into a sunset, made me feel like I had a big moustache and was flying a Spitfire home after a raid over occupied Vermont. I was driving a Hyundai in the snow just after Christmas and I wrecked it...slid off a straight road at 25 mph if you can imagine the embarrassment.
Anyway, I got all the car mags for local stuff and found a nice 2003 gold sunfire with 51000 on it and about 3 grand below Blue Book. Unfortunately I drive 150 miles a day round trip to and from work, so I suppose the bank and the junkyard are in a race to see who gets it first. I would like this to be my last car as we are on a pace to retire when I'm 55 and we have been buying a piece of land in Fiji to retire to, so I need to be proactive keeping this rather nice car together. I probably get about 30 mpg out of it, which is really not bad; it's just bad when gas is so expensive and you pay 60 bucks a week just to get to work. So you baby the car at 55 and only occasionally allow yourself a few screamin' miles on the freeway. I realize complaining about 30 mpg from a pretty sporty car makes me a something in your eyes. Not sure what, but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough.

|What's New:||My birthday november 2nd
I got sick of the stock CD player in the Sunfire chewing the hell out of my cds that I bought a 20-GB mp3 player and hooked it direct to my power amps. I'd like to put it through a head, because the volume on the "mixtapes" is all over the place and I need more control. But, I dunno how to get the stock head out, and it's usually a pain in the arse to dig the dashboard open and the new ones never fit the holes.
