Look what I got over the weekend! My dad and I drove through a couple used cars lots but didn’t see much in our price range, so we headed into town to see what the dealers had in stock.
I had a wish list as long as my arm, but given my situation I kept that list to myself. I cannot believe that we found a car with EVERYTHING I wanted WITHIN our budget. (I say “our” like I had anything to do with this, but I plan to start paying them back once I get a job.)
The only negative? That stick-like object in the center of the console. Yeah… I don’t know how to drive stick. I understand the mechanics and I’ve sat next to other people while they learned to drive manual, I’d just never actually placed my foot on a clutch.
My mom gave me my first lesson on Sunday, then Monday I took him for a half hour drive. We live in a pretty rural area so I’m able to get it into 5th gear just on our street. I a total racecar driver! Then I took him into town and to the golf course. It was very exciting. I’m still working on reverse and I’ve yet to encounter a real hill (something I’m told will be quite frustrating) but so far so good.
Now… who can guess why he’s named Reggie?
