As of yesterday evening, I once again have a car. After some waffling over what kind of car to buy, I went car shopping on Saturday to look at what turned out to be a questionable Outback with a dick salesman, and happened to notice a diesel ’96 Land Rover Discovery in one of the lots which perfectly fit my budget. At the time I kept looking, but my mind kept gravitating back to that one car, so yesterday I took it for a test drive, had it checked out by a Land Rover specialist in town who gave it a $2500 repair list but otherwise a clean bill of health, and at the end of the day I plunked down cash for $1500 off the sticker and drove it home. Now I just need to find the nearest diesel fuel station and possibly a place that has bio-diesel.
Photos to come shortly.
