That's what I have left on my lease for my car. It was probably stupid of me to do a lease, but that's what I did.
The car I have is nice, and fast, but it feels too grown-up for me, like I should be driving 3.2 kids around in it.
I'm not 100% ruling out buying the car after the lease ends, we'll have to see what the deal is.
Yesterday, we went to the Cleveland Auto Show.
I forget that it really this "show" isn't horribly conducive to looking at automobiles. The number of snot-nosed brats who sit in the cars and pretend to drive them so their parents don't have to watch over them is annoying. Ditto with the lady who wouldn't leave the car, or let her husband leave, so she could email - for TEN MINUTES! Really??
I am not sure exactly what I'm looking for. The Kia Optima looked nice - and reasonably priced. Ditto with a few VWs too. Kia also has a new car coming out in 3-4 months which looked very cool - but it was on a turnstyle and you couldn't get near it. It's priced a little high, but we'll see once it is in a showroom.
I don't understand the Kia marketing strategy of rodents in hoodies to sell cars. Who is the fucking demographic for this idea?
Yeah - so not me. I mean, it is me, but it's not.
So 710 and our friends just made the rounds at the auto show and left with no new car - not that we were planning to - though I did win a leather coin purse. whoo-hoooooo. Thank you Toyota!
Oh, and I got my picture taken with a picture of Superman. ....or a cut-out replica of Superman.
Our friend, Sal, asked 710 if he wanted his picture with Superman too - he declined. I immediately chimed in: "he doesn't need a picture, he already sleeps with Superman every night!"
...that might have got an eyeroll. Or three. Or is it six?
