    Welllll....we bit the bullet. I had an 05 Honda Civic with 180,000 miles on it and I commute 120 miles a day for work . The car had $7500 worth of damage done by a deer to the front end when it was two months old and then in October of 2010 I was rear ended doing another $4500 worth of damage. So my $10,000 civic has had $12,000 worth of work done to it lol. It now needs new tires, timing, oxygen sensor....It doesn't owe us anything at this point. It has done us well though so I can't complain. So we went and purchased a new car however I am just not looking forward to car payments as the Civic was paid off in 2009....sigh it is what it is I guess lol We bought a Dodge Avenger and it is in my favorite color-orange!!! I will post pictures as soon as I pick it up...hopefully tomorrow.
    Hugs
    April

    Orange is a lucky color for a car. We had a 1975 Orange and white Scout till the late 90s when my DH had to quit driving, and it nearly broke his heart to sell it. Sold the second person who saw it, he kept it so immaculate and tuned up. Every 3 thousand miles it got new liquids in it, no matter what the manual said.

    Good Luck with your new Orange car.

    Hey April, Since you like orange so much maybe you can give me some help/hints about the quilt I need to make for my DGD who loves orange. It will be twin size so she can take it with her to college in the Fall and use it as her bedcover. I normally would first pick a focus fabric that had orange in it, and then add orange and other colors from the focus fabric. Problem is that there doesn't seem to any nice patterns with orange in them. What do you think of a two color quilt, many different oranges with a cream fabric? May in Jersey

    Yay for you April....you bought a new car to match your Hug Quilt! That makes me feel so much better about buying a new car to match my Ralph Lauren Sunglasses!

    LOL, I have a massive ORANGE 1999 F-250 Power Stroke Diesel PU/truck. It's a monster but a healthy one. It looks brand new cept for the little dent I put in the door. Darn it.

    Congrats on your new car. I don't think I have ever seen a orange color.
