This is how we roll... Don't be jealous;)

Any 15 year old kid would love to have this car if he didn't have any friends, had very high self-esteem, or was very very poor. Well we aren't 15, can't consider ourselves poor next to a lot of the people here, but we have high enough self-esteem to buy this car. It seems to be a good deal and it will allow us to get around without using taxis and busses. The costs will all wash in the end but it will allow us to save some time which could open new worlds to us. It's a 1986 nissan that runs decent, and it has a manual transmission. The car, all the legal paper work, and insurance for six months will be around $1200. It's a great deal considering that you can't really find cheap cars here. Normally if someone has held onto a car like this it's cause they can't afford to sell it and buy another. We don't want to buy an expensive car and we will most likely be able to sell this one for a decent price after we find one that we will need. We will choose that car depending on what we're doing in ministry. This one just seems to make sense. Now I almost didn't want to post a picture cause I didn't want anyone getting jealous but here you are. Have fun!!

I'm excited for you (especially for Erin). No more scary taxi rides with not enough money :)

The fact that your car is cooler than my first car isn't part of my jealousy (okay, maybe a little). It's more the fact of having one which equals a lot more independence. How's the traffic down there? Is it insane?

Hey - if it runs and has 4 wheels it is a good deal! That is what we say here! Our car died on me today - in the middle of the road, going up a hill! Not Fun! I was grateful for some helpful neighbors!

Living in the motown, I see an abundance of two things: sweet rides and old beaters. I know one from the other. My friends, you have a sweet ride!
