Over the past few months my husband has been insisting that I get a new car. His recommendation has been that I get a new car, he takes my Camry '94, and we either sell or trade in his '00 Tacoma TRD -4 door...and that way everyone is happy. I have a new car, he saves on gas, and he is still able to haul his bicycle and other cycling "stuff" in the Camry.
Now let me tell you, there is nothing wrong with my '94 Camry...it has a few dings (a major one which my husband did) and it is missing the radio antenna (my garage door and me- twice!), but I still runs very well.
Do I want a new car? Yes, I would love to have a new car, but who wouldn't want a new car? Do I want to make payments on a new car? NO! Do I need a new car? NO!
If, however, I were to get a new car- I would get a "hybrid". We've test rode a Civic, and Accord Hybrids- both by Honda. I loved the Accord! But I also know that the Toyota Camry Hybrid comes out this year...and I really love my Camry.
Anyway, the truth finally came out...my husband finally told me the reason why he's been insisting I get a new car. If I get a new car, he can then justify the fact the purchase of his new motorcycle! Yes, he wants a motorcycle!! He knows exactly which motorcycle he wants, and he even has our leather "motorcycle" outfits selected! Ha!
By the way, my answer is NO to the purchase of the motorcycle, and to the leather motorcycle outfits! NO! NO! NO!
My husband drives too fast and too aggressive- sorry, NO MOTORCYCLE! Besides, he has MANY road bikes from which to choose from for a ride. He does NOT need another bike!
