And The Car We Got Is A.............

Hey friends!

It's been a while since my last post!!! WOW! Life has been B-U-S-Y!!!!

THANK you all so very much for all your feedback on my last post. You were ALL a huge help in more ways than you know! After looking for the last couple of months, we finally bought a car for Morgan.

I must admit that the car we ended up with would not normally have been our first pick for several reasons. However, there were certain things that were in our favor;

It's a car that is not too small or too big for Morgan to handle.
We didn't have to go over our set budget to buy this car.
In Morgan's favor....it's RED and a bit sporty.
Also in her favor...the insurance....full coverage is VERY affordable.

Let me briefly tell you that the things that we were able to do with this car before purchasing it are remarkable.

Dirk and I went to look at the car first without Morgan. The was the plan all along whenever we actually found a car. We didn't want to take her because....well, we all know how dramatic teenagers can be. Anyhow, Dirk and I went to see the car and just fell in love in love with it. The next morning we took Morgan out to see the car. Before we could even come to a complete stop, she was panicking for us to let her out to see the car.

Okay ready for this? The owner let us have the car for the entire day!!! We test drove it again. Morgan drove it. We asked the owner's permission to take the car to a local mechanic shop. Since it was a used car and we don't know diddley-squat about cars, we felt that we needed to have it checked out by a mechanic. It passed the test of being a good car to buy.

Soooooooooooooooooooo, we bought it!!!

For the most part, we all won. Morgan is a very proud car owner.

We had a couple of friends ask if we were worried about her driving a sports car....
Morgan's personality is not speeding. Though we could be wrong, we're not worried about her speeding. There were a couple of reasons why we first ruled out a sport car....insurance and budget. Well, after checking the insurance before buying it, that excuse was taken away. And since it didn't cause us to go over budget....well, that took away the other excuse.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..... we bought her a Dodge Stealth!!!

What do ya think??????

I think the car is AWESOME!! It sounds like the entire process went better than expected!! Everyone's happy, and Miss Morgan has a totally cool car!!

Kristin said...

Ooh! That so would've been my dream car back when I turned 16! I think that is awesome!! I think that's great that you were able to get her what you wanted and something she would love too! I bet she is so excited!! I promised myself when my girls were old enough, I would get them something they liked too because I remember being so disappointed in my first car. I was appreciative, but you know how hard it is being a teenager! I'm so proud of you and for Morgan too!

I've missed you! Hope you have been having a great Summer!!

That car is so cool! She is one blessed girl. So glad everything seemed to work out perfect!

Jennifer said...

Omgoodness! What a great looking car--and I know she is excited. Keep us posted? BTW---how old is Morgan? Our oldest will be driving in about 6 month's or so...and it seems like kids are getting their cars younger & younger these days...well at least younger than when I first got mine. I think I was 17.

michele said...

SMART choice!! She is going to look great in it too -- although I am pretty sure that Morgan of yours would look great in any car :) Nice going!:)

Lee said...

COOLEST CAR EVER.
I am SO jealous.
-runs to mom- Moooom, can I PLEASE get a car?

Really though, that's great! I bet she loves it!

Michelle said...

She is definitely a blessed young lady!!!! I'm happy for all of you!!!

Lorrie said...

I think it's a good choice. My parents bought me a car as well when I turned 16 and I WAS the speeding type...so I got a sedan...but my sister wasn't so she was better off with a sports car.
Great choice.

Blessings..

Great car! Lucky Morgan! It can be so scary buying a used car because you just never ever really know what you're getting yourself into. But it looks like you got a great deal and I know you feel good not going over your car budget. Great car!
