What to do?
I started to work an hour early this morning because I was going to leave my car at the garage so they can fix the breaks and change oil and some other small things before the annual vehicle inspection. I like my little Mazda and as long as it’s cheaper to repair it than buying another car I thought I would keep it. But I know more and more things must be repaired soon so I was thinking this might be the last year for the little one, my Piglet as I call it.
The garage owner had promised me that he would have a car that I could borrow during the time I had mine at the garage and there it stood, a Saab Estate (I think it’s called 95) -01, blue and with a 2,3 liter engine with a turbo. Just as I was going to drive away he said, You can buy it for 7000 Swedish kronor (that would be around $ 1076 US). That’s not a good thing to say just before the old one is going to be repaired 🙂 I can’t find any rust at all on it and it’s so clean inside that it feels like new 🙂 So now I’ve sent lots of text messages to my work friend that knows a lot about cars (and has a similar Saab himself) He also knows people that sells spare parts cheap just in case anything would break.
It isn’t much money so that’s not a problem and it is an estate (or do You call them hatchback?) All my dogs would fit in it without any problems, they have already checked without my permission because I left a door open 🙂 I do hope I can clean it before I possibly leave it at the garage tomorrow, well if I don’t buy it that is 🙂 A Saab feels safe and it has heat in the winter, something all small Mazda’s seems to lack 🙂 The car taxes will be much! higher and the insurance cost too and it drinks more petrol too but not that much to be honest. It also has climate control, something I’ve never had before 🙂
I told him I would call him early tomorrow morning, there’s no use in fixing my old car if I’ll buy this one. there are a few things that needs to be fixed but he said he’ll do that. It leans towards buying it, if for no other reason that it is soooo comfortable 🙂 I’ll let You all know tomorrow what my decision will be.
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. I’ll start working an hour early tomorrow too since the plan was that I was going to get my old car back. Well I need to go to the garage anyway if I’m going to buy this one 🙂 It’s a bit funny really, I usually hate buying another car but I don’t feel a thing right now, usually I always feel so sorry to have to leave the car I own 🙂
Have a great day!
By the way! The first Crane has arrived to the lake, one month early!
