Buying A Used Car Is Really Like Recycling

Joy Ann is my wife and works at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. The Phil, as it is known, is only a mile and a half from our home. Because It is so close Joy Ann comes home for lunch every day. It is a 3 mile round trip and she makes the trip twice a day. That is only 6 miles a day or 30 miles a week.

My office is through the hedge and around the corner from our front door. It is not even far enough to make it worth taking my bicycle out of the garage. The biggest hazard during my commute is the potential for cobwebs as I pass through the hedge.

It is accurate to say, “we drive very little.”

We use to have 2 cars. Then it was only one car. The one car we still have is a leased Toyota Corolla. The Corolla costs next to nothing to operate. The lease is almost over. We have to return the car to the dealership in a couple of weeks. The lease agreement says we  can drive the car 36,000 miles during the lease period. We have about half that many miles on the car. So now the question is, “What to do? What to do?”

There are a lot of cool cars available but does a new car really make sense for us? It would be more economical to take a taxi cab every where.

On Sunday our sons Jay and Grayson, that work here at 2 Way Radio Express, and I found a car on Craigslist and went for a test drive. The car is a 1995 Buick Riviera with a super charged motor. Whew! That thing can fly and the woman that owned it only wanted $1500. It is the first used car I have bought since I don’t know when.

So now we are are like a couple of kids riding around in a 1995 hot rod will no lease payment. I am sure the Buick is not  going to get as good mileage as the Corolla but we don’t drive much. Our carbon foot print has got to be a size 4 or smaller. Buying a used car is really like recycling.

If you need help with 2 way radios give us a call. Doing business with us is easy.

Best Wishes,
