After much hassle and false hopes, I finally own my Prius Well – the bank owns it, but as long as I keep sending them money they’ll let me keep it Been a blast so far. Expect some pictures soon
I don’t know why, but I had the premonition that my car was going to show up with the wrong colour interior. Because of this, I double checked when I was talking to the dealer before to ensure that it was going to be the black exterior, grey interior, BC package car. So what shows [...]
Got the call on Saturday, my car is here. They had to clean it/wax it/inspect it and all of that kind of fun stuff, so I don’t have it just yet. I go Monday at noon to pick it up!!

So, my brother’s truck has been declared deceased. He’s been borrowing my car the last month or so while they tried to repair it – to no avail. I have been okay without a car, walking to work and calling my brother up when I needed a lift, but it gets annoying after a while. [...]
