what do you think, Henry?

Henry's Model T Ford
We have spent the better part of 2 days car shopping, test driving, researching and mulling things over. Henry would be astounded in the technology that exists now. I am astounded by the things that auto manufacturers seem to think I need to be able to have a safe, reliable, gas efficient RED car. We haven't shopped for a brand new vehicle in 11 years.

I don't need a car to autosync to my cell phone, be my eyes with a remote camera when I back up, call the police or warn me of an alien invasion, and I don't want white, silver or beige, I want RED!

After looking at American made, Japanese made, Korean made, hybrids, SUVs, sedans, and driving half a dozen, climbing in and out of backseats, checking cargo space and looking under the hoods for ease of servicing, we settled on a new Suburu Outback. It is Suburu's version of RED, something called Venetian Red Pearl. It is at least a real color.

We will say farewell to our trusty Highlander on Monday and hope for similar good service and safe driving for the next 10 years in the Outback.
