Only 12 more days..
We've Carfaxed (after we put down a deposit, 'cause we're backwards like that..) and found out there'* been two prior owners. We have both of their phone numbers
Original owner had his name and address in the owner'* guide, and the second owners' insurance card was still in the glove box. I'm planning on contacting both owners tomorrow to see if they've got anything interesting to say about "our" car.
I can't wait to see what color the car actually *is*. It was a lovely shade of roadsalt the first time I saw it, and now, when I drive by the "car layaway holding pen" I can barely tell which snowlump is mine.
Thanks for the glorious welcome, guys!
