Well, I added a 2nd car to my stable today. Well, not exactly as it is for my girl, but it is my car in my name none the less. Anyway, after doing some extensive searching and test driving, I picked up a 98 Aurora with 141k for $3500. Not too shabby as it was in great shape, clean, ran nice and smooth. It has some nice leather, sunroof, and a decent Bose system(makes her happy at least). I noticed it must have had some work done to it as there is no longer an emblem on the hood and I noticed a couple light hints of overspray in a few inconspicuious places. This didn't bother me as it is a pearl white car and whoever did the work did a great job of matching and blending- which I understand is tough with pearls. Anywho, here are a couple pics.
She asks me if I'm jealous- and I can't lie and say I am a little bit. But me and my Bonneville are still tight. I just want that 4.0L V8... A man can dream
The Aurora was the first car we test drove. After spending the day hitting a bunch of lots and testing a dozen other cars, the Aurora just kept looking sweeter and sweeter. I was surprised at how much "junk" cars are selling for at many of the lots. Check engine lights on, airbag lights, broken dash parts, missing *****, dead power locks/windows, idle like a choking horse, etc. So many cars look good from the street but end right there.
