I Just Got A Car!

Cory Gregory on Friday, 22 June 2007. Posted in Co-op, Student Life

Well, as you can tell from the blog title, I now have a car. Once upon a time, I was in the process of getting a job at Lockheed Martin. The office is about 20 minutes from my house and no way could I borrow my mom's van everyday. I have been looking for a vehicle that is both reliable and not too expensive. That's pretty hard to find when you have limited money. My mom (she's a bus driver) was on her route when she spotted a red Volkswagen Jetta for sale. She took down the phone number that was written on the car and gave it to me when she got home. Ever since I started driving, I have wanted a Volkswagen Jetta. I don't know much about cars, but I have always thought that Jettas were wicked cool lol.

I went with my mom to look at the car the next day. We got information about the car from the guy that was selling it and I got to drive it around. It's a red 1994 Jetta and it has about 115,000 miles. The guy that owned the car took very nice care of it and he hooked it up with a cd player and new speakers! This blog entry is like a badly-written movie since the title kind of gave away the ending. I bought the car yesterday and I drove around in it all last night with some of my friends. It's nice not having to rely on others for rides. I only plan on driving it while I'm at home. There's no point in bringing it to school since everything I need is on campus. Plus, I don't really have the money to pay for insurance year-round. But, I will be able to enjoy my new car for the next two months at least. :)
