SUMMARY: I get only one inheritance, ever. So I should spend it profligately.
Meet MUTT MVR II! (AKA just plain MUTT MVR, because there's no room on the license plate for a II or even 2. I'll have to ponder possible solutions.)
They call it "Shoreline Blue Pearl." In sunlight it's metallic--well--dark gray/silver, really. But I like this marginally better than the actual metallic dark gray/silver ("Predawn Gray Mica"), and the color choices are all prosaic anyway (essentially white, gray, black, and I don't really want a burgundy car).
So, I have a nominally blue car for the first time.
Hoooo boy, bells and whistles up the kajinky!
Only my 2nd new car evah (out of 5 cars). I put 10 of these 12 total miles driven on this car. Woot!
Ringing the "Sold another car!" bell. First me, then the very helpful salesman, Gerry, because I insisted. We're both happy.
