It's time to start thinking about . . .

. . . buying a new car.

Red car in showroomAnd thinking about shopping for a new car is not a happy thought. Oh sure, it would be nice to have a new car, but on the pleasure scale, dealing with car sales persons is barely one step above having root canal work done.

Our current cars are in fine shape but getting along in years -- 19 years combined. With an average age of 9.5 years we are sure to have some costly problems before long.

To get us started here's a list of links to automobile companies and another to some sites that compare new car featutres and prices. These should help us avoid entering a showroom for a while.

Hi Ken,
I can't find your email address and I was worried about Hurricane Fay heading your way. The weather thing on your blog say clear at 8:30 am so I am relieved that you should be okay.
