I have a pretty new car, a Honda Civic and I am happy with it. I got it when it was brand new, my first new car. I went practical, good gas mileage, good resale value. The car I really wanted was a Volkswagan Convertible. My friend Sandy has it, in Pearl with leather seats. When I dirve with her with the top down I am in heaven. But the practical me says you cant drive with the top down when its -40 degrees out. So I made a good choice...Oh by the way the dream car is candy apple red and I am one hot thin looking mama in it. Thats why its a dream....you can see yourself anyway you want.
