I gots me a new car! Hyuck!

Post by Archonix » Wed Feb 19, 2014 11:43 pm

Yep, new car. The old one was starting to go a bit moist around the edges (I'm not kidding either - there was some sort of trapped moisture inside that meant it would mist up at the slightest provocation, and then there was always this horrible greasy film on the glass afterwards that I could never get rid of) and its electrics were just falling apart, not to mention the gearbox was veeeerrrrryyy slowly starting to give way. I worked out the cost of repairs and thought to myself "I could get a new car for that".

So I did.

And here it is!

I shall call her Truckie, and love her and hug her and wash her far too intimately every saturday morning.

For those interest: it's a 1999 Jeep Cherokee 2.6 TD Limited. Alloy wheels, four-wheel drive. Red.

That means it goes faster.

For those not interested, here's a pile of bengal kittens.

Red makes it go faster? No, no, no. You gotta get Cubert and Dwight to put a flame decal on it. That'll make it go fast.

Nice picture...looks like something that we'd see around here. Now...are the bengal tiger kittens in the car? Just kidding. Should we now call you Arthur "No Kittens" Jackson? Just kidding.
