New Ride!

Look what we got! A 2004 Nissan Pathfinder.

It's not new, but it's new to us and a definite step up from what we were driving:) Pretty sure it's the youngest car I've ever had.

We bough it from an individual that we found on autotrader.com. Chris had me call for more details about the car because he was bouncing Otto and I almost laughed out loud when I reached the seller's voice mail. His name? Jeff Gordan. That's right people, we bought a car from Jeff Gordan.

Apparently the poor guy doesn't find his name as humorous as I do. He told us that he has heard every joke in the book and once was seated next to Dale Earnhardt Jr in a restaurant because of it. He dislikes it so much that he is taking his wife's last name later this year. Wow.

It's a single owner vehicle. His wife received it as a college graduation present, but their nanny has been driving it for the last two years because his wife upgraded to a Lexus and he got a BMW.  It has been well maintained, garage kept, and is fully loaded. Hopefully it will top the Maxima's track record for dependability!
Pretty cute hind end, don't you think Lisa?;)
The Maxima's name was Mabel, and the truck is called "The Beast", what shall we call this one?

PS: Don't worry Michael, the SMU plate cover is history as soon as Chris get's home.


  1. God is good and gives good gifts!! Happy for you guys.
    Thanks for letting the grandfolks(Nana & Gaw- Gaw) take a spin , you made their week!
    See you when you come to strip poor Mabel of her valuables.

  2. I think the Otto-cruiser. Get it!?!

  3. Wow congrats! Enjoy your new ride!
