Is that your Volvo?

2 Jun

I will never forget the day a lady in Savannah asked me that question.  I was coming out of a gas station when I saw her checking out my Chevy Malibu Maxx.  She thought it was a Volvo because I proudly advertise for Andrew by having a “Volvo Construction Equipment” vanity license plate on the front.  It was so funny when she asked, “Is that your Volvo?” because she seemed so impressed and really liked my car – then I told her – “No, it’s a Chevy.”

Well, now we can answer that question with a “Why yes, that stunning piece of machinery is my Volvo.”  Today, Andrew traded in the good ol’ Trailblazer for this sweet ride.

What’s even better about how awesome it is – it’s going to save us a quite a bit of money each month (can you believe that?!?).  It’s such a great feeling to know we’ll be saving on payments and gas!  With Andrew driving 100 miles a day sometimes it was really getting sickening.

Finding this car and making the switch was anything but easy. For the past 3 weeks Andrew’s been researching Volvos and trying to find the perfect one for him.  He’s test driven so many and I know it was getting a little frustrating because he just wanted to be able to be done with it all and be confident with his choice.  Buying a used car is probably one of the most nerve-racking things to do – what if it just falls apart as soon as you get the keys?  At least with all the hard work Andrew put into this decision – I feel pretty sure that won’t happen.  (Knock on the Volvo’s wood paneling!)

I am just so proud of my Volvo man – not only because he now drives a car that’s freakin’ cool and classy – but because he does it wearing his South Park cheesy poofs t-shirt. He’s all mine!
