New found appreciation for my car

The past few months I've been playing with the idea of getting a new car. There's nothing wrong with it (runs great) but after 13 years the interior and exterior are really starting to show their age and the electrical gremlins pay regular visits.
Well, I just got back from a 2 week long business trip to China where I spent a lot of time riding around in crappy buses, taxis and Buicks (They're very popular there. As well as VWs). When I finally got back to the motherland and got in my car at the airport to drive home, I immediately knew why I liked this car so much and why I decided to buy it in the first place.
I think I'll hold onto my cash for a while until the old babe finally bites the dust.

Good choice. You can never argue with a man who saves money by making a smart decision.

Yeah, if you put a few bucks into it to fix all of the things that are bothering you, you will want to keep if for a while longer. The new cars are just not the same. As mentioned, you also save a lot of cash.
