the car salesman

runs out of deals...

Actually, I'm sure there is a car out there for me. I just haven't had time to go shopping for it yet.

I do know that I had better luck with my Toyota Corolla than any other car I've owned.

I could write novels about the other cars. The Chevy Cavalier that couldn't handle the Tioga Pass in Yosemite. The Volkswagen that ran out of oil. The Buick that broke down on Highway 46 between the One and Paso Robles. The Plymouth Duster that didn't have a trunk lock (we used a screwdriver). The Chevy Vega that caught on fire.

The Corolla? It was sort of the energizer bunny. But, alas, it's in the wrecking yard now. The question now is whether to get another Toyota, or take my chances with something different.
