Bought a new car

I have been looking at getting a new car for awile.The gas is killing me,plus as we all know,it is next to impossible to fix it and drive it daily.I looked at getting a new truck.I test drove several F150 Super Crew trucks.They are not bad on gas for a truck,but the cost is one concern.I do not like carrying debt like that.The house is more than enough
Enter my dad,he has an 89 Thunderbird that needs a little work,just got it painted.He bought himself a new truck,then bought a new car for my step mom.He did not trade the bird in.It has a 3.8 in it,all options except for a leaky sunroof.Low miles,since it was my step moms car,she doen't smoke,doesn't work so it just got drove to the store and church.The store and church are each less than 3 miles away.Ford Electric Blue paint,blue cloth interiorI gave $500.00 for it,insurance is alot sheaper than the trucks also,plus the gas savings.I found a guy to give me $500.00 for my SHO so it is in a sense free.What a deal.
