If it is even still running. Buying a newer vehicle makes no financial sense.

On the other hand, We just have to have a place for those grand kids.

Yeah John my wife drives the nice late model mini van and I drive the Rambler, it's perfect, I have the van for those drives out to Sacramento to see my kids and grand baby (another is on the way, this time my daughter, I can't wait!) so to drive the Rambler makes perfect sense for me.
