Well, financed a thing, anyway. Salesman said he’d never seen a credit score that high in El Paso before. Not sure if he was buttering me up or what.

Prices for gently used pre-owneds are almost identical to something new off the lot. Needed something that I could count on running for several years, and could hold tubas. I’m pretty happy, aside from the fact that the Crystal Blue (think Mazda616`s 6 and CX-5) model I had gone to see had sold a half-hour before I got there. Had to settle for metallic grey, which I’m fine with...I mean, it’s no secret how much I love that blue.
