My lease on my Subaru was up and it was time to search out a new car. I have had a VW sedan, A Honda minivan, and a Subaru crossover. I wanted to try something different.
I decided to go with a Jeep Wrangler. Practical…kind of…It has enough room for my camera equipment, four doors with automatic locks and power windows for my kiddos. It is four wheel drive and should be able to easily handle a Colorado winter. The fun part….the top and a great stereo! It is a hard top for protection from the elements, but it can be removed in stages to reveal the free spirited driving only a jeep can offer. Fancy, refined, luxurious…..not so much but again there is a cool/fun factor that cannot be beat!
I test drove several over a couple of weeks and realized only then where my kids get their color fixation from. Beauty “thinks pink” and C loves all that is blue. Apparently my love of the color green goes beyond just a preference. With all the Jeeps in Colorado NONE of them were built with my required list features and came in my new love — Rescue Green ( a metallic color that shifts throughout the day from an army to a lime type color depending on the light). A couple of dealers thought I was crazy to be insisting on only one color. I refused to settle–especially on such a big purchase, after all we are not talking about a $40 sweater people. We ended up having it shipped in from several states away, but it was worth the wait and thanks to my wheeling and dealing hubby -who has friends in every business- it was still within our price range even with the shipping costs.
Here it is my new ride—My kids took my pictures in it. I think I might have budding photographers on my hands. They each wanted their turn behind the lens and snapped about 30 pictures of me in a single pose-I was patient as I thought of the hours I have made them sit in front of my camera. They did a great job
