Automotive Infidelity

My lovely little red car and I have been together for over a decade. It was love at first sight, and I had to beg, borrow, and practically steal to make her mine, since I hadn't even graduated from nursing school on that fateful day that I decided I would not live without her.

She traveled 90,000 miles in her first three years without a single complaint and zoomed me up, down, and across Idaho countless times with only 2 or 3 minor "sick days." I was quite loyal to my little car and have refused to make a change through good times and bad.

Lately, however, I find I'm frequently guilty of wandering eyes. It's such a cliche to admit that I'm going to trade her in for the newer sports model; alas, I'm only human - a weak, vain human...

Introducing the contenders for my next automotive life partner:

The Infiniti G37
The Volkswagen EOS

The BMW 135i

I'll pay for my infidelity (quite literally). But, I've made sure my little Cougar is going to a good home to live with someone who will appreciate her and give her the attention she deserves. Now, on to the task of figuring out how to raise the funds to woo my next car...
