My First Car...
Well really it's a truck! My middle son Josh bought his first vehicle today.
He saved and saved and saved some more til he had a nice nest egg. If you ask him he'll tell you it felt like forever saving!
If you had asked me last week I would have told you this deal was tenuous at best, but things worked out for him. So after 2 trips to Lancaster, the first to look at the truck, the second to pay for it and pick up the title, today was the payoff.
It started early this morning with an 9 am wake up call. Anyone that has a teen or a twenty yr old knows that 9 am on a summer day is just too early....3 hours to early to be exact!
After the 1/2hr. drive to the Department of Motor Vehicles and then the hour wait to get the title transferred and new tags, we were on our way to Lancaster again to pick up his truck.
Doesn't he look so proud? When he got home he had to bring his brothers out to show off his truck and of course as brothers do, they started goofing around. There are a few minor things to fix on the truck, but so far we haven't found anything major. One nice thing about this truck was it just went through PA inspection 2 months ago, so there shouldn't be too many unknown surprises for him when he takes it to get inspected here....Now to just teach him to drive!
