     I don't know how fancy your cars are but for me this is amazing!  And I'm doing it all on my own!  (Super proud of myself!)  Of course the Grandmother and a few other people have put up a million and one barriers for me regarding this car, because they think it's too expensive and I won't be able to afford it.  She also mentioned crap like buying a house, getting married and making babies, and not being able to afford it.  But I don't care!! I definitely don't have wedding or baby fever so I'm okay thankyouverymuch. 

    What do you think??  I'm getting it on Friday!!
