Cowart's Common Room
I am so excited...

About 25 years ago I reached the height of my career. With that came a company car. I had a budget for a car and chose a black Metro GTI.

The girlfriend of our next door neighbour was at the same level as me, both tax managers, but she was in industry and I was in practice. The difference? She got a black Golf GTI.

I have had Golfs since, but have always lusted after a GTD (same as GTI but diesel)

Today I bought a black (it had to be black) Golf GTD. I don't care if I never buy another car. I have saved in my 'car account' for this for 25 years.

There was a bit of a downside today while I was doing a test drive. Himself in the back asked the salesman 'considering our age (ie my age) do you think we (she) will be able to handle the car?' It's a good job I was concentrating on driving.

I haven't decided yet if I will allow Himself to drive it. I'm thinking not.Evil or Very Mad

Fennie's Avatar Very HappyVery Happy Good luck - but black cars are horrible when it comes to showing every spec of dust and dirt. Let's hope himself is good with the pressure washer and polish.

KitKatCot's Avatar Black cars are not so bad at showing the dust etc. White cars are, I think worse. Himself has a white car and a pressure washerSmile

Lampworkbeader's Avatar I'm green with envy ... and to my way of thinking Himself should be catching a bus!

Ivy's Avatar For me a car has to be black ( beneath the cover of cocoa dust and mud) have fun with your new car.

KitKatCot's Avatar Thanks all! I pick it up on Saturday. I know cars are really only to get you from A to B but it was (or should I say is) my dream and it is going to have to last me for a very, very long time Laughing

Faith, I think I'm the same age as you. Smile
