    We were down to 1 car and back to 2. Then 2 became 1 car and 1 golf cart. We use the golf cart at the country club and drive within the community.

    Since, ahem, the one of us who drives the PT backed into a car in the CVS parking lot yesterday breaking one of the rear tail lights, I thought the PT was on its way to Kars for Kids for sure. Nope, Cliff thinks it should be easily replaced by him, but that remains to be seen. The timer is running to see when in February he'll get it done. Since it is half intact I guess we should take a look for its appearance when stepping on the brake during daylight hours in the meantime.

    Definitely, considering I came home after playing crunchie fenders and wrapped Christmas gifts without taking price stickers off and now have to open them all to remove the tags. I am losing it for sure!

    I hope you left a note on the other car.

    Someone backed into my parked car and at first glance it appeared not to be damaged but it was. No note. Repair cost more than $3K.

    There I am in my tiny PT, rummaging in my CVS purchases, listening to the elderly woman in the car to my left fend off a kind stranger who wants to help her with her car that won't start. "My husband is coming" she says to the man. In the meantime a big ol' honkin' SUV parks to my right, and the man hops out of the car. I was apparently somewhat crooked in my parking place, so as I back, and back, and back, very slowly so I can get to where I can see traffic in the lot around his car, CRUNCH. He wasn't even in the door at CVS so no note necessary.

    Prior to retirement I always had an suv/4x4 so that I could get to work in the snow. After retirement I switched to a sports sedan for daily driving and a new Corvette for weekends and fun.

    Just me but I had 3 vehicles until a year ago. My sister needed a car for her youngest son … the boy who regularly stayed with me from age 4 on --- he got my Ford Focus. My oldest vehicle is my 2007 Ford Ranger 4x4 Supercab (the small one not made for years now) and that is my work truck (under 75k). My regular vehicle is the Subaru Outback. I need both but mostly drive the Outback.

    I regularly have people asking to BUY my Ranger … it looks that good AND many people WANT that size truck. Plus, it has the highest level trim package back in its day. Of course, I could stay away from the Home Depot parking lots … in the contractors section.

    But I still have very fond visions of my old 944 White Porsche … never should have SOLD that 'guy magnet' road toy.

    My last new car was a 2014 Mustang GT bought in 2013 and I retired in 2017. I have not bought any vehicles since and don't plan on it anytime soon. I also have a 1998 Silverado 4x4 that I bought new which only has about 138,000 miles on it. I daily drive a 1992 Cavalier with 238,000 miles on it. It's my beater car. I also have a 98 1 ton Silverado that I use on the farm and it only has about 118,000 miles on it and lastly, I still own my 1970 Monte Carlo that I bought in 1987 while in college.

    As you can tell, I like vehicles and tend to keep them a long time. I wouldn't mind a new truck but with the crazy prices these days, it's not going to happen.

    If you have a good junkyard (We have LKQ), you could go pull the taillight from somebody's else retired one and put it in yourself.

    I have a Pacifica, upgraded from my town and country (with 300k) and love it. Stow and go make life easy.
