Dear flist,

I would like you to meet Castiel, my new baby car:

It's a 1997 Toyota Camry LE with only 79,380 miles on it. It's in excellent condition and drives like a dream - seriously, the ride was so quiet and so smooth, it was even better than my dad's Lexus. There's more pictures and videos on the dealer website here if you're curious.

The only downside is that I'll be paying a little more than I was hoping to spend on a car - $6,500, not including taxes and fees. Tax alone bumps up the price to $7k, and I'm not sure yet how much the fees will be, but my dad assures me it won't be much.

I haven't officially bought it yet because I need to wait until my paycheck deposits on Wednesday to have enough money to cover it. But I do have a $500 deposit on it, so it is mine.

Honestly though, I'm fine with the price, because I am in love with this car, and thrilled that it's MINE. This baby is going to last me a long time so I definitely think it's worth it. Can't wait until I have it so I can show it off to everyone, and put my UC Santa Cruz Alumni license plate holder on it - I'll take pictures then too haha.

After all these months looking for cars, the nightmare with the Passat (that car ended up needing $3k worth of repair work done, which lol no) and the nightmare I had this week checking out a 2003 Nissan Altima (the car was mostly decent, but needed a little work done to it and the guys selling it were SUPER sketchy), I'm also just glad that it's finally OVER. Now I can focus on moving out!
