    I don't do anything spur of the moment. Heck, it took me 3 years to finally buy a new computer. I'm a planner.

    But I got up today and decided to go looking at cars and just bought it. Didn't need a new car. Didn't even think I wanted a new car.

    I took a picture of it with my phone and sent it to Mr creek (who is out of town) and said, look at what I just bought. He thought I was joking. But he took it well.

    Life's too short not to have a convertible.

    You know Creek, I'm very much the "planner" as well. I had all these big plans for my 40th birthday. I was going to fly to Italy for 10 days. Then I thought I would buy the new convertible. By the time the birthday came around, no passport and no intention of buying a new car, since I had just paid off the last one and was enjoying the freedom of no more carpayments.

    Sometimes I wish I could just let my hair down, so to speak, and just do something spur of the moment. My ma keeps telling me that I should do something special for myself. Little does she know, I went "crazy" the other day and bought myself some new t-shirts and socks, while Christmas shopping. Whew, talk about good times.

    You rebel!!

    Go take a couple test drives. Even if you don't buy, it's still fun.

    Nice looking car

    Good thing you posted this. I enjoy walking by your car in the morning and thinking to myself, "hmm...Creek's here today."
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    That's a hard-top convertible, is it not? My wife and I saw one of those when we bought her car. They're pretty sweet.

    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    Back in the day I had a 300Z and the G6 takes corners as well, if not better than the Z did. It's a 3.9L/240+ HP. And best of all - integrated XM radio. Man I sing good when I am alone in the car.

    It's my *I'm almost 51, I lost weight, Adam has a baby, I have damn melanoma and I'm having hot flashes* mid-life crisis car, I guess.

    It's funny, I was thinking about buying a Coach purse last week, but decided that was too much of an indulgence. So I got a car instead. Women, we're an odd breed.

    Coach is just a name. That car will take you places.

    Congratulations, Creek. I think it's a great purchase.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Looks like it'll be a lot more fun than a purse.
