Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
I'm Back. The car is still stuck in the snow.
The spousal unit surfaced after tennis and picked me up a little after 10.
Damn, her MDX is great in the snow. There was over 1' drifts by the entrance of the lot that she just cruised through. There is no way I would have ever hit the street. I had about 10" of snow in the drive that it just rolled through too.
What a pain.
I'm seriously looking at selling the Q45 and picking up another MDX. I've got my used car bro checking it out right now. He qouted me a rough $16K for my 02 Q45 premium (Seems like a steal, but I always get beat up on selling my cars) and thinks he can get a clean low miles 05 MDX for $26-28K. My wife's 01? MDX has crossed over 100k and I plan on offing it before next winter. Aside from having to put a new trans in and scheduled maintanance the MDX has been great and she has been after me for a new one. This gets me into an AWD replacement vehicle cheap, $12-14K. Then I can pick up a long term replacement for the Q some time next year and dump the MDX on her. As a plus, it doesn't kill the ZO6 budget.
Again, thanks for the offer of the ride!
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
