Default Bought a new daily...

My job has me driving 500+ miles per week, decided that I needed something better on fuel. My truck gets a tick over 16 MPG.

I have been searching auto trader and Craigslist for the past three weeks. Found a 2004 Grand Am GT yesterday. 97K original miles, loaded with options, everything works. Needed a good cleaning, but otherwise in great shape. Picked it up for under $3000.

The first tank, mixed driving - 26 MPG. With less city driving, I expect it to pick up more.

While it has been a good car, I no longer need it. So... thinned the herd today and sold it to a good friend. Hoping it serves her well. I put over 22k miles on it in 14 months, never left me stranded.
