As of tomorrow, we'll no longer be the owners of a 1993 Honda del sol. We're selling it to my 15 year old nephew. I have no doubt that within six months it will be unrecognizable due to the modification whims of said 15 year old. You know what I mean - large-loud muffler, neon, spinning rims and a spoiler the size of a surf board. I guess we always knew that would be the fate of the beloved green ride. It served us well for seven years.
So, out with the old and in with the new.
New Scion xB, that is. We ordered the car, lovingly referred to as "the box" last Wednesday evening. We've been looking at them since August last year when they were announced. They've been available on the west coast since last fall but went on sale here on June 23.
I'm not planning on quite the excitement that was stirred upon ordering the MINI last March but I am pretty stoked about it all. At least we won't be waiting five months for it like we did on the MINI. The dealer said it would only be a couple of weeks. If we wanted another color besides blue onyx pearl (pictured above) we could be driving it now. I'm sticking to my guns, though. I really want the blue. If two weeks passes and there's no word, I'll yield to another color so stay tuned for updates.
