A few months back, there was a picture on the cover of a JCrew magazine of the back end of a car that I looked at Aaron and said "That is a really nice looking car. One day, I'd like to own a car like that." I didn't think anything else about it. Well, last Monday driving back from my parents for labor day, Aaron said "What if we got one of those Wagoneers?" To which I responded "What's a Wagoneer?" "That car you showed me on the magazine a while back, that's a Wagoneer." (I told you I hadn't thought any more about it!) We talked about it a little, looked online and found out they are something of a classic. Aaron did all kinds of research on them, and looked online for them at used car sights. These cars have such a following that you can actually buy them, completely rebuilt/restored from this guy out in California for like $30,000. Well, if we had that much we would be able to buy a new car! We found a few in pretty good condition in our price range, but most of them were several states away. I finally suggested we look on Craigslist, and wouldn't you know it, we found one, color and interior we wanted, in GREAT shape, in our price range, and in Dallas, GA...only an hour and a half away. Is it just me, or is that kind of a God thing? We went up and looked at it, Aaron fell in love, (I'm pretty smitten myself) and we drove it home that night.
His name is James, and who wouldn't be smitten with someone that good lookin'? Aaron really enjoys driving it, and to me that's totally worth it. He came home this past wednesday night and honked the horn in the driveway and "asked me out" for ice cream. I must say, he also looks good driving it. It was owned by a mechanic previously, who took amazing care of the car. All it needs is a tune up and an AC repair. We are SO thankful! God answered my prayers far and away above all I could have expected.
