But now we have.... Well, we bought our Christmas present. A brand new 2004 Honda Odyssey built in Alabama.
The first white car we ever owned. I love Black but they are so hard to keep looking clean. White hides a multitude of dirty sins. We think we will like it. It has built in navigation, so now instead of a woman in a box we have one in the dash, for me to argue with.
I normally don’t even drive a car until after I buy it. Yeah, I do ride in it though to see if the noise it too great. This one is pretty quiet. I have found that most cars above a 1990 drive and even look the same. Most Vans look alike, and many cars do. The shapes are normally the same because they are designed then tested in wind tunnels to find out the most aerodynamically shaped vehicle. They all want the least wind resistance to improve gas mileage. Therefore the shapes end up being nearly the same.
The old Odyssey goes to Mark. He is going to make a utility van out of it to carry his tools and park his big truck because of the gas mileage. The economy has put a crimp in his work.
Thanks for coming by the Log.
