    I SHOULD! AIB Should I or Shoudn't I? Yes...another car thread.

    If you read the thread where I was looking to buy a car, I actually did it.
    I'm am looking out my office window at my 2005 Subaru Forester.

    I'm very pleased with my choice, but does this make me a yuppie/hippie the kind you see around Boulder?
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Congrats. Can't say that I have ever been to Boulder. Maybe someone else knows the answer to your question.

    Yes, yes, and...................yes!

    A new Subaru is OK, now if you had bought a rickety old 1992 Subaru Loyale, then you would surely be labeled a dirty, hippy liberal.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    So I'm just a liberal then? I guess since I live 30 miles north of Boulder.....

    As long as you don't loiter about on Pearl St Mall.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Did it come with various left-wing protest bumper stickers installed at the factory?

    Congrats on the new ride. I always remove (or don't allow) the dealer to put their stickers and crap on my car. Uhh hello I am paying for the car so take your crap off it!

    Glad I traded in my 92 loyale last week for. . . . a 2005 Forester. Now, I am a liberal lesbian. Sweet.

    Zman: can't see the pics, you got black right? Mine is black with tan interior.

    Nice ride zman. OT: But unless you were a catcher on the baseball team and straped on the tools of ignorance, turn the hat around....the bill goes in front for everyone else...I've told my sons that and they followed my observation.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    You sound like my mother. I was catching a baseball earlier....

    Cololi Yes it is black with tan insides.

    As for the Lesbian-ish of my car... I think that designation is great! I LOVE WOMEN!
