Ridin' Dirty:White & Nerdy

As my husband and I were returning from our favorite thrift store on Saturday morning, he saw it.

By it I mean a car he fell instantly in love with.

It may be safe to say that he loved this car quicker than he loved his wife, but I won't because that would hurt my feelings.

He talked about the car. He researched the car. He ran the numbers on the car. He went to look at the car.

I returned to the dealership with him last night and after negotiating to my liking, he bought the car.

What kind of car you ask?

Prepare yourself.

Are you prepared?

I mean really!


My husband bought a Mercedes Benz.

Pick yourself up off the floor.

Put your tongue back in your mouth.

Pop your eyes back in your head.

It gets better.

Indeed it gets better Internet. I wouldn't toy with you about such a thing!

The car is fabulous! Leather interior. Sunroof. Shiny woodgrain dashboard. Fancy schmancy radio/cd player. Power everything. Things I didn't know could be power are indeed power. Third row seat, seating up to seven people. Rides like a dream.

Now you think I'm just bragging don't you?

Are you ready to really have your eyes pop out of your head? To really have your jaw hit the floor?

Did you notice the third row seat?

Yup, it's a wagon!

Now you're confused, aren't you?

Wanna know the even bigger kicker to it?

(Drum roll please!)

The brand spanking new (to us) Mercedes Benz Wagon is a 1989!

Yes, you read that right: nineteen eighty nine.

My husband's dream car is an old wagon and it's now his.

I'll post pictures later as my cell phone pictures do not do justice for this lovely vehicle.

That was such a great post! I was drooling the whole time. I love it! I can't wait to see pics. My husband says you can drive a Mercedes forever. I guess he's right 1989! That's amazing!
