New car in the driveway



Has nothing to do with us, I just thought I would share. I wanted something to drive out on the beach with and this fit the bill.

I LOVE the copper color of that 2gb. I thought only the 2ga came in that color, is that a custom paint job?

I really like the FJ Cruisers. I almost got a blue one, but since I only needed one car I went with the Boxster. Plus, I didn't want to pay the price at the pump. Don't they get like 14/16?

It is more maroon than anything.. Thanks for the comments. 20mpg. I don't work far from home so gas is not much of an issue. Now I just have to change my profile

I'm talking about the Eclipse, 2gb. I'm not an SUV fan.

I think that's much safer to take to the beach than your boxster if you'll be driving on any sand.
