What I have vs. What I want
I drive a 1991 toyota 4x4 that was given to me by a friend. It's been a super reliable mode of transportation as well as a good truck for haulin' surfboards, mountain bikes and other junk. But the truth is it's pretty well beaten up and I feel a little bit embarrased driving it. I guess at 40 I feel like I should have a more respectable ride.
What I want is a new Toyota FJcruiser. They're pretty affordable and seem to fit my lifestyle. Unfortunately, my wife thinks things like mortgage payments, college funds and food in my kid's stomachs are a higher priority! So for now I will contently drive my truck until I can figure out a way to convince Rachel that food is over-rated.
