I got a new Chevy Impala. The ride and the seats are very comfortable, handles well, doesn't jerk me around like my truck...now husband's truck...does, and IT'S MINE! No More being stuck at home all the time... Drum Roll Please!

Congrats on your own set of wheels! The freedom of the open road....fabric shops to be found and a trunk to hide the purchases in... LOL

Oh yeah thanks! I forgot to mention that I did a test that was above and beyond. Every vehicle had to pass the shop hop and sewing machine test and it did...with FLYING COLORS!!! PLUS...It has LUMBAR SUPPORT for when shop hopping or driving to quilt shows. VERY IMPORTANT!!!

You are right - that is VERY IMPORTANT!! I have to admit that I drive a mini-van - we have one kid, he is turning 22 tomorrow....but I can't give up the space of my van or the height of it - I am too spoiled!!!

Wow! Nice wheels. I have to laugh when I think back about the first car I owned. It was a gold color Chevy Impala, early 70's. Sure looked different from the model your driving! Enjoy having a brand spankin' new car.

Look out, now you will never be home to quilt. You will be out and about looking for fabric. LOL! Seriously, enjoy the new wheels.

Ahhh, nothing like the scent of a new car. Like the color, I am thrilled for YOU. Enjoy, buckle up and if you start to wander and wonder where you are, I live in NC.

Blessings to YOU.

Congrats on the new ride. As long as it passes all your tests, that is all that matters. I too have a mini van, or as it is frequently referred to 'the Granny van'. Perfect seating height for me. I don't have to climb to get in, or feel like I am sitting on the floor. Can haul the kids and their 'stuff'.
