Wednesday, May 14, 2008 - GMC Jimmy - Hells Yeah
I have bought my very first car. It's second-hand and a bit of a beater. Primer red with glossy red spray patches. You can scratch the paint off with your fingernails. I freaking love it.
When I was younger I remember really wanting a red, beaten up old Toyota pickup truck, a light duty hi-lux or something. The Jimmy is kind of like that, but a bit smaller and with a bed cover attached. I'm very happy. And so is Sean (my partner). He's restoring a C3 Corvette and the engine is very similar, so he can help me when SHTF. ^_^
Anyways, I've set myself the task of learning to drive within a month. I'm more worried about the initial test than the driving test - my memory is rubbish. I think driving an automatic Jimmy is much like carefully pushing around a huge cardboard box. But made of metal. And capable of causing great damage. *sweats*
Should be great fun. >_>
