|2012 Camry from Brown’s Toyota in Glen Burnie, Maryland|
It has been 16 years since I bought a new car. You can see my old red Saturn station wagon in the background. It has nearly 194,000 miles and has suited me well. I’ve always loved it. It is practical, comfortable and dependable.
Now I have a new love…a cherry red Camry with some nice new features that my old car didn’t have, including blue-tooth for hands-free phone while driving. I answer with a touch to the steering wheel.
Of course, I like other things about it…good gas mileage, smoothness, dashboard readouts, comfortable roomy seats, nice sound system I can use with my iPod, design. However, one weak spot in design, at least for shorter people like me, is that when I back up, visibility is very slim. In my old station wagon I could see much better when I was backing up. Lately I’ve been backing up ever so slowly. People must think a senior is driving the car. : )
Oh, and before I forget to mention it, the people at Brown’s were very nice with a special big shout out to Shan! With her friendliness and professionalism, she made this experience a good one for my husband David and me.
This car has an aesthetic appeal in its design that makes me want to bring out my camera soon to seriously work on abstracts of my new Camry. Meanwhile, here are just a few done quickly this morning:
By the way, anyone want to buy my beloved Saturn for $1200? You might have to show me references because I don’t want to sell it to just anyone.
