Less trips to the mechanic (probably), more loan payments (definitely)

After about 8 days of car shopping, I ended up in an '03 Chevy Cavalier. Sure, I'll miss the power everything from the Supra (what of it still worked, anyway), but not having to use a wire to start it! I'll definitely miss the zero-dollar-a-month payments from the LeBaron and Supra, but I'll be praying that lower maintenance bills make up for that.

Since I'm such a statistics-nut, here's a few off the top of my head:

Car #3...
...is by far the newest one (4 years old || runner up: LeBaron at 11 years)
...has by far the fewest miles (26K || runner up: the LeBaron again at 119K)
...is my first car that isn't dark red
...is my first GM car (hope that doesn't end up being a bad thing)
...is my first car with working A/C
...was the first to not need new parts before I could safely drive it    ;-)
...is my first financed car (why clutter the file cabinet with car titles when I could have payment stubs?)
...was the first car I got outside of New York
...is my first car without battery and oil pressure gagues (the temp gague is more fun to watch, anyway)
...has the smallest engine yet (2.2 liter || runner up: LeBaron with a 2.5)
...is the first car that didn't come with a Kenwood stereo head-unit (gonna have to fix that)

and, last but not least, Car #3...
...is the first car with a cupholder that takes those HUGE Taco Bell cups!!! (gonna get some mileage out of that)
