Since we had to sell Trek's cute little German car before we moved back to the states, he needed a new one here in Monterey. We survived off of one car for 3 weeks & I just couldn't take it anymore. I needed my van! So I gave him a budget of $2000.00 & told him to buy a little junker that will last us the 2 years we will be here. He found a cute little blue acura integra that fits him perfectly (& it's an automatic, so I can drive it when I need to as well). It's definitely VERY old, but it works. He's so cute with it. So far he's installed his own stereo, redone the wipers, & sewed up a hole in the drivers seat. He's made it a hobby/project. I'm glad he found something that brings him so much joy!
