Looking For the Right Match

ford-ranger.jpgThere is nothing like old pickup trucks in my books when it comes to vehicles. They have so much character, can be driven in all weather conditions, and the visibility is far superior. Some of the trucks I have owned definitely won't bring a Rolls Royce or a lamborghini cars to mind, that's for sure! Because some of my favorites have been gmc and chevy trucks, I am very inclined to look at the new models they have. The Ford Ranger is closest to the size of my old truck.

I am currently in the market for a vehicle, and I am really waffling and wavering with all the choices that are out there. Even though my heart is always with old trucks, I have waffled and wavered. I was thinking about a more economical car, like a kia, but must admit that my head was definitely turned by the 2010 chevy camaro specs. In fact, at the International Auto Show I saw the "Camaro Black" concept car. The 2010 model looks very much like it.

I have really been intrigued by the new smart car. They are such a unique design and illicit a lot of nostalgia in me as they remind me a little bit like the BMW Isetta. It was in the "microcar" class, meaning that it seated one to three people. I have passed a dealer every day that has them, and the more i look at them, the more they remind me of a little roller skate. I am not quite sure if that would be safe enough for me in the winter time. If I had disposable income to have a little car on the side just for fun, I would consider it.

Someone showed me some Nissan Sentra pictures. Unless I buy a used car that is a few years old, I am going to buy American. I was told that Nissan cars are made here, unlike the Hyundai Genesis which is a Korean import. I saw that the Titan is made in Mississippi and Sentra is assembled in Mexico. I don't know if that will sway me, as the company may employ Americans, the profits go overseas. I think I may stick with something like the Ford Focus instead.

I am not sure what I will decide. I have another two weeks to consider it, and will let you know.
