About “Lula”

I was tired of driving the P.O.S. Taurus that my folks gave me as a "Hand Me Down" (The dealer wouldn't give them squat for it in trade!), so I went out looking for something that fit my personality better but wouldn't drink too much gas. Turns out she looks just like a car driven by a character in one of my favorite series of mystery novels, so I named the car after her.

About “Liquid Silver”

This is my 3rd car. Its my first new car. I bought it new on July 7, 2008 at S&K Pontiac in Springfield, Illinois. I bought it as a college graduation gift to myself.
