Jason got home from his 2 day drive from Ohio with Ellen's (new) car and needless to say, she was VERY excited to see it! She couldnt wait to get in it and get it started even though she had no idea how since it is a stick shift, but just the idea of having her own car was cause for some squealing and screaming from excitement! Ellen is now the proud and excited owner of a 2000 Nissan Maxima with power everything including heated seats and a sun roof!
Jason has a friend who has a girlfriend who was selling this Maxima since she bought another car and since he knew Jason was going to be looking for a car for Ellen soon, he offered it to him at a really good price. The only bad thing was that this friend lives in Ohio, so Jason bought a one way plane ticket to Ohio, flew there - met the guy, made the transaction, stayed the night visiting old friends and then started his 2 day trek back to Texas!
We are also really proud of Ellen! Ever since she got her job at subway, she has saved EVERY penny so she could afford to buy a car. We told her whatever car she got, she would have to pay half and we would pay the other half but she is in charge of her gas, insurance, and all expenses incurred with owning a car! She has really worked hard and could have paid for the car all by herself, but now she has enough saved up for any car emergencies and everything I mentioned before. Now, she only has tro finish her driving modules and get her drivers license!
Yeah, I know - she got the car before the license, but it was too good of a deal to pass up!
