Well okay then, the gas milage isn't that much worse than what you are already looking at, and the payment is going to be much lower, so you are probably actually going to be better than even on this one. So what you need to do is find one. Sauce it out, you know white paint, mags, bling etc. ( you are still saving money at this point ) Don't tell the girl until it's all done. Bring it home leave it in the driveway with a big red bow across the hood and then show it to her. SURPRISE! When she is totally speechless tell her this verbatim: "Do you like it? It's a poor man's Hummer, I know, but when it comes to cargo space babydoll, this one really delivers like no other." Then proceed to take her on a "joyride", if you can hear her above the sound of this engine ( in happy tones of course ), well then, give her your platinum card and let her get her Escalade or whatever. If not, well...it may be a free-heeler with a fixed lab that drives something more mundane, like a Jetta or an outback that will truly appreciate the finer things in life. Just remember, you won't know if you don't go. Get er done RR!
