something (almost) new

Tomorrow I will drive to New Jersey and pick up my almost-new car. It is a 2003 Mazda Protege, like this one, only "metallic sand" color and without the sunroof. I am nervous and excited. It has all the modern conveniences, things my beloved Volvo lacks, like cupholders and a CD player. It is also one of the mostly highly-rated used cars in terms of reliability, which is the most important thing for me. I am sad to say goodbye to my Volvo, but she can no longer be depended on for trouble-free driving, and I have neither the nerves or the patience or the dollars to keep her in line.

Oh no. It's just not right: a metallic-sand modern car, instead of The Volvo. I'll miss pics of that car.
