A New Era Begins
Last September I wrote that after decades of owning Volvos, we were considering leaving the fold and downsizing to a smaller car. After considering everything from Corollas to Insights, from hybrids to traditional engines, and even after Dave made a spreadsheet with a complicated algorithm that involved mileage, cost of the vehicle, cost of gas and the optimum number of Corgis (in our case, two), among other things, the one that kept coming to the top was the Mini, and specifically the Clubman.
And today was the day we marched into the dealer, put down our money and ordered one. Bright red, with a black roof. It should be here by August, so to celebrate what we're calling "The Great Ordering" we raised a glass of Christian's finest at HUB to our first new car ever. I say it's about time.
