New car, caviar, four-star day dream

Our long national nightmare is over.

Well, mine is anyway. I bought a new ride today.

It's an '07 VW Jetta (keepin' it real!) and it's the Wolfsburg Edition which basically means it's got a few more bells and whistles. And for the first time in my life, power windows and doors! Pretty sad, right? And it's got one of those remote key thingys. And a slot in the door that holds a full sized water bottle. And a little thing in the trunk that lets you hang grocery bags. It even has heated seats. And it has a glove box, unlike my '96 (I don't know either, but for whatever reason it didn't have one). And it's not red. And it smells heavenly. It's like I've joined the current century. I did stick with my beloved manual transmission, however. 'Cause I'm not always gonna live in A-t-l-a-n-t-----------------a. (that was a typographic representation of traffic here.)

(note the simpicity of the dash—no funny bidness, just what you need laid out intuitively)

Most importantly, it is dope. Pardon my French, but I'd go so far as to say it is dope as fuck.

You'll all be glad to know the 2.5-liter, 150-hp, 5-cylinder engine runs on a timing chain, not a timing belt. In short, we won't have to worry about that little breakage problem no mo.

And Mom, it's safe. It's got 10 airbags. So when me and my hip but not too hip friends are discussing some pop culture topic and get run over by an SUV we might be able to get out and say "holy.....

That's it. I'm off to try to make use of the last 6 days of my 32nd year.
