Too. Many. Wagons.

Something's gotta go. I've been planning on selling the red one for a year - nobody uses it. So this summer is it. I think I'll sell the blue one this summer. I'm tired of Audis, and the packaging to get to any system to replace it is so frustrating. So we'll keep Betty the Black Volvo and manage with one commuter / trip car and hope she takes care of us for a few years.

Then when our daughters in law show up with their Soobies it looks like a ridiculous used car lot.

ohh, I'm thinking 1500 or 1000. As-is, with some flaws and wear and tear. 160k, couple of dings. Had it almost 20 years. I thought about donating it to our PBS station. I'm putting in some effort to whip it into shape.
