Back to consumerism

Two days ago my family got a new car, a "CD Silver" 2001 Ford Focus with the "wagon sport group" package, which includes a peppier 16-valve 2.0 litre engine, swanky mag wheels and wide tires, a tachometer, and a leather steering wheel. Although it is much the same (small) size as its Escort predecessor, the Euro-style Focus performs much better, and is more fun to drive. It still gets very good gas mileage, too.

Oddly, yesterday my parents decided to buy a new car as well.

So, for those who encourage people to spend, spend, spend to prop up the economy, my family seems to be doing our part.
