Explored. I like that. And it does close that chapter. My wife and I both already had cars when we were married nearly 31 years ago, she had paid hers off, I was making payments. But a free, no-strings vehicle would have been very helpful. What I hadn't mentioned, and re-read the thread to see, the boy didn't marry the original girl, she flaked and ran away. But a year later, he married another girl. Now he is graduated and working in his field ( a rarity for college grads these days!), they bought a car, returning my Neon to me, and are looking at a vehicle when they pay the car off next year to replace the STILL running and driving fine Ranger aka, Explorer in Disguise. After nearly 40,000 miles, that transmission is still shifting good, though it needs to warm up a bit when really cold now.
When it comes to Heroes, RENEGADES are mine!
