The "New" Car

Well, I did get a new car.  The only thing is that it is actually 24 years old!  We bought a 1984 Mercedes-Benz that has been converted to run on vegetable oil.  It has its original diesel tank with a separate tank in the trunk that houses the veggie oil.  We have a couple of local restaurants that have agreed to give us their used oil and all we do is filter it and pour it right in!  So at any point in time we could be driving around for free.  She's got a couple of miles on her but she is a great car, well, at least when the mechanic is done with her she will be!  We've been looking for a car like this for a while and are so thankful that the Lord blessed us with it.  I'd been driving the same car for 11 years and was ready for a change, we got a great deal on the Benz, and the Lord brought a very deserving buyer for the Oldsmobile.  A total answer to prayer!  We posted pictures so you can see her.  If you are coming from Vicki's site then you have to click on "home" to see our list of pictures.  Tell us what you think!
