Heard from the auto body shop my Grand Prix was taken to to repair the damage from the accident. On a scale of 1 to 10 the auto-guy rates the damage as a 5. He has parts on order and expects to have it done by the end of next week. Meanwhile I’ve picked up a rental car as it turns out trying to survive on one car isn’t working out as well as we’d like. After what the insurance is covering for it I’ll be paying roughly a dollar a day for the car for unlimited mileage in the state of Michigan.
The rental is a Ford Taurus and marks the first time I’ve ever driven a Ford vehicle. I was surprised at just how different from GM vehicles it feels with the first surprise being trying to figure which dinky lever on the steering column was the gear shift. It’s not a bad ride and it’s very quiet, but it’s still an ugly-ass car. But then, what do I know? I like the Aztek.
