We took possession of the new car last night.  1996 Ford Escort LXE with slightly less than 30,000 miles on it.  Evan is totally excited even though you couldn't tell it from looking at him.  You have to listen to what he says and how he says it. 

This is definitely a rite of passage.  Everybody remembers their first car.  But not everybody has the experience of walking out to the driveway to play with the music system to find it gone when his mom drove it to the relatives to show it to them.
