The end of Scarlett, and the beginning of Alice

Well it has been one week as of this afternoon. Last Thursday I traded in Scarlett for a 2006 Jeep Commander 4×4 Limited. Scarlett was at the point where it would cost more to repair all of the stuff that was wrong with it then what it was worth, so it was just one of those things where it needed to be done. Granted I was close to having it paid off, but at the same time, I would be dumping money into a car that, with its past history, would have something else break on it right after the repairs were made. The straw that made the turn is that it did not pass emissions last Monday, and I couldn’t drive around on expired plates.

I have named the new jeep Alice, from Resident Evil, as this will end up being my zombie vehicle. It has the proper engine for such a need as it is a 5.7 V8 HEMI. It is a 4×4, and after a year or so should have a proper brush/zombie guard in the front of it and possibly tires more suited to running over obstacles. She is Khaki pearlcoat and is in great condition. She is also a certified pre-owned jeep which comes with extra warranties as I do not want to run into the hell I did with Scarlett.

I haven’t had a chance to take some good pictures of her yet, but here is one that I took with my phone of the outside, and of the engine compartment, which happens to be one of the cleanest engine compartments that I have seen.
