We did it! We did it!!

No not that! Get your mind out of the gutter.  We paid of my van.  Yes it is a 1999 Dodge Caravan with a few dents and a crack in the windshield, but it is all mine.  Yay!!!  Hello extra $336 a month, nice to meet you.  You will be meeting my savings account.  We still had another year on our contract but we got the money together and now have the title.  I still need to go to the DMV and get it changed over but I have the title in my hands.  I haven't had the title to a car since 1997.  Yeah, you read right 14 years ago.  I had by far my favorite car. A 1970 Chevrolet Nova, it was my baby and I loved it. I spent a lot of time and money on that car.  I eventually gave it to my brother, because with a baby on the way I didn't have money to put into a car that needed a new engine.  Not to mention it didn't always start when you wanted it to.  It was temperamental like me. lol  My husband has had the title to a car in his name about 3 years ago but the transmission went out so it was done for.  Especially when it only Kelly Blue Booked for $300.  But now I have a van that is paid for and works well.  OK works well most of the time.  Hey its 12 years old it won't be perfect but I don't expect it to.  I know a few people who would run right out and trade it for a newer model but that makes no sense to me.  Yes it would be newer and everything would work right, but then comes more payments.  So now I plan to run this van  or "coupie" as Iris used to call it until it dies.  Of course my oldest want to do things like put in a dvd player and all this cool stuff.  Not me it runs and stops that is all I need.
