We are now the new owners of a 2007 Prius. The plan is to sell both Deanne's '01 Prizm and my beloved Miranda ('97 Plymouth Breeze with nearly 368,000 miles on it) by the end of the summer. That will consolidate us down to one passenger car getting 50 mgp and one light duty truck. I was thinking seriously about getting a heavier truck, but got talked out of it. The cost of having construction machines delivered to my holler a few times versus the cost of operating a 3/4 ton truck over many years convinced me I needed a better car, not a better truck.
