A 21st Century Car for a 21st Century theologian

After many years of companionship and loyalty, I had to cut ties and all connections because she was pulling me down with her in destructive ways very fast. Yes, I had to move on from my first car, my 1992 Mercury Sable. We had gone as far together as we possibly could, because I wasn’t really willing to invest into the relationship the monetary demands and expectations that were growing each year. A flat tire here, a coolant tube there… no problem. But when the radiator went bad, I knew at that point, what was once a good thing had turned sour.

(This picture is not actually of my car… but this is what it looked like)

Moment in silence for my 92 Sable ………………………… Ok that’s enough! So you might be wondering what vehicle I am freestylin in now! It is the 2001 Hyundai Elantra. Yes it will hopefully be the perfect car for me… it has a pretty good reputation and it is an affordable car as well. Oh and did I mention that I talked the dealer down from $6,000 to $3,500. Yes it is possible. Freestyle (contrary to popular opinion) is about preparation. I looked up the true market value of the car for the Philly area, as well as other important information that could come in handy, so that when the moment came, I could flo back and forth with the dealer with confidence. It did take about 2 hours for the whole process, but it was definitely worth the time. The key to the negotiation is that you must be willing to walk away. If they know you must have the car, you will pay the must have the car price. Anyway, my car is nothing extravagant, it has some small minor nicks, dents, and scratches. However, with only 59,000 miles left on it, I believe it has several years to go. (Yet there are no guarantees!!!)

Freestyle technology…

I can stream live from my cell phone using software from qik.com. What practical use will I have for this… probably none (but ya never know), but for a cell phone addict like myself it is one piece of forbidden fruit I had to bite into. If I happen to be actually streaming (odds are slim) when you are on my page you will get a view of my life in freestyle, no editing, all done in the moment!!! Lucky for you, whatever I captured last will also be able to be watched by pressing play!
