Hello everyone. My name is Lindsey. I live on Oak Island in North Carolina (USA). My 2003 Ford Focus quite unexpectedly decided to take a roadtrip to that big parking lot in the sky (catastrophic internal engine trouble). It would have cost more to repair than the car was worth, so I decided it was time to let it go. I have owned/driven Hondas, Chevrolets, Fords, and Acuras over the years. I do not have any allegiance or loyalty to any one brand. My main concern is a reliable, reasonably priced vehicle which can get me from point A to point B. As luck would have it, a friend of a friend was trading up and decided to sell her silver 2002 VW Beetle Turbo. The test drive was successful and the price was fair, so I am the proud owner, literally overnight, of a Beetle.
