I have a brand spankin' new hulkin' truck.  I bought the F150 crew cab p/u.  I love it.  It has so much technology that I signed up for a class to learn how it all works.  I've been playing with the touch screen and today I did an awful lot of backig up and that rear camera is the coolest thing I have ever seen.  I have GPS, Sync, a moon roof, the coolest step for the rear gate, running boards, and I am able to tow with it.  It is so nice to get into a vehicle that doesn't squeal down the road and doesn't try to die everytime I stop.  I don't have to call upon the universe to get me there and back.  I am now taking that time to say a little thank you instead. 

My seats are air-conditioned and heated.  She's a beautiful truck.  I love my new truck.

That is awesome news, congrats! I would love heated seats especially in the winter. I agree the best invention is the back up camera, I think it should be on all vehicles, with an alarm if something is back there. My mini van has sensors but no camera, but I do love the sensors.

Awesome that they have classes on learning your cars now a days, we helped our son by a Ford Focus and it has a ton of bells and whistles.

You forgot to tell us what color it is???

That's because I don't know what color it is exactly.  When the sun is shining it is brown with a gold trim, when the sun isn't shining it appears black with gold trim.  The sales guy told me the name of it but I forgot. 

My back up camera also has an alarm that alerts when I get close to something.  I even have a beep to let others know I am backing up.  YES!!!! 

I had the old car for 12 years.  It is so nice to smell new car. 

I think it is kind of sad that I need a class to learn how to use the bells and whistles in my new vehicle.  I have figured out how to program the gps.  AND I made a call through the blue tooth today.  That was kind of freaky though.  I told the car the first name only of the person I wanted to call and it repeated the full name of the person I wanted to call. 

I'm just happy the settlement money finally came in and in time for all the good deals.  I've nearly done all my Christmas Shopping.   I love cyber monday.

Congrats on the new truck. Very cool about the color changing...was it meant to be like that? I have seen cars that go through a rainbow of colors and it is some tricky paint they have now.

Wow, I am still starting on my shopping, I am so far behind this year. Glad for the internet so I don't have to deal with lines and cranky sales people.

Welcome Mocyn!

Yes, it is meant to do that.  It is some sort of fancy paint that does the color change.   I also have a cat that looks black inside and brown in the sun.  LOL!   It must be me. 

I think I am done with the Christmas shopping.  Just placed my third Think Geek order.  Oh, wait, I need one more stocking stuffer for my mother.

I am.  I am really enjoying it.  I have almost learned to park it in the lines.
