Twofocused no more?

Ok, our daughter moved back in with us. When we left Arkansas because I was recalled back into the military she stayed behind with family to finish HS. Now she has moved here to be with us and start Nursing School in the fall.

When we went to get her in Janurary she sold her car in Arkansas and has been driving her moms SE since. We went car shopping for her, she wanted a ZX3 or a Mustang. The insurance for either was way out of sight for a 19 year old. My insurance agent said under 25 = no 5spd, no 2 door, no sporty car.

So I kept the 03 ZX3, her mom is driving the 92 Contentinal, and Robin took over the payments on the 03 SE. By keeping the 3 cars we already had my insurance only went up $40 a month to add Robin to our policy.

This is working out great, Robin loves cars, and the SE is a great car to have.

Took me a while to figure out how to add Robin to the board since we share the same computer and email address, but she is posting under her name now Sweet Blonde.

So I still have 2 Foci in the house, but only one of them is mine .....It hasnt even left and I miss it already!!!!!!!!

I was expecting you to say that you wrecked your car or sold it or something. Atleast you'll know it's getting taken care of.

Sounds like a great thing, you may not be the owner of the SE, but at least you still have them both in the family.

Cheapest I can get (20 year old male in South Texas) is about $140 for liability only.

When I turn 21 in December it'll go down to like $80, and when I turn 25 liability will become $40 or $50.. go figure.
