New Truck!

I got a new truck Thursday night! I wasn't unhappy with my old truck, but Mrs. Mellow took a phone call from the local dealer where they told her about all their current incentives. She told me about it, and with the deals that the local dealership was offering last week, we decided to look into stepping up. At the end of the day, we gave them my six-year old truck, wrote a check for about a third of the sticker price of a new truck, and drove away with a brand-new 2003 Chevy S-10. She's similar to my old one, but with updates you might expect in six years -- the third door for the extended cab is now standard, the radio has a CD player, etc. She's red, well burgundy, and very comfortable and fun to drive. I think I'm going to be happy with her for years to come.

There are two things that I need to do soon. The first is get a bedliner. Before just going out and getting a bedliner like I had in my last truck, I'm considering getting one of those spray-on bedliners, like Rhino Linings. If anyone has any experience with spray-on linings, I'd love to hear about it. So far, I haven't heard anything bad about them. They're a bit more expensive than a regular bedliner, but look like they may be worth it.

The second thing I need to do is name my truck! Like I did when I named Rhonda (my motorcycle), I'm going to turn to my faithful blog readers for inspiration. I have established a bit of a naming pattern with my trucks so far and will tend to lean towards names that follow the pattern, but I'm open to other names as well. My trucks are female, so a female name is in order. I tend to gravitate towards names that are concatenations of two names, the second ending in "Ann" or "Anne." For example, my previous truck was named "Lorianne." Anyway, keep the pattern in mind, but don't let it constrain you.

Poll #165907 Truck!

Name drmellow's truck

I hope to name my truck by the end of next week, maybe sooner.
