I was concerned about our tiny budget and what we could realistically get for that amount of money.
I went for two months, at least, not even thinking about getting a car because it caused me that much stress and turmoil.
Then, one day towards the end of May, I decided to put on my Big Girl Pants and get real.
After all the research I'd done, as well as the life experience I'd endured, I came to the conclusion that we would have to go with an older Buick or Ford Taurus to get a decent engine and body.
I also accepted the fact that this meant we would have to spend more on gas as a result.
I made my intention very specific.
"A black or gold, Ford Taurus. Safe. Comfortable. With a good engine, a good body and a good interior."
At this point, I had also spent three months getting rides from our student teacher, who had manifested a fully loaded BMW for only $5000.
So, I knew it was possible to get a good car for little money, it would just take some time.
The following day, Ken came home and told me that a coworker offered to sell him his Ford Taurus.
My first reaction was, "Wow! That was fast!"
When I asked Ken the color, the answer was, "Gold."
I was humbled and amazed, like I always am.
Now comes the funny part
It took us a while to get our money together.
The fella who was selling Ken the car drove it to work everyday, so I was happy with the care and condition. (It wasn't sitting in a barn like our last car had been.)
I also need to mention that I let Ken handle the whole thing. I'd been so heavily involved with acquiring our last three cars that decided Ken would be completely in charge this time.
Something about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results ;~D
The day came in early July when things finally fell into place and Ken brought the car home.
I was very curious and eager to see the car.
I went to the back door and looked in the garage.
A Ford Taurus is not what I saw.
I went outside and took a closer look.
It was a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Every time I asked Ken about the car, he said it was a Taurus.
He apologized. "They look so similar."
I started laughing.
Yes, we did follow through on purchasing the car during a Mercury Retrograde (which led to Ken putting June on the title instead of July, resulting in a $15 late fee), but more importantly I think my manifesting work had a lot to do with it.
Ken is very open to suggestion, especially where I'm concerned. We've been together a long time.
This is why I believe, every time he talked to me, he said it was a Ford Taurus.
But, hey, I'm not complaining.
This car has everything we were looking for, and then some.
I honestly can't believe it's ours.
What a blessing!
