Meet Champ

I'm not sure what it is with us and the color champagne, but it's kinda weird.

Here's the Corolla I bought just before Andrew and I got married.

Here's the Chevy Malibu that's Andrew's had since college.

Now, meet Champ (pronounced shamp, as in champagne).

Because the Malibu is actually the Skeen family college car, we needed to give it up to his sister, a freshman at UNLV. Andrew and I both work in opposite directions so we knew we would need to get another car to replace the Malibu. We started looking at trucks halfway through our car search process. We looked at a few Tacomas and some F-150s and Andrew really wanted a CNG (natural gas) truck, but we settled on the 2004 Dodge Dakota with a V-8 engine. It was well below blue book, had a back seat, and drove nice so we went for it. It has more miles than we would have liked (112,000), but hopefully we'll be able to upgrade to Andrew's CNG F-150 in the near future :). We are excited about Champ and feel lucky to have him.
