Shadow Shot Sunday - New used car

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives in a week where the family has a new addition...not what you might think though.It is really Allegra's new used car, a '99 Chevrolet Malibu sitting in the long autumnal shadows falling upon the Ansonia Uplands.



This shadowy beige conveyance replaces her 1996 Plymouth Neon that graced SSS2 and other posts. The absolutely nicest first generation Neon anywhere, it was totaled by an errant driver's left turn. Happily nobody was hurt and the other driver was at fault. The only casualty, alas, the shiny ruby Neon...
Nevertheless, the Malibu leaves excellent shadows under the more southerly sun. Owned and carefully driven by an older gentleman, it has only 74.000 miles (119,000 km) so it has a long and shadowy life - we hope without other drivers' faulty left turns...

Yikes! i am so glad that Allegra is OK-she must've been quite shook up from that event and perhaps sad to say goodbye to the ruby red Neon, but hello to Mr. Sleek Malibu!

The shadows and light highlight the beautiful shine on this car. Sad that the red Neon needs to be sent to the car pasture lands on high.

Used, perhaps, but new to her....and in possession of some nice shadows! Always fun to get a new "ride". :)

It's a beauty! Malibu is a good, safe car, too. Glad everyone was OK, but I'm sorry you lost your little ruby Neon.

Ruth Kelly said...

Nice shots. I have a new used car Malibu and love it.

One good thing with cars is that when you lose one, you are almost always bound to get another one. Lucky for Allegra. Not only was she safe, but she also got another shot for a new car! Prince@Lexus of Ann Arbor
