Granddaughters New to Her Car

Many of you here know and or have meet my Granddaughter Courtney.
3 years ago when she was 16 we help her buy her first car. We told her we would pay $XX. amount & if she wanted a better car she would have to pay the difference. The car she wanted was $2500 over what we would pay but we bought it anyway & she made every payment till her part was payed off. Now she is about to start her second year in Collage & needs a better car. We told her we would pay for all of this one but she had to give her VW (first car) to her little sister. The VW does not look as good as when we bought it (a few fender benders) but it still runs great & will make a good first car for Cheyenne.

Courtney picked up her new to her 2008 Chevy Malibu this morning & is now out showing it off.
Cheyenne will get her New to Her first car in a few weeks after I fixed a few things on it.

It's great when your in a position to help your kids or grandkids and they reward you for your help. Good feeling.

There's another lesson for your grandkids, Steve: READ THE FINE PRINT. I doubt they thought THAT would be part of the deal.
