2013 Cadillac ATS: No Truck Needed
August 21, 2013
Lately, I've been giving serious thought to buying a used pickup, something like a Nissan Frontier. I enjoy driving trucks, and since I've blithely entered into a home renovation project, I'd have the ability to make a hardware store run whenever the mood strikes.
The problem is, of course, that with the house sucking up all available funds, a used truck doesn't really fit into the budget. Last night, I was driving our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS, and I decided to buy a new bathroom sink and cabinet that I'd researched online. If it doesn't fit in the Caddy, I told myself, I'll just arrange to pick it up later.
Boy, do I have a lot to learn about shopping at Ikea.
Although I bought what I consider a genuinely nice bathroom vanity, there's still significant assembly required, and with two separate boxes (plus a third for the faucet), it fit into the ATS's not very large trunk with minimal effort on my part. If only toilets were this compact.
