Did the insurance buy you a new car yet?

Get one of these and have it converted to electric.  It should be able to handle your driveway.

https://www.ironplanet.com/Humvees




We got the call last Friday that the car is officially gone.  Payout is just under $8k.  Not bad considering we bought that car in 2014 for $13,500 I think.  We are borrowing our friends BMW Z4 for now and trying to figure out what we want.  We are pretty sure we will end up getting two vehicles.  Some type of SUV-ish thing for road trips with the dogs, and something fun for her to daily.  The Z4 is surprisingly fun - especially since it is the base engine, 3.0 inline 6.  That motor really runs.  Somehow, it gets up and down the driveway.  Can't go straight on, but slight angle gets the nose up quick enough.  approach angles, short nose over tire and zero rear overhang all seem to work together. 

Anyone selling anything interesting?

I really like how the Z4 performs.  I was ready to buy one instead of the Sol when my wife stepped into the conversation.  She said "that long front end looks funny" and then "Look at this car (sol) honey, I really like this one".  Sold

Well, it has happened.

Background: our beloved fx35 was totaled by an idiot on the freeway. Mrs. GJ was driving and we got rear ended by a Chevy Tahoe. Both cars totaled. We are fine.


That was March 5.

We finally bought another vehicle. We move slow 🤪


Hints:

2011
Roughly 400 hp
AWD
4+ doors
Purple



I?ll buy a beer for whomever guesses correct. Next time I see you in person. I?m good for it- even if it?s 10 years from now.

Country or continent of origin?

Best guess at the moment either that or this is now a naming contest.
