New Wheels III: The Saga Continues...

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while, you might remember a couple of my posts entitled "New Wheels". As a little recap, the first post in this series was back in May of '09 when I bought this:

You can read that post back in the archives here: 
 The second edition in the series was when I purchased my pickup:

 The rest of that post is here:

 This post continues in that tradition, showing off the new wheels on the farm. There is one difference though; this time the "New Wheels" aren't mine, they are Dad and Mom's. Let me back up and tell you a bit of a story:
     "Once upon a time, in the sleepy little village of Kintyre, there lived a quiet little family..."

Well, maybe not that kind of a story, but it is a story none the less:  For quite some time there has been talk around here of the need for another vehicle, since mother's business has been thriving in Bismarck, Cora is working at the nursing home, and the price of gas just keeps going up...   So when Dad was going to take a load of screanings into town with the old truck yesterday, and Mom HAD to go along, I got the sneeking suspision that something was in the works -- so I was only half surprised when they drove in with this:

Correction: I was not at all surprised when they drove in with the "White Truck," as that is what they took to town. The one I was surprised about was this one:

 It is a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica, decked out with most of the features you could want, including a DVD player, sunroof, heated leather seats, satallite radio... WOW! That is the nicest (and newest) vehicle we have ever owned! Here are a couple more pictures:

I am sure we will all enjoy it very much, especially Mom, who will be driving it the most... :-) Now the big question is what should we call it? We usually name our vehicles, as it makes it easier to know what people are refering to. Although the Pacifica is technically a Crossover, it actually looks a lot like our minivan, so we are going to have to come up with something to call her by. Have any suggestions?
