Dan is back in the saddle again

Plainfield Today readers were more than helpful when I posted that I would need to exchange stick shift Toyota Echo for an automatic a few weeks ago. Folks came forward with everything from offers of vehicles to tips on where to shop locally for a good used car.

Thanks to reader Craig, Dan is now saddled up with a ruby red Mercury sedan, and feels just as happy as Gene Autry loping along with his horse, Champion.

Craig had brought the car from Ohio to Plainfield to use as a 'station car' between his house and Netherwood Station, where he commuted into the city daily, and managed to put only 7,000 miles on it in two years.

With his job demanding more time, he relocated back to NYC and no longer needed the car.

It is a peppy V6, fully equipped (with even power mirrors?!), and in short what used to be called a 'creampuff'.

Needless to say, I'm glad to be back on the road.

Tomorrow you will see some evidence of that with the return of 'Hidden Plainfield'.
