In driving home today, I had a man in a police uniform pull up next to me at a stoplight, roll down the window of his car, and motion for me to do the same. Because of his friendly demeanor I wasn't particularly worried but was slightly surprised when he asked me if I wanted to sell my 13-year old Jeep that I had bought less than a week ago. I was only slightly surprised because a friend of mine who has a similar vehicle told me that happens to him all the time. It seems that the boxy style of Jeep that they used to make is pretty popular with the locals. Apparently, they like to trick them out similar to this photograph. Keep in mind that my Jeep is a standard-looking vehicle and looks nothing like this one. Hopefully this means that I'll be able to get some money for it when I eventually leave; something I wasn't counting on before.
