A new car?

I can remember one day I was going to Melbourne with FJ in the Buick - just FJ and myself in the car having a normal conversation.  He said to me "what do you think the staff would say if I purchased a new car?" I said I don't see a problem, they would say the Buick is getting old and they would be happy for you.
