Going to start fresh with the new one. I may pull the alcoas and 33's off and sell them and put my current wheels and tires on it.

Well a lot of this wasn't planned. Most of it happened due to my dads death. Though I picked up the svt contour as a dd. The 95 was going to be a 4x4 swap project. Sold that to Josh(HozlvlII) to help him out since he sold the short bus. Traded the contour for the mazda because the contour is becoming a serious money pit. I got the new ranger to replace my other 04 with some of my life insurance money. It was my dream truck and it came by and I jumped on it. I also didn't plan on trading the mazda in. I was content with it, but my mom wanted something a bit bigger and auto that I could teach her how to drive again. It's been 10 years since she drove. Anyway to your question. I never planned on any of this.

For a car to re-learn driving on, I think it would make way more sense to get something USED! I mean sure you're under warranty, but sheesh. For me even crashing my 1996 Ranger was devastating, I still haven't fixed it all the way. Then again, I'm an 18 year old with a limited budget, eh..

She knows how to drive. She's just rusty. Its just as much my car too. I'll be driving it more then her. We wanted something with a warranty. thats why I had the mazda. I traded it in towards this car.
