Nuestro auto

Our "new" car is a 1992 Nissan Sunny. It's a little bigger than most of the cars here, so it feels roomy. It must use more gasoline, as well. We bought some gas yesterday--500 pesos worth of nafta. I think it will cost between $60 and $70 US to fill the tank.

Before buying the car, an escribana did a historia for it, which is something like a title search. (Escribano is translated as notary public, but they seem more like paralegals.) The license plate belongs to the car, so we didn't need to change that. We did get the libreta, which is like an ID card for the car and the matricula which is like the registration.

There are a lot of interesting cars on the streets here (see this post), but we didn't look at any antiques.

update:I was wrong about the gas costs-- I never put in more than 1000 pesos ($40 US) to fill the tank, even when gas prices increased.
