A Dramatic Death

I know it feels like maybe this could be a halloween post..
Or really something serious uh.
But it is actually the changes in life that happen
When you don't want them too.

My little car,
My first brand new car that had
26 miles on it when I drove it off the lot. 
Has gone to car heaven

Look at all her miles

I had mixed feelings having my last picture with her
I will surely miss her, as our story is long
She is a bit over 11 years old

I have had many hatch backs as
I think back upon all my cars
And her hatchback allowed me to haul
Dressers, Mulch and stepping stones,
And a ceramic kiln all the way from Iowa!!
She has moved so much stuff on her travels
She was my little truck

This Scratch is from picking up my daughter where
I had to pull between two trees.
It didn't turn out so well on the backing up
She has many little dents and dings
It all adds to her personality
They tell her life story
She was one day old when she got her first
Little mar spot.
Remember that my daughter?  hehehe!

Her timing chain locked up on a busy street
And knocked the tranmission out, sending a pool
Of red fluids flowing down the street
It looked like all her lifes blood had run out
I was devestated
I didn't know what to do,
Poor tow truck driver heard it all..
He was great with me.

I let her meet and talk to her replacement car
A new girl, in a new color
Black is a color I have never owned

She is a 2012 with 286 miles on her
She had to come to me from Texarkana, TX

A fancy new dash design, a working stereo,
Jacks for my Ipod..
Cruise control for the first time in my life
She has all the new upgrades

And yes she is a hatch back too
Only this time a 4 door hatch back

She is a bit longer in length
But I bet I am going to love the back doors
My grandkids and friends can ride in this one

She will be my new addition
And her first mar come before she
Even left the lot, from me this time
I am ready for a road trip with her
See how she rides, see how much she can
She is my new little truck
I will miss
My 2000 Hyundai Accent
But look forward to
My 2012 Hyundai Accent

Please join in me in my farewell
To my very first NEW car
I acutally cried when I left her behind

Happy Travels My freinds

Congrats to you! You will love that cruise control, and I'm a believer in it helping to get better gas mileage.

Oh DeeDee... we do get so attached to our cars and yours has served you well.... you will love the additions with new car... happy happy driving...

Your new car is great! I'm actually looking at a "newer" one. Our Taurus is 6 years old and we never like keeping them longer then that, but don't like buying brand new ones either. Good luck with your new car!

Awww DeeDee always sad to say goodbye to our cars! I had a Ford Focus wagon that I LOVED....station wagon but really sport looking. So kid plowed into the rear end. I remember going to the lot to clean her out and it was making a long steady "eeeeee" noise, went to take the keys out only to realize there were no keys in ignition. Oh my goodness, I said to my mom it's like she flatlined!!! LOL

With that said....WOW I LOVE LOVE LOVE that new one!!!!!

That's so sweet! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really appreciate that. It's a nice way to look at things and is a bit more freeing that way. I hope your new car is as wonderful as your other!!

you know those car color describing owner's personality summaries? guess what they say about owners of black cars? although red cars have a bad rap, it's black car owners who are more rebellious in their driving, & life in general. you don't believe in that stuff do you? not telling what color my car is, you already know.
