Goodbye to the old car

After a light January snow storm.

After a light January snow storm.

I think the last car we bought new was our 1997 Saturn. Only cost about 12 grand. It ran well for a long time, but then started giving us a lot of trouble during the last few years. That meant it sat idle more than it ran. Meanwhile, keeping the insurance and the license plate up to date was like burning money.

So, we finally sold it today to a guy who knows a lot more about car engines than I do. I hope he can keep it running and get some good out of it.

Goodbye to the stick shift car (a five speed) which I still prefer to automatic transmission. Probably because I learned to drive on a stick shift.

After they drove it away, I had a swig of moonshine to help say goodbye.
