"They say the car we drive says a lot about us. I believe the way we drive says just as much or more." -Carol
Last year I wrote about my car in the 12 Days Of Thanksgiving 2017 Challenge. Whatever year it is, I can't pass up the opportunity to express my thankfulness for my vehicles.
When my husband was alive we usually had 4 - 5 cars at any given time. He was almost always working on a project. He was partial to the classic muscle cars, but his very first project was a 1930 Ford Model A.
When my husband passed we had 4 vehicles: The 2008 Ford Taurus that I still have, a 1989 Chevy custom van, a 1971 Buick Riviera and a 1973 Buick Centurion. It took me about 3 years before I could bring myself to sell the extra vehicles... the van, the Riviera, and the Centurion.
I managed very nicely with one vehicle until last winter when my neighbors decided to sell their van Toyota Sienna van. Neither could drive anymore, so they asked if I wanted to buy it. I was tempted but didn't really NEED another vehicle. I told them I would be willing to buy it, but they could definitely sell it for more money than what I would be willing to pay. Their daughter called me and said they really wanted to sell it to me and asked how much I would be willing to pay. I told her. Shortly after that, the daughter called back and said they really wanted to sell it to me even if it was for less money. They liked knowing I would take good care of it. I did buy it and love it. The real reason I bought it was because it accommodates our entire golf team (6 of us) and all of our clubs and other gear. We can travel to events together which is a lot of fun. I also like that it sits higher than a standard car. It is not AWD like my Taurus, so the car is the vehicle I'll use mostly in the wintertime.
I am so thankful for both of my vehicles! They are ready, willing and ready to go on my every whim.
