Our first car...gone!


It happened on the dark and dreary evening of the 28th of August. This was not any ordinary evening, it was THE evening...the evening that Phil and I sold our first car. Sad as it was, it was time to retire the license plate number, 335-NDF. Our little car served us well (although it barely ran!). Phil put our car up for sale on Craigslist, and within 15 minutes he got 4 calls...2 hours later the car was sold!

On more than one occasion, our muffler fell off while we were driving, so we had to do something to keep it from dragging the ground! Gotta love bungie cords!

I remember the time that our car always had a small stash of Mountain Dew in the trunk : ) Back then we ate VERY healthy. We ate our "greens" about 3-6 times a day!

And then there was the time that we decorated our car for Katie and Adam's wedding. We filled it with balloons and wrote all over it with shaving cream.

We did a lot of crazy things with that car...

I remember the time when we packed 8 guys in this car! I am also pretty sure that we killed the suspension by doing that...

When we bought it, it had an engine knock and a broken door handle. When we sold it, it was running on 3 of its 4 cylinders, had 2 broken door handles, still had an engine knock, and no front suspension...but it still ran! To top it all off, the guy who bought it got saved!

Parting is such sweet sorrow! I am sure that we will get over it someday...ok, we're over it!
