Many of you know I drove a 1990 Mazda. This car was older than I am. I drove her for over 2 and 1/2 years and she finished with a grand total of 157,388. We have some wonderful memories....
One day I went to drive my car to school. I got in and noticed a few things were not quite right. For example: I did an awful job of parking, when I turned the car on the radio was off (I always leave it on), she was left in 3rd gear, and was lower on gas than I thought. Since these few things were slightly off, I asked my parents if they had driven my car, both of them didn't do it. Turns out my 14 year old brother decided to go for a drive to 7/11. Not surprising.
My car has been decorated for dances, swim meets...everything you can imagine!
This car has been so good to me.
1) I have made multiple road trips in this car, including through snow storms. She doesn't have cruise control so often times my leg would be pretty tired after long drives.
2) Once the radio went out so the kids in auto shop at Sierra Vista High fixed it for me.
3)This car is a stick shift...I kind of pride myself in being able to know how to drive one. The air conditioner was totally sweet! It did this rotating thing where it would change directions on its own. However, for whatever reason, it seemed to favor the passenger side.
4) This is the back. There is a hitch...not quite sure what this little car can tow....
5) Here is the driver window that has been stuck this way for over a year now. When it first broke my dad thought he could fix it...it's been this way ever since
6) This spoon me sticker is from a frozen yogurt place in Utah. I LOVE frozen yogurt. Whenever my dad drove my car he got lots of stares and texts from people who saw him. The "Itri" sticker my dad got for me after I did my first triathlon...which I won :)
7) This is the front of my car...cool huh?
This car has been such a blessing in my life! I have driven friends all over and she has smelled strongly of chlorine and burritos.
Every once in a while something would go wrong and she would break down. My dad ALWAYS came to the rescue.
I cried a little when she broke down for good.
This was the perfect first car!
Hopefully my new car will be the perfect second car!
This is my new (new to me) 2005 Hyundai with only 40,000 miles! And in perfect condition!
1) An arm rest. I didn't have any of those before. Cup holders. Didn't have those either. Automatic.
