So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Bye

It's a sad farewell. It's been 15 years and about 3 weeks. But our old Saturn finally inhaled for the last time and it's engine pumped one last time. It's been a good car. We've put over 200,000 miles on the car with less than $1,000 in repairs. It's old. It's falling apart. But the engine was doing pretty good until the engine block decided it had had enough and cracked.

See it sitting in the morning sun? It's sad and lonely. But soon it will retire to the auto old folks home and be able to chat and visit and have coffee all day long with other retired cars.

Goodbye old car! We'll miss you. You've been good to us over the years.

Oh, but wait, hold on... Say hello to our new car. We got a slightly used Ford Fusion to fill the void. Where would we be without two cars?

If your Saturn sees my old Chevy Lumina at the auto old folks home, tell it to say hi!

I like those! And they drive nice! I wanted one when we got the truck, but the truck was a wiser choice for us at the time! Enjoy the new car!
