Today I'm trading in my Alero. Even though it's basically a piece of crap (now that it's eight years old), I have to say it's a little bittersweet. Is that weird? To be a little sad about giving up an old car?
I've had this car for six years, so it's been with me all through college - from Iowa City to Cedar Rapids countless numbers of times. Then marriage, moving to Muscatine, then getting me from here to Iowa City for work for the last two years. It even got me to Bancroft in April for Nikki's wedding - a 10 hour trip!
168,000 miles and it's starting to fall apart, though. :) I'll miss you!
