I took my car of many years to a dealer today and traded it in. They gave me a healthy trade in. I would like to think the price paid meant that they too appreciated the quality of the car, but deep down I know it was a bribe to get me to buy one of their new cars.
No, my car wasn’t as flash as this hot Ford Falcon, but I was quite attached to it. Sob. I miss it already.
The good news is that I took out the stereo. It was a gory exercise and what was left (in the dash) wasn’t pretty. Once installed in the new car the stereo will be a reminder of the old car, call it a soul transplant.
