The Car, or lack thereof

I purchased my car in June of 2005 as a new start. My wife had left me, and the car I had been driving was covered in memories, both good and bad, that I wanted to leave behind. I traded that car in and got the first car I was truly comfortable in, a Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS. She had a sleek black exterior and a matching interior, and she was a smooth, fast ride that I loved.

As of yesterday at 2:45 PM, I no longer have a car. She was a good ride, taking me from corner to corner of the lower 48 states in style. I never had any serious issues with her, and I was happy to have had her for as long as I did.

Selling my car is a significant step for me. It means I can’t just go where I want, when I want anymore. I’ll need to plan my trips more carefully, either using public transit or getting rides from friends.

Some might wonder why I would sell a car I loved so much. Well, I did love her, but I didn’t love the payments. She cost me an average of $600 a month, not including gas.

Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to get in better shape! More bike riding for me!


I’ve just submitted the payoff on my car! I should have the title in hand to sign over to the new owner by next week!!!

Another Update!

The purchaser of my vehicle is coming by to pick up the title! This is the last step in transferring the vehicle to someone else. After today, I will no longer have a vehicle in my name!
