Farewell My Friend

I moved to the US in July 2006. In December of that year I purchased my first US car, a Lexus IS350. It was a dealer demo with 15,000 miles. Seven and a half years later we sold it. I had added less than 60k miles, mainly due to my walking commute and the acquisition of Sophia the electric Fiat in November.

It was sad to see the car go, despite last week’s repair bill, the first in our acquaintance. We got our asking price, and have a good offer on my wife’s car. I had no sadness on letting my very first car, a Ford Escort, go, but my first car here in the US was such a blast to drive that I shall miss it.

Our Memorial Day weekend will probably involve looking for a new car for my wife.
