My Cars

I'm participating in the Big Blog Challenge at scrapbook.com again this month. Today's prompt is to blog about your first car. I'm only on my third car, so that's a not-so-distant memory. My first car belonged to Troy- it was also his first car and when he moved on to a new car, he gave the old one to me. It was a '87 black Toyota Tercel with NO power steering and NO air conditioner; I'm sure you can only imagine what it was like during those hazy, hot, and humid, New Jersey summer days! I put up with that car for about a year or so and then bought a used '97 Honda Civic HX in 1999 right after I starting working at my current job. It was black, had 2 doors, a sunroof, CD player, but most importantly power and air! I kept this car for 8 years and then had to "break-up" with it this past January. That's what the LO is all about- it was actually published in July 2008 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Now, I've moved on to a 2008 Nissan Sentra. Unlike my other 2 cars, it's blue, my favorite color! It's big enough for me and my boys and pretty good on gas. It's not quite my dream car, but it'll do for now!
