New Car’d

So I bought a new car. My last two cars now have both had transmissions die, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for this one. It’s a Hyundai Elantra 2005.

And as always, with the dawn of one age comes the death of another (and I tend to be sentimental about this kind of stuff, in case you haven’t read my blog much).

My beloved Saturn is officially gone (you might remember I hit 200,000 miles with it). I’ve owned a lot of cars so far in my young car owning life, but this one was officially my favorite thus far. We had a lot of good times together (such as getting stuck between two strip malls). I also had many, many long trips, and I may or may not secretly follow who ends up with it, just to see how many miles get put on it before it really bites the dust.

So I bid you adieu Saturn SW2. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

  1. oh, saturn! how i’ll miss you. you were extremely fun to drive home from sandusky. and i loved your cruise control decelerate feature.

    beautiful new car, morgan!

  2. Alas, farewell to the Saturn! Tom and I have an Elantra that we like (he’s had it for several years now–2003, I think–and it’s treating us well).

  3. This is a big day for you. Sorry to hear about the Saturn. It was nice of the tow-truck guy to drive it out of sight before he shot it.

  4. Congratulation Friend! I can not wait to cruise the mean streets of Chicago with you in your shiniest and most blue car to date. Totally sweet.
