ALL’s WELL that ……
END’s WELL …
Can you believe that I could do so much damage to my car in a 35 MPH zone? An old truck just stopped dead in front of me and I had no recourse but to hit it. It was three days before Christmas so you can imagine how thrilled I was with the whole scenario.
Of course I was the one who was ticketed since I was in the rear, and to add insult to injury I was not carrying Collision Insurance!! (Maybe not the smartest decision I’ve ever made but I’d gotten away with it for years so I guess I was ahead of the game.)
Anyway, the estimates to fix my car were about a thousand dollars more that I’d paid for it 8 months before so I called a salvage company and they bought it for $1,075 and hauled it away.
Now came the hard part…the search for an affordable car ! It seemed that every time we found something of interest it would be gone before we could get to it. There are many cars in the $6,000 and below range but one of my joys in life is driving and I just couldn’t get excited about anything I saw at that price.
I won’t bore you with the details but it was three weeks to the day before I found, and fell in love with, this 2001 Acura CL Coupe. It’s a year older than my other car and has 108,000 miles on it but those are small details in the overall picture. The wait is over and, “watch out world… I’m back on the road !!”
