Going to look for a new car today with my dad... it is time. Edi is dying, and as sad as it is to admit it... he is. He has been a good car, both to my grandparents and myself. Just a couple of weeks ago he passed the 100,000 mile mark - little trouper. The paint is peeling, the gas pedal sometimes sticks so when I am wanting to take a left hand turn, he sometimes hesitates in the actually get-up-and-go, and with on-soming traffic, it is like playing "chicken". Then when he is really tired sometimes he doesn't start at all... not a click or a engine rev or anything. But I love him, and the air conditioning and heater are phenominal... the seats are comfortable. I will miss him dearly when I trade him in.
I love naming things and Edi's full name is Edinburgh Reginald Von Dodge... very proper... he's ghetto, but a name gives him distinction. It also was a reminder that I will one day go to Europe and actually stay in Edinburgh for a time. What a great car.
Some pictures of when I first got him...
I was just starting my freshman year in college... 2 1/2 years ago.
Look mom, no hands!!
*** the tag at the top of the windshield allows my car onto Luke Air Force base... Awesome! Thanks Papaw!
