Day 3140 – 250,000 Miles Later, And This “Guy” Still Has My Heart – or – Happy Valentine’s Day To My Car

I celebrated a very important event yesterday – my car hit a quarter of a million miles. I actually pulled over to the side of the highway to Facetime with Bret to celebrate the occasion. He’s been with Sam (my car) and I for a lot of the journey. I think we figured Bret joined us around 30,000 miles.

Sam has taken me across the country three times. He’s taken me up and down the east coast many times. He’s taken me to the beach.

He was there when I had my first conversations with Bret.

I’ve loved this car so so so much. He was brand new when I got him, with only about 100 miles under his belt.

He’s hit a few deer. He’s slid on some ice. He’s been in a few fender benders.

He’s held me while I cried. He’s held me while I laughed.

Many stories have been told through his amazing sound system.

I’ve given him mid-grade gas pretty much his whole life.

Sam, it’s been great hitting such a big milestone with you dude. Here’s hopin’ we make it another quarter million miles.

Day 2394 – My Rockstar Of A Car Is Approaching A BIG Birthday!

It’s probably not healthy, but I really love my car. His name is Sam, and he’s just been the best car. Though, my van was a really great vehicle too. But Sam has traveled well beyond what my van and I experienced – which was only about 2 years together. We’ve been together just about 12 years now. Sam has taken me across the country three times. He’s taken me to Lake Placid half a dozen time. He was our honeymoon car. He’s taken me to several rock festivals. My first date with Bret took place in Sam. He kept me safe during a hail storm/outskirts of a tornado.

Today, he crossed over the line of 240,000 miles. In less than 10,000 miles, this guy will be a quarter of a million miles old. I cannot believe it. I’ve said my goal is to make it to 250,000, but I think my little guy will make it a lot longer.

My friend said I should have a funeral for him when he finally kicks the bucket. Friends, I think I could cry my eyes out. I don’t even when to think about that yet! Oy. lol, Sam will live forever…..at least until I get my DeLorean…

What about you? Do you love your car?
