For a long time, I had really crummy cars (a late 70s Pinto that didn’t turn off when you turned it off… it kept backfiring and shuddering and belching for minutes afterwards. And Mitsubishi Galant I affectionately called “Old Smokey”. And a Nissan Sentra, old school, that was like driving around in a tuna can.
Over time, I got a nice car, a (used) Volvo sedan that I’d wanted for ages, and when I first drove it, I was in bliss: such a smooth ride! Such powerful pickup! Such safety! Such leather interiors!
Until a few years later, $200 of monthly repairs started kicking in, and then one day it rained particularly hard and I opened the driver’s side door to find the car floor submerged in four inches of water.
You know the rest of the story…. that fancy car I’d been so excited to possess, to own to have as a symbol of the mildest form of success? Well, it turned out to be just a big headache. Another thing to deal with. Something else to distract and worry about.
For too long, cars have been trap(pings) of success that drain our financial and spiritual bank accounts in a serious way.
Now, I just want something practical and reliable, so I can get where I’m going.
