Not too long ago I posted about how I still drove the same car that I have had since high school.
Our bond is just like the Liberty Mutual Insurance “Brad” commercial, except replace 4 years with 11, Brad with Gomez, and I did not total my car.
But really, nothing can replace Gomez. We legitimately have been through everything together.
I love my car so much that I am willing to share extremely embarrassing photos and memories of myself with Gomez through the years.
A Look Back
Driving to Friday night high school football games.
Jamming to burned CDs filled with super angsty teenage love songs.
Still driving to school even though I tore ligaments in my right ankle and was wearing a boot, which I removed to drive.
Piling as many people as there were seatbelts inside since I was one of the first to get my license.
Chauffeuring my brother & his friends around when he came home from college.
Trekking down to Bloomington, IN for 5 years worth of trips back and forth.
Filling Gomez to the brim with basically my entire life as I moved from house to house each year.
Transporting bikes and equipment to the Little 500 track.
Also transporting multiple Redsteppers (college dance team) to the football stadium.
Hauling furniture and vintage pieces I’d find at garage sales.
It breaks my heart to say that Gomez is up for sale (on Craigslist of course). I now drive a slightly newer Rav4, but it is definitely not the same.
We had a great run and I will never forget my first car.
Whoever buys you is going to get a car that is well-loved.
