Ode to the Malibu

I sold my car yesterday. Casey and I have been talking about it for awhile. "My" 1997 Malibu is working okay but needed: new brakes, new rotors, new tires, an oil change, and the gas tank filled up. I knew it would make more sense to sell it instead of doing the repairs and driving it back (since it would be at least $500 in fuel costs). We'll be fine with one car...but after 8 years it feels wierd to be without it. I had lots of good times in that car!

We posted the Malibu for sale on Craig's list expecting it to take a couple months to sell. We had lots of people interested right away and somebody paid our asking price (in cash) on the spot. Positives of selling car: cash to spend on bills/wedding, don't have to drive two vehicles for the 3 day drive back to MI, more space in the garage, and eventually I will get a new car!

that is great that you sold it so quickley! I know how u feel about getting rid of it though. I just got rid of my car that I've had since I was 16 and got a new one. Although its a little sad, the smell of new car makes things all better:-)
