Yesterday, the deed was done and my betrayal was exposed. Me and my mx3 had our last ride together. I pulled into her new driveway and almost backed out and called the whole thing off, but i knew the time had come. I've owned that car for over 7 years and knew everything about it. I autocrossed it for 3 years even while being my daily driver. Never once did she let me down or leave me stranded. It's always been a running joke with the wife that the "mistress" had always got me out of more trouble than i could get into, and in some ways that was true. I'll admit that I'm a crazy driver and the mistress has gotten me out of bad situations more than i could ever count. Its funny how they become a part of you when you're a car guy. Hopefully she'll keep on truckin for a very long time. Is it normal to be sad?
I will diesel you!

Sounds like you had some great times with that car, I hope your next one is just as much fun

I know the feeling Low.... I felt the same way when we traded my 2000 Celica in on our new Outback... after 13 years, the time had come, but it still hurt... 13 years is a long time to own a car. I still miss her every day, nut the 06 Forester I am driving now is a really good car. It's just not my Celica!
