A Saab Story

Once, I was run-over by a semi-truck.

That's not a joke. I purchased my first car - a sweet 4 door Saab 900 and, while waiting for a semi to make the turn out of a parking lot - he made the turn a little too sharp and his back tires rolled over the hood of my car. There was no room to back up with a line of cars behind me so I just pulled my knees into my chest and hoped for the best.

When I finally got some insurance $$ I found my next baby - a super cute 2 door Saab 900... Down deep I recognize that cars don't have feelings like we do [thank goodness] After a minor set-back, I left my Saab sitting for nearly TWO years before I, on Wednesday, finally watched her roll out of her parking spot for good. 

I sold her [to a good friend]. And it was on my list. #35 has been accomplished... Many more to tackle. 


  1. My first brand new car was a red, 2 door something....I can't remember what, but I loved it. When I married a year later, my new husband sold my car and bought a VW van!!! The van didn't last, but the husband did- for 37 years and counting!

  2. Well, at least you were able to sell your car to a good friend of yours. Who knows? That car may actually be the right car for him/her. So, how is your life going so far? Have you purchased a new car? I hope that you really get the ideal vehicle for you this time.

  3. That was a close call, wasn't it?! Glad you didn't get injured and that it was just your car that got hit. I guess you could really say it served its purpose well. I am sure your friend offered a reasonable price for your car. Any plans on buying a new one?
