The ‘bu, 1997 – 2010.

I finally did it.  I’ve been thinking about it for a year or two.  I just haven’t been in a hurry to make the change.  I think the change will be good.  It’s time.

I picked up my new car last night.  I like it!  But I’m feeling a bit nostalgic about the ‘bu.  The ‘bu was the first new car that ever bought.  We’ve been through 132,000 miles together.  I’ve recorded every penny I’ve spent on her in a nice little notebook.  I’ve found wonderful mechanics that I enjoy seeing when I need an oil change or something more major. Me and the ‘bu – we have quite a history.  And now it will end.

The new car should be fun.  But I have no idea what kind of nickname I can give it.  What rhymes with Fusion?  Any thoughts on that one?  I’m sure I’ll have many new adventures with the new car.  But right now I have some mixed feelings.  I’m sad to see the ‘bu go, but excited for something new.

    Maybe you can go from the ‘bu to the Fu’. 🙂
