Saying goodbye to Miss Vibe
This was the first car I bought with my own credit, my own salary and no co-signer. Miss Vibe willingly hauled groceries, boxes to thrift stores, loads to and from storage, and even handled the big boxes that shouldn't have fit.
We logged a lot of road time to Las Vegas for all those Iowa trips to see my dad and Phoenix trips to see my daughter. I could always depend on Miss Vibe to get me safely to my destination, and she didn't let me down. Together we got through job changes, the loss of parents and my daughter's stroke. Miss Vibe didn't even complain about my haphazard maintenance or the lack of frequent bathing.
Sadly, Miss Vibe's paint was starting to peel, and I knew that she would soon need more work and money to keep her running well. Hopefully she will find a happy home and get the attention she deserves.
Next week we'll be off to Tucson, then a quick trip to Las Vegas, followed closely by Los Angeles. Wish us luck!
