The sun sets on an era

I just sold my 1993 Honda Accord as junk for a couple of benjamins. It was the first and only car I’ve ever owned. I bought it for $4800 in January 2004 with 105,000 miles on it. Since then, it’s gotten me through 73,000 miles, college and most of grad school.

I will always remember with fondness launching my 230-lb. frame into the tiny driver’s seat. Indeed, I will forever treasure the memory of many hours driven around the northeast with all my worldly possessions in the backseat, trunk, and strapped to the roof.

No more broken AC dial or passenger-side door handle. No more "Warning: in case of rapture the eschatological views of this driver will change" bumper sticker. No more right knee damage from driving too long in the equivalent of an airplane bathroom. No more jokes about me and my friends being "in one Accord."

Fare thee well, little Honda. You will be missed.
