Goodbye and Hello

It’s been a tough day … saying goodbye for good to a friend that has been on my side since almost fifteen years. Only compensated by the fact that I might have gained a new friend that might follow me as long as the old one …

Therefore this post is a tribute to my old Hyundai Lantra 1.5 GLS Airbag Edition as well as welcome to my new Hyundai i30 1.6 Comfort Edition.

During the last fifteen (mainly the last eight) years I have taken my old car from central Sweden to the Mediterranean Sea from France to Czech Republic, through at least nine european countries and drove about 150000 km, without ever having any brakedown (leaving the crashes aside) … even though the old friend lost a mirror I think four times, got crached in by others at least four times and suffered some other pain we don’t want to talk about … also it got its windows smashed in twice, got bottles thrown at it and the bonnet and the roof vandalized.

Man … it’s sad!

On the other hand there’s the new friend … shiny and still smelling of the factory …
We’ll see what it will bring …
