Shiro's Getting Older

At 10:43 PM last Sunday, about 4 miles North of exit 317 on Hwy 101N, Shiro turned 30,000 miles old.



I still find it hard to believe I've had him for almost a year and a half now. He's been an excellent car for me, challenging me in plenty of every-day driving situations and giving me opportunities to grow as a driver. He's saved my stupid ass a couple times, too, sometimes in ways that few other cars could.

I know there is plenty more he still has to show me, and I've yet to really test the limits of what he can do. One day soon, I think he and I will Autocross together, and I hope that in my fumble-fingered hands, his true capability will begin to shine through.

Every time we drive, I place my trust in him. I trust that with my skill and his capabilities, he will take us safely to our destination. Every time, he has done so faithfully.

Happy 30,000, Shiro. Here's to many more.

It's harder for me to believe that I remember when you GOT shiro!

XD time flies.

I have had my new car for almost 2 years in May and it is only at 18k so far... but in my defense, it's a lease. XD

hehehe, yes it does.

I was using him to commute for a while, and then going places fairly frequently on the weekends... so going through a tank or two of gas a week is not unusual for me. >.>

I'm mostly using the train now for work, though, so he's mostly used for road trips and other fun things at this point.

I know! I can't believe he's so old already. :x

I'll have to give him a nice wash and vacuum or something, in addition to his 30k checkup.

I've driven in cars with over 10 times that mileage, let's hear it for sturdy reliable Lincoln Towncars!


....*Headshot* Yeah, I know. We use our cars a lot more than you guys do. I've had days where a full tank of gas (360~400 miles) wouldn't get me through to the end of the day that I was using said car.
