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.
