Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Happy Birthday


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow is the 12th Birthday of my Fusion.

In the last 12 years she has been utterly reliable, never broken down, never failed to start, and never given less than 40 mpg across a tank.  OK, she's low mileage at 63k, but she's always lived outdoors, and has never let me down.  Not a spec of rust on the body either, although she has been waxoyled several times now.

She looks a quarter of her age and ticks like a Swiss watch, so I can't see any reason to sell her.  Hell, its not inconceivable that she'll spend the next 12 years with me as well.

All bought and paid for, all going well.  I chuckle at these folk who pay hundreds a month on a new car loan (or even worse, PCP) when comfortable, dependable motoring can be had so cheaply.

OK, she's not set my Y fronts ablaze with desire, the neighbours look down their noses at her, and she's never likely to get me laid, but if you're one of those old fashioned people who buy a car for transport (and not to impress people you don't like anyway) then this is the way to do it.

So happy Birthday Miss Zetec, and may you have many more like it.
