Default Decomissioned

Today was the last day that I drove the Riviera on the road under my own ownership. The plates were taken off of it today and the Insurance expired today. She'* cold, salty, and all alone. As one last thing I changed her shoes (tires) to the summer treads, gave her a tuneup, and got her fluids all changed so she'* nice and fresh for the new owner. The tire shop lost one of my center caps so they're going to order me a new one. On the first day that it gets above freezing I'll wash it by hand one last time and then put a car cover on her and put her into storage until it sells. :( It'* almost as bad as putting a loved one to rest.





:(

--The End--

It'* a shame, but all good things must come to an end. That'* how I felt when I let the Bonnie go.

She had a good run, bring on the Olds

Tis better to love and "moved one" then to have never loved at all.

Enjoy the Aurora
