Hey there, Blue Nickelites, Meet Lois….Lois is the newest addition to our family….and actually came into the fold back in July after my Escort Wagon died (un-named because nothing ever came up, and I never really liked that car anyway…it broke down a lot the first couple years, then was fine for many, many more….finally died BIG time this summer at 271, ooo miles….so a decent car to be sure….but no name….)
Behind Lois is “El Crusto” as my son calls the van he drives to school (Once he wanted to spray paint that on the side of the van, but we pretty much think that is asking for trouble in many forms)....Linda’s van isn’t really named either, other than the “Good Van”....
We got Lois from a local pastor who put a whole 550 miles a month on Lois. Not much…..but Lois’s original owner, also a Lois, only put 26K or so on her from 1989 to 2006 when she sold our Lois to Pastor Ed…...and Lois One, the original owner, wrote down EVERYTHING in this little notebook, which Pastor Ed gave to me, much to my delight.
Lois is a 1989 Cutless Ciera that had only 67K on her even though she was 22+ years old. Her insides were mint condition, just a little bit of wear. She’s already a bit unhappy with me, as I am not quite as tidy as her previous owners.
I am more than happy to own a car that was owned by the “little old lady who barely drove her, but took excellent care of her”.....Lois and I have the best conversations with God as we drive along….the best…..
Does your car have a name? Please share!!
