Please forgive the poor image quality, I took the shot with my cell phone. Having my 1988 integra pass 230,000 miles this week gives me mixed emotions. On one side, I’m happy that the car I bought when I was 16 years old has lasted as long as it has. Keeping in mind that the seat is tearing and the foam padding falling out, the air conditioner almost literally fell off of the car, the CD player doesn’t work at all besides the FM radio, and it burns off a quart of oil every two weeks. But the car just keeps on going! On the other side I’ve been thinking lately that it would be nice to have a car that has some of the amazing new technologies like cup holders, airbags, and a roof that doesn’t leak so the car won’t smell like the outside when you get on the inside. ;)
Since I aint got the cash for a new ride right now, I’ll have to stick with ‘The Blue Rocket’ while I can. She’s a sturdy steed who gets me from A to B (mainly to work and back, 30 miles a day). I guess if it works, it works eh?
