    Sold my car today!

    I sold my car today and I feel more liberated than fearful! I'm very excited to be putting the 15K toward my student loans. I still have a scooter so I'm car free but not totally oil independent . More time on the bike and scooter will be fun...I'm looking forward to it. It's strange how I couldn't wait to get my own car when I was younger, it was a right of passage...now I'm so excited to be free of the burden! It's strange how we evolve!

    Congratulations! I'm thinking of selling mine. It hasn't been driven in months and the turn signals no longer work. I don't care enough about it to bother finding out what's wrong with it and I don't want to drive something that doesn't have them (because unlike everyone else in this town, I signal)

    P.S. For the record, I've checked the bulbs, fuse, flasher, switch, and even tested some of the wiring and everything seems to be fine. It's just not worth the hassle to me to try to figure out something on a car.

    Congrats to you all!! I got rid of my evil, war causing, earth wrecking, gas powered VEHICLE last year and like some of you, it wasn't running well anyway. I pretty much stopped driving, and started riding full time long before. I ALWAYS hated trying to figure out problems with cars and being dependent on less than honest mechanics for every stupid thing that goes wrong with them! Not that I always look forward to my bike needing a little work/repair, but it has been a little bit "labor of love" fixing and self-satisfaction of a job well done afterward while being able to repair almost anything that my bikes might need.
