Death of a Car


May 17, 2005 by Isaac Hovet

It is a sad day in my family.  The car that I have spoken so highly of may be dead.

The crank shaft is broke.  It would cost less to replace the car than to fix it.

Weird happenings.  Crank shafts just don’t break. 

Oh well…

There is a small glimmer of hope to replace the engine.  Maybe the great legacy of the 1988 Camry will live on…I hope it does.

    I know kind of how you feel. Our blue blazer was a part of us. Yeah is was a gas guzzler and broke down sometimes, but that loud engine…feeling like you were above people…was kind of fun. Well, we had to sell, to let go…but the good news is that the new home it found is just right up the street around the corner. So we see it, definitely hear it. It is kind of nice, but then we also kind of miss it more. Well I hope everything works out for you two. 🙂 (four) !

    I know that it will! We have been provided for too many times to doubt!

  3. Hi there Bridger,

    I imagine even loosing a beloved and old car can be painful.

    For me, when one door closes, another opens. This is one of those sappy slogans, but ever so true!

    A new beginning could be there for your family.

    You are right!

    Maybe God has something way neat up his sleeve (amazing how many metaphors we use).

    Like a hybrid…that would be cool and godly…

    Yes! A hybrid! I’d love to have one of those. Sorry to hear about your car. I have one with 230K miles on it and I’m sure it will be going soon.
