RIP Bridget
Tav's car, Bridget, died yesterday afternoon. It would be too expensive to fix her and would make more sense for him to get a new car, but still, Tav loved her. She was only $400 when he bought her but she's lasted him 5 years and was the first car he's ever owned. She was a wonderful car, and definitely had a personality all her own.

We'll miss you, old girl.

"Bridget" 1982-2005

I'm sure she's in better place now. The great parking lot in the sky.

So sorry for the loss :(

My first car was a 1969 Oldsmobile 98 Two Door. Your First (car) love is always the greatest.

Aww, I’m sorry, I always get completely attached to inanimate objects too, I used to cry and cry when ever my family would sell a car. They become such a part of the family really.

Good cars go to heaven. Or something.

First cars are something special, and there'll never be another first car.

Mine was a '63 Valiant, a Detroit-area car, so because of all the crap they put on the roads to keep them clear in Winter, it was mostly rust held together by will and a prayer. But that slant-6 engine would last forever. I paid $175 for it. Shortly after that, my somene backed into my dad's car and broke the taillight lens. He did not appreciate me pointing out that it cost more to replace his tallight lens than I'd paid for my entire car.

I packed him to the gills when I left home, had adventures with him in New Mexico on the way to California, and he got me back and forth between California and Washington several times.

Then one day I left him parked overnight at my ladyfriend's apartment building, and he was towed, and I was so poor then that I couldn't afford the $40 to bail him out. I never saw him again. :(
