My silver 96 just completed another year since I thought it needed a new tranny, but turned out to be only the shifter falling through the floor and fixed with Window Weld about a year ago- and the last hurricane. It's just passed 125,000 and been my DD since 2002. Diana's death roughly marks the anniversary of my driving Festiva or Aspire- Got the first Festy that Fall of 97 and have driven nothing else since.

Had a bunch of stuff packed last weekend but had gone to bed at 8pm with Irma storming up the west side of Florida. At midnight I awoke to see the satellite showing that it had swept east and was coming straight up the peninsula toward me and Jacksonville. http://files.jcink.net/uploads/aspire/picard_90b54.png

Since Hurricanes make me nervous - I threw stuff in the car and then headed west on I 10 to I 75 and eventually had gotten up to Macon Ga by the next morning- 270 miles away and INLAND.

NO TRAFFIC and rather hairy out when I started- heavy wind and rain and several times past large tree debris in the right lane, Found more gas above Valdosta and knew I could get back then. The 21 year old Aspire performed admirably, and back again the next day. Luckily only tree stuff down in yard and no trees fallen on the house- the power was out a couple of days and my DSL a day or two more.

Anyway- Something Different! http://files.jcink.net/uploads/aspire/likemoticon.png

This is where I usually go to Starbucks several miles away, but fortunately on higher ground here.

As far as people asking about one of my cars, about once a month someone will stop me somewhere and tell me about how they used to own an Aspire or a festy - they usually ask to make sure it is an Aspire first - then tell me that it's one of the nicest ones they've ever seen - LOVE that part. I had one guy park next to me at Walmart, walk over to me and he says "WOW, every time I see an Aspire, it's a total pile (of ###### I assume) but this one, this one is really nice". I love it when people come up and talk to be about it.

I always end these conversations the same way - I tell them where I live or give them my phone number and say, "If you ever decide to get rid of yours, let me know, I'll probably be interested"

Oh, sure glad all is well at your side Harpon, I seen the news on TV and the damage done by Irna was terrible.
