Last night I started cleaning up the Maxima for a Nissan & Mitsubishi show and meet this Saturday. I’m certainly not showing it with the slightest bit of hope of winning, I’m doing it for nostalgia. To remind me of what used to be some of the best years of my life. While doing this it brought back a lot of memories from doing this very thing nearly every weekend during the summer for 3 years. I really miss those days, even though I’m still going to the events, it’s just not the same when you don’t have your own car there to show off and be proud of. Maybe just maybe sometime in the future I’ll have a car that I’m happy with enough to do it all over again.
People ask me why I still have the Maxima, I tell them I have an emotional bond with that car. I’m not sure I’d be in the same position in life without that car. I wouldn’t have met the people that I consider my best friends today without that car. I probably wouldn’t have the job that I have today without that car. It’s kind of crazy when you think about how one thing in your life can make such an impact. For me it was the Maxima.
