The Story of the Old Blue Truck #2…told from the truck’s perspective (see below for part 1)
As I aged, bailing wire and duct tape held my parts together. All through the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, my broken parts were replaced and repaired, but then age, rust, and deterioration cost more than I was worth, and I was abandoned to the farm’s “old truck” graveyard. I was the “old reliable” blue truck that became just another rusty piece of scrap metal. The rain, hot summers, and occasional rodents destroyed most of what remained of my intact parts. My odometer stood still, and few of my gauges worked. My gears and motor no longer ran. One tire leaned way too much for good camber and castor. My door knobs were missing, all my chrome was gone, and my heater fan rattled like a snake. My gas tank had 12 gallons of water mixed with gas and rust. A huge crack ran the entire length of my windshield, which was caked in grime and mud from decades of indifference. Dust and dirt gathered in my cab, and my dash board was split in two. My tailgate went AWOL years ago, and my front bumper was bent into the shape of a “V”. Years of Arkansas sunshine had faded my bright blue paint into a dingy gray. I had bushes and grass growing in the cracks of my bed. Then came that fateful day in August 2001 when another generation discovered me. I was in pretty sad shape when the dad and the son came to rescue me. They could see that I was not beyond saving and dreamed of what good transportation I could provide. After years of toiling, then years of languishing, suddenly I was the center of attention. They put me on a trailer and hauled me from the family farm to my new home in town. However, not everyone thought I was a diamond in the rough. The first time that the saw me, she thought they needed to have bumper stickers printed up to say “Must have a current tetanus shot to ride in this truck!” She even nicknamed me Frankenstein. (More to come of my story)
My new amorphous blob of a rollerskate!
Well, the dear old Camry, as much as I loved it, had pulled its last straw. Its annual vehicle inspection was due at the end of February, and it needed at least a new windshield (which isn't covered with my insurance) after developing a large crack. Also, an apparent fuel starvation issue had just started, and the rear suspension was beginning to make a racket again. And at 11 years old and 240,000 kms on the odometer, it was not getting any younger. It had cost me $7,000 in maintenance and repairs alone in the past two years, and like I say, it wasn't getting any younger. As I'm currently saving for a wedding and a long honeymoon, and intend to save for a classic car after that, I wanted something very cheap and dependable to get me around, to work and elsewhere. Nothing fancy required. I found this 2006 Pontiac Wave (which I believe is a Canadian-only variant of the Chevrolet Aveo / Daewoo Kalos) sedan, with 52,000 kms on the clock. Factory warranty remaining and a few years and many kms of extended warranty remaining after that. Absolute base model with no options other than a CD player (that's optional!). 5-speed manual, of course. $6,500. I've had it for two days now, and I must say, it's actually a pretty fine little rig. Nothing fancy or special about it, of course, but with a 1.6 it's plenty nippy and sprightly, and my ScanGauge, even before calibration, is telling me I'm getting about 48 mpg. I'm actually quite pleased with it. :)
