I sold my old Jeep yesterday. I really hated to see it go. I love that Jeep and I'm gonna miss it.
It was the perfect vehicle ... snow was never a problem. I used to park in snow banks just to have fun getting out of them. You could take the back seat out and haul stuff if you needed to. I hauled a LOT of backpacks over the past 7 years in the back of that old Jeep. You could take the top off and have fun in the sun if the mood struck. It would go anywhere but it wouldn't go anywhere fast. There wasn't too many parking places I couldn't get in. It would turn on a dime too. I've never seen maneuverability like that old Jeep had. And then there's the indisputable "cool" factor of driving a Jeep.
I've got a new Jeep now. I like it OK but I don't love it like I did my old Jeep. It's got power windows and power locks and a remote starter - all handy things to have but they are just so not Jeep. And its bigger. Apparently they're building Wranglers bigger than they used to. I feel more like I'm driving a Hummer now than a Jeep and I don't like that so much. I'm sure in time I'll get used to it and I'll come to love my new Jeep, but for now I'm thinking, "I'm sure gonna miss that old Jeep.
