It’s funny how you spend so much time in your car, but you never really think to take a photo of it. I guess it would feel a little funny to ask someone… “hey, do you mind snapping a quick picture of me and my car?”
Over the years, I’ve vowed to document things in our real day-to-day life, which has included taking photos of Ting and his cars. One of the reasons for all this is this photo of me and my older brother, Chris. I love this photo – not because it’s a particularly cool photo, but because it’s fun to look back at mom and dad’s old life. Our old life. Someday, I think our kids will see these photos of Danny with his cars and laugh at our “vintage” rides. Maybe they’ll think we were complete nerds or that their dad was really cool. Either way, these are the things that we’ll remember more than that one fancy dinner out (when people tend to snap all the pics).
Well, here are the last photos of me and Silvia. They may be our first and last, actually. Yes, it’s been a long, fun ride, but on Saturday night Danny listed my car and on Sunday afternoon she was sold. It’s sad to see her go, but I felt much better after we met her new owners… a dad and his daughter who’s starting her sophomore year at UofA. I love it… Silvia is heading back to Tucson to do right by another Wildcat.
It’s been real, Silvia.
