My 2006 Chevy Cobalt has been with me through the toughest of times.
5 years……75k miles…..three relationships, three jobs, 2 tows (both my fault). Spring break down to Daytona Beach with two of my best men and back. It has comforted me in the cold of night when I was too …inebriated to drive or find somewhere to sleep. Multiple trips to the beach! NO SPEEDING TICKETS! A ticket for ‘failure to use four ways‘ (yeah I didn’t know what it was either!). It has played some of my favorite tunes from my homemade mixtapes. It protected me and my buddies when we hit smashed into that fire hydrant that one time and it ripped it to shreds. It survived multiple curb thumpings and late oil changes. My Chevy Cobalt is my pride and joy. Well…it’s really L’s Cobalt now because I don’t get to drive it anymore, but…it’s the principal that matters!
In 5 years, I have never missed a payment no matter how broke I was, and no matter how many packs of Ramen I had to eat to afford it. Now, I can live lavishly as 300$ magically gets put back into my pocket every month!
Folks….behold the most exciting day of my adult life! Zero balance on my car payment!
