In Loving Memory

now that i officially own my car i would like to take this time to share my story about how and why i am able to own her.

on the night of october 9th 2009 i received a phone call from my brother that my father had suffered a massive brain hemmorage and was not going to make it through the night. my family lives a hard 10 hour drive away from me. we left and made the drive as fast as a 3/4 ton diesel could. when we arrived at the hospital at 5am was when i was informed that my father was brain dead. the neurologists explained that he was brain dead within an instant of the hemmorage bursting and that he was kept on life support for my arrival. all of this rocked me to the absolute core as my dad was my rock throughout my entire life. at 6am on october 10th we made the decision to remove him from life support and i held his hand until he took his final breath.

the funeral was 5 days later and we laid my dad to rest.

after some very long discussions we came to the agreement to use part of my inheritance as the down payment on my car.

this car is dedicated in loving memory of my father

i hope you like her dad

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

Condolences for your loss and congrats on your 'maro. My story is similar, when my mom died 1/9/09 she left me a new Scion with less than 1K miles. I used that for my downpayment on my 1SS RJT delivered 5/29/09.

I'm sure he'd say you got yourself a nice ride.

Maybe a "101009" plate should be in order?
