Will we ever meet again??

Dear Hope,
I have been thinking about you a lot lately, with the weather warming up. I find myself wondering if i will ever get to drive you again. It has been so long since i've seen you. I know my dad visited you a few weeks ago and he says you're running great. That is good to hear. Now drive yourself down here so you can meet the new addition to our family. He is very cute and really wants to meet you. I've told him about all the fun times we've had together.

Like that time you ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere because your gauge was broken, and the time you decided to lock yourself from the inside making me crawl in from the passenger side... Everyday! Oh, and the very first time i drove you to school and we picked up Tasha cause we thought we were so cool, then i stalled you the whole way there. I think my favorite one is when we were trying to leave Garrett's house in Utah and you wouldn't start, so Garrett pushed and I popped you out in second gear. Then while we were driving back i had to roll the window down in below freezing weather to wipe your windseild because you were fogging up so bad. And just when i thought things couldn't get worse we got pulled over for having a headlight out and the friendly cop followed us all the way home. What a night!

You look so cold!

It looks like you're out of gas... but you're not. Good thing i know how to use the sunlight to check the gas.

I haven't even seen you with your new paint job yet. Dad promised its green and white, not pink and blue like it looks. He blames the sunset.
