So, today I sold my car. It had been sitting parked out the back of the house for months without being used, and the rego had lapsed, so I got rid of it. I’d had that car (a 1989 Mitsubishi Galant Super Saloon) for about 5 years, and loved it dearly.

Over 316,000km, and it still started up right away and happily purred to itself.

Well, now a guy named Floyd from Pakuranga owns it, I hope he gets as many miles out of it as I did.

I took it on road trips as far afield as The Gathering in Nelson, and even went all the way to Christchurch, as well as several trips around North Island, to the family farms, Taupo, etc, up north as far as Kerikeri — including the ill fated trip to Waimate North which permanently modified it’s mintness, yay for going too fast on gravel roads, eh?

Goodbye Mitsi, I loved you well.
