Hello Goodbye

Today I parted company with my first car Hilda, the first car I ever owned. She was old and tired like her namesake, my great grandmother. But similarly she survived (and continues to live, I guess) for over 159,000 miles.

Hilda in her splendor

Like grandma, who wore a wig in her later years, Hilda was losing it up top

And some of her internals weren't great either

159,753.3 miles of good times

But with the goodbye came a hello--to Hilda II, a beautiful '03 Accord EX V-6.

Welcoming Hilda II

Something a little younger and sexier

With inner beauty, too

The two of us are looking forward to many happy miles together.


  • NICE car! I like it.

  • I'm an Accord driver myself, since 1996. So welcome to the club, I know you'll be very happy with your new ride. The ladies will dig it too, if you are willing to consider some new rims.

  • Wow, what a jump up. Do you think that the mileage will be affected adversely by having paint and top coat on all of the outsides? I think that is a stunning accessory for a corporate lawyer. Congrats, son.

  • Good looking car. Both of them, I mean.
