Today we donated my father-in-laws 1988 Cadillac to cars for causes. He passed away two years ago and we had a hard time parting with the car. He was on a restricted license due to his age - but he still drove himself to English class and to the community center every week. He loved that car.
The car was fun to drive around. Driving her was like sailing on cement. No doubt she was old....and she had a few problems. Like a failing AC and a crap radio. We never let her bleed our wallets but we did extend her life with a few trips to our favorite mechanic.
We knew this day was coming......
The old Caddie didn't pass smog and the tags expired yesterday. We made the swift decision to donate it and now 10 hours later...she is gone.
We clipped the hood ornament and took her for one last spin.
It was hard going through the trunk....we still had all of pop's fishing gear in the back. I found a rhinestone elephant in the glove box, a rosary, an evil eye and a book of matches from a casino.
He loved that car.
