I’m starting to feel better about selling the S10. After church we went to Zoe’s for lunch with our friends Eric and Kris. On the way there, I’m sitting at the traffic light on Sulpher Springs Road waiting to turn left on Highway 150 when there goes my old S10. It still had my BAMA tag on the front and my old license plate on the back. It was now sporting some new magnets on the sides and back advertising Bill Hill’s piano moving business. I’m so glad I didn’t just sell my truck to some dealer who was going to carry it to auction.
On Wednesday, I sold my 2000 Chevy S10. When I first started driving it, there were less than 1000 miles on it. There are now nearly 125,000 miles on it. This truck has been with me in good times and in bad. It moved me to Chicago for a summer, in and out of dorms for two years, into our first apartment and house. Janie and I made many road trips in it. It’s hauled my old stereo to weddings so I could be a DJ. I also used it to haul my Roland keyboard around to gigs and practices. It towed my brother’s old Silverado from Cullman all the way back to his house in Hartselle. I used it for everything and it never complained. I do feel bad that I sold it, but the guy who bought it is a piano mover and tuner and he’s an Alabama fan. I feel like it’s going to a good home and not some heartless auction.
So long good friend.
I got a new ride today. It’s a 2007 GMC Yukon SLT. Special thanks to Brit for helping me find it. S10s unfortunately cannot carry two car seats.
