2017 01 17 - Hobby Forces Sale

Mooch the mini was my pride and joy. I'd had her for 10 years ....... and as the advert used to say we've been on many adventures. She made me smile every single time I drove her. She was fast and furious and drove like a go cart, sticking to the road like .....

I've cried so many tears in her too, when life got hard.........especially on those last few desperate days of going into the job that made me so poorly.

Anyway, in September I bought a Ford Kuga as I just couldn't get all my camera paraphernalia into Mooch and so she was tucked in the garage.

Yesterday I made the decision to sell her as it was too sad seeing her not being driven when someone else could have the fun I've had. I've even driven (and been driven) round MK taking light trail photos at night with the roof down (thanks Matt!)

So we went for a final spin together before we parted company, the man at the garage was kind when I cried handing the keys over......

bye bye Mooch
At first I thought I read, 'Hubby' forces sale! Then it seems your camera interest has taken over! How much stuff do you have?? Mine fits into a small shoulder bag!

:( Sorry for your loss. I still miss my red Miata that I sold 12 years ago when I got pregnant.

January 18th, 2017  
Ah never mind Sarah all for the best.

@maggiemae Maggie, no way would he have done that, trust me! The irony is, we both had soft tops so we build a garage to accommodate them, guess what...............both soft tops now gone and replaced with SUVs!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Jackie, new car is Henry (Henry Ford) was going to be Freddy (as in Kruger) but after Googling Freddy Kruger and seeing how ugly he was, car became Henry!

@padlock Oh yes, I agree..... just hurt coming to that conclusion after pondering since September!

So sad to say goodbye to a much loved car, I sobbed my heart out when I gave my old car to my son - he even still lived at home!!

@lhart It seems daft that we get all sentimental doesn't it, but I was really really sad, didn't sleep well last night hoping I had done the right thing

Really good looking Mini. They are so popular around the country. I have a friend whose sister goes on the mini road trips around the US every summer. Love the beautiful color.

Sad to say goodbye to it. My brother is just like you, he has had his beautiful black shiny Mini for about 13 years and knows he should get rid of it (road tax is getting expensive) but can't find anything else he wants to drive.

Sorry to see Mooch go, but big props for basing your decision on photographic needs!!
January 19th, 2017  
Ah, cute car - happy travelling in your new vehicle and think of the photography!
January 19th, 2017  
Aw. Sorry you've had to part with Mooch, but sounds like you've taken the right decision!

A sad day. Our first car when we first got married was a Mini Countryman and we had lots of happy memories in it. The saddest car I had to part with though was my Subaru L Series Station Wagon. We bought it when we lived in Cyprus and drove it back to the UK through lots of countries. Unfortunately, it had to stay behind when we came to Australia.

My sad day came when I had to get sell my lovely red MR2 that looked like a Ferrari! I had to sell him because of my back problems as he was so looooooooow

Nice looking car. I can't say I have ever become attached to my cars but I can understand those who do.
January 19th, 2017  
I understand your attachment. I hope Henry gives you as much pleasure as Mooch did xx
