Long before I had this blog, I had a car loan. My old car, a hand-me-down 1990 Volvo Stationwagon with about 200,000 miles, decided to stop working while driving west on Belleview Avenue one summer morning. Fixing it would have cost as much as the car was worth, so I decided to get a brand new one.
