Alex was still a baby, Katie was in third grade, and we put this "family van" to work from day one. From hauling the family across the island to more than a few cargo runs, we paid her off fast and got more than our money's worth in no time.
Alas, now it's time to retire this workhorse. The speedometer broke a couple of years ago (which definitely encouraged a lighter foot), the ice-cold AC stopped working earlier this year, it would hiss and steam after chugging up the H-2, and it started to eat oil. It has been relegated to quick trips to the supermarket or to Jen's job, just a few blocks away, for a while.
Unless anyone knows a high school auto shop that would like a project car (I'll try to call Mililani this week), I'm donating her to NKF Hawaii, which has taken the last few last-leg running cars we've given up. But I'm going to miss this one.
