Farewell to the “InterCorsica”

Dear InterCorsica,
What a good companion you have been. We have been through so much together, and for that I thank you. Even when I bad talked your looks, drove you to fast, and forgot to change your oil; you were unshakable. You survived the nights when 7 or 8 of us roommates would load into your seats for a quick trip to Jack-in-the-Box. You understood and didn’t complain when Breah and I listened to the exact same song every morning for an entire semester as we drove to school. You survived when I drove you all the way to Cody, Wy for the summer to work at the Dude Ranch. You also survived the trip back home two days later when I changed my mind. You survived being my Uhaul as I moved from one apartment to another, to another, to another and finally into Spencer and my first little house. You survived the many lonely nights of being parked outside the Engineering Library as Spencer crammed for an exam inside. You made it to school and work numerous times with your gas gage below the “E” as your poor college student owners waited for their next pay check. Even when you were stolen from our driveway, robbed of your radio, your mirror busted and your windows kicked; you still found the strength and courage to come home. You even started right up when we parked you outside in the cold, allowed you to get buried from the snow and completely ignored for 4 whole months. You were our Old Faithful, our True Blue.
Goodbye InterCorsica…you’ve served us well.
Your Family

*Note: InterCorica is the nickname given to our 1995 Chevy Corsica car. My dad picked it out for me my 1st year of college when my old car bit the dust. I threw the biggest fit when I first saw my “new” car because…well…I thought it was ugly (which it was) and a “grandma car” (which it also was). I drove the car until I married Spence. When we bought our first little car together Spencer let me drive it and he took over the drivers seat on the InterCorsica (what a good husband I have). We bought a little truck about 4 months ago (with a sweet paint job :) , but that’s for another blog, another time). Since the purchase of the truck the Corsica has been parked in the driveway. We sold the Corsica yesterday to one of the boys that works for my dad.

I love the name of your car! Funny.

I used to have a Nissan Sentra that I accidently called a Nissan Senatra when I was talking to a mechanic. Matt was with me and teased me forever about it, so needless to say the car's name was Senatra.

No! No! Not the InterCorsica! I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. May he rest in peace.

I can't take credit for the nickname, my mom nicknamed it the InterCorsica.
