The Death of a Schroed-Man

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a good friend:
Schroeder, the Hyundai

We knew this day would come, but at the ripe old age of 12 years old, he still feels so young to us.
This little guy has been a part of our family from the very start.  You could say he is the reason we are a family in the first place because it was in this very car that Jason asked me out on our first date.  

From Utah to San Diego, Maine, Idaho, Houston, Ohio, and Boston, he has carried us to family, cruise ports, vacations, and homes.  With our memories of better times, we send him on to a better place.  Though he is junk-yard bound for a mere $325, in our hearts, he will always be our little money pit.

Rest in Peace, Schroeder.

$325?!? That's great. When I drove my car (Bluebell) to the junk yard I got only $150.

He came to Chicago too. (And possibly had his window shattered in the process...)

Looks like it will be a good car for you. Congratulations!
