100,000 miles: Taking Inventory

Our car, a 1989 Nissan Sentra, is 5 miles away from hitting 100,00 miles. I bought it used, in Portland, Oregon in 1999. It had about 70,000 miles on it then.

I have never owned a car this long. Her name is Jet Girl, named after Tank Girl’s side kick. She’s been a good car, despite a rash of bad luck in the last six months:

1 – Number of break-ins
2 – Number of flat tires (damn Massachusetts roads- worst in the country!)
2 – Number of new batteries (damn Massachusetts weather!)
2 – Number of towings
3 – Number of fenderbenders in which she was rear-ended (damn Mass-holes!)
3 – Number of City of Cambridge parking stickers
15 – Number of diners visited in the course of compiling the “Roadside Diner” ‘zine
4 – Number of road trips to Vermont
2 – Number of road trip to Philadelphia (I’m overdue for another one…)
2 – Number of road trips to Maine
6 – Number of road trips to western Massachusetts
1 – Number of road trips to Mystic, CT
1 – Number of road trips to Newport, RI (where got her tattoo)
1 – Number of road trips to Montreal, Quebec
2 – Number of times having sex while driving in this car

Sadly, I can’t think of anything more exciting to do the celebrate this milestone other than go to Denny’s tonight.

  1. We drove to Philly twice. First for just a visit, and the second for Pearl’s graduation. And you only counted when we were towed for street cleaning. We also towed her from Oregon and you had her towed at least once to the garage when the battery was too dead to take a jump. And are you sure about # of times we’ve had sex in her? Are you sure it hasn’t been more in 4.5 years? And I think there were more trips to VT, too. She’s aslo been to Sacket Harbor, and what about west coast road trips?

    OK, enough of my picking you apart. Sorry.

    –so noted!

    And are you sure about # of times we’ve had sex in her? Are you sure it hasn’t been more in 4.5 years?
    –I think, um, that the other times we’ve had sex driving, were um, in other cars.

    —Didn’t take any other west coast trips in jet Girl, remember, I only bought her a 6 months before moving out here.

  3. Okay, so I just can’t resist.

    Sex WHILE driving!?!

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

  4. We’ve never had an accident yet…

    You should try it some time.
