OP, i'm with you. in 1997, about 3 weeks before DD15 was born, we traded in my GORGEOUS, caribbean green mustang for a burgundy GMC jimmy (SUV). i cried, wailing "my baby" and waving at it as we drove off the lot. it was the first new car DH and i had bought together, back when we were broke, young newlyweds, and it tore me up to leave it behind, but i knew i wouldn't be able to climb in and out of the backseat to put our baby in a car seat. i had tried it several times the year before, when one of DH's friends and his wife had their first son-i drove them around a few times until she got cleared to drive again (she had a c-section) and getting the baby in and out of the car was really difficult. i drove that GMC for almost 14 years, and cried when it reached the point that we HAD to replace it. i'll probably cry when i replace my current SUV too, lol.

Oh my goodness, I am so glad to hear I'm not alone in my strange attachments Some of you even made me misty eyed! Ah well, I suppose being overly sentimental isn't the worst thing to be.

You are not alone! I am very attached to my '96 Camry. "She" has about 176,000 miles on her and is still going strong. I plan on driving "her" until something major goes. So many memories!

1969 enameled black, Cutlass convertible, red interior, 4 on the floor, dual barrel carb, race worthy engine. Beautiful and destroyed by some idiot child who stole their parents car and ran into mine. I cried at the lot when I went to get my stuff out of it.
