My car, Vicky, was sold last Friday! Zack has been bugging me to sell it for months now and out of boredom more than anything I put it up on ksl.com classifieds thinking it wouldn't sell for at least 30 days. I looked at other similar listings and I saw that they had been posted for about 23 days so I thought I had time. Luckily 5 minutes after I posted the ad I got a phone call on it. I met the person that night, they test drove it and liked it. The next day they called telling me they wanted to purchase the car! It truly was a blessing being able to sell it so quickly. It also was a blessing for the price we sold it for! We got at least $400 dollars more than I thought we would :) Definitely a bonus!
Vicky was first my Grandpa Galbraith's car. I have a memory of him and my Grandma coming over to our house to show it off right after they bough it in 1994! I would have been 11 years old! I thought it was so cool how the speedometer would digitally show you the speed and I loved that there was an extra seat up front! Little did I know that this little beauty would be mine a few years later! I was lucky enough to inherit it for free from my Grandpa. He decided he probably wasn't safe behind the wheel anymore and so he offered it to his grandchildren first. I am the youngest grandchild on that side of the family and most all of our other cousins were established and had cars of their own so I got it! Pretty sweet deal!
It is a Ford Crown Victoria, so because of that I nicknamed her Vicky for short! You certainly were a 'grandpa car' in every way, but you were great to me while you lasted! Be good to your new owner!
We met each other in high school and have been married since 2008. At the end of 2010 we welcomed our little girl, Elise and in 2013 we were joined by James. We are currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin while Zack attends The Medical College of Wisconsin. He is in his 4th and final year of medical school and works very hard for all of us! Emily is lucky enough to stay home and take care of Elise and James.
