Vehicle Name Smokey (RIP :()
Year 1999

Model Golf TDI

History My first car. I've owned this car for 4 years and have a love/hate relationship with it. It started life with the legendary 01M automatic transmission that is prone to failure, so I converted it to a 5 speed manual. I named it Smokey because it likes to blow black soot upon hard acceleration. It comes in handy when someone is riding my ass!

On January 31, 2013 at 12:34 PM Smokey was T-boned by a 78 year old woman. I've had a love/hate relationship with this car, but I loved it more than I hated it I hope to get it back from the insurance company so I can part it out, or at least get it crushed right away. I can't stand the idea of it sitting in a junkyard to rot while people pick it apart
