First of all, I have a major announcement that has nothing to do with what will follow, but here it is. Henceforth, all my blog posts can be found at oneragamuffin.com instead of oneragamuffin.wordpress.com. It’s a bit simpler and easier to find (hopefully) and to share with all your family and friends and neighbors and acquaintances.
Now starts the real blog post. I have sighted two other red Jeep Cherokees in the last three days. For me, that’s like spotting not one but two unicorns. I used to see the old Jeep Cherokees all the time, but nowadays (spoken like an old timer), I rarely see them. Especially red ones.
A bit of background: they quit making the old-school Jeep Cherokees in 2001. That means they are at least 20 years old. They probably have a bazillion miles on them by now, or at least if they are like mine which has almost 385,000 miles on it.
All this may not mean much to you. If you’re not versed in the Jeep lore, it might not mean anything to you. But it means a lot to me. I almost feel validated as an old car driver. There are others out there who appreciate vintage vehicles that were built to last over the new fangled cars with all the technology. As all the old people say, they don’t make ’em like they used to. And it’s true. They don’t.
So now you know that 1) I’m old and 2) I essentially drive a pink unicorn and 3) I like the older cars. Oh, and don’t forget about oneragamuffin.com. You’re welcome.
