Today marks the eight year anniversary of purchasing my S13. I’ll always remember that I bought it on November 4th, the day of the presidential election in 2008. I’ve sort of made it a tradition to take photos of the car on this date each year to show the build’s progress. They’re a bit less meaningful now as they show more of a current state than a progression, but it’s still kind of fun to do none the less.
Conditions weren’t ideal for photos today (a bit too sunny) and I rushed them a bit on my way back to the office from my lunch break, but here there are anyway for your viewing pleasure:
It’s kind of wild to think about how life has changed since I bought the car. Since that day I’ve graduated college, gotten married, bought a house in a new town, had a baby, parted out the car and sold the chassis, had another baby, bought the car back and rebuilt it, and changed jobs. Pretty thankful to have this car after all it has been through.
The days are getting shorter and the air is much more crisp in the mornings. I’ll probably try to sneak a few more quick drives in before the car is put away for good until spring. Going to miss it!
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by.
