It's been worth the wait..

When Matt and I moved back to NZ in 2007, our first car was this beauty:

Ah, the Goddess. Such an amazing car. It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to her three years later when the kid came along and it went from impractical to impossible.

We sold it to an older couple from North of Auckland - they were so excited, they picked it up and enthusiastically set off on a road trip back to their home.

The woman who bought the car phoned Matt a couple of weeks ago, and shared what had happened since - it turns out her husband was very ill at the time, and passed away sometime after. Two years later she was facing the task of dealing with his estate, and had phoned Matt to ask if we would take back the car, as she knew how important it was to us....

Hell yes!

So she's back - parked outside our house right now. We took it for it's first drive over Easter and it performed excellently. Not sure how we are going to deal with the fact we are now a three car family, but hey....
