At the ripe middle age of 38 years, 10 months and 4 days, I have become the owner of my very first automotive vehicle.

It’s a 1995 Isuzu Trooper S, 5 speed manual, 4WD with 132,000 miles. It’s in decent, but not great shape. Missing a little fender flare, cracked windshield, needs new wiper blades, the driver’s side windows are off their tracks, and the rear tires are bald. The dealership is supposed to be taking care of all the problems, so it will be a couple of days until it is well and truly mine … but once it is done, it’s mine all mine!

Of course, the best thing is that it’s paid for.
