The BEAST: In Memoriam

The BEAST served its purpose and is now destined for the nearest chop shop where it will either be melted for low grade metal or violently dissembled. I had the beast for nearly four years and am happy to see it go. We did have our fun times together like when it overheated in the rain, the times it wouldn't start in the cold, the time it destroyed a new Honda Civic's rear in Huntley, the joy rides, the rides to the mechanic (these exceeded the joy rides), shuttling dates back to their dorms, impressing said dates with the "classic" nature of the beast. Oh memories.

I present a look back at what can only be described as The Beast

Love this. Nice slideshow. What program did you use?

Hey Heather,

I used Picasa. I upload my photos there and then they have an option to embed slideshows. Works quite nicely.

I never knew the Beast well, but I know that his years of service will not soon be forgotton. Godspeed, Beast.

There were prayers said every time I got in the Beast.

I did have the pleasure of seeing someone back into my new car today. It was a love tap but my maternal instincts told me to run out and pummel the person.
