I bought Gemma a couple of months ago, and I can happily say I've moved on. That V6, that sound, the look, the styling, the fun! All this time I've felt a little like I've been cheating on Fiona, who sat in the garage not moving since Gemma arrived.
I found Fiona four years ago in Leamington Spa, and brought her all the way down to East Sussex. She was my first car, and she'd done 43000 miles. Now on 78000, she's been my pride and joy, and I've had some seriously good times driving her.
Sadly, today I had to let her go. I cleaned her from head to toe inside and out, took all my things and brought them inside... I then drove her 20 yards up the road to my next-door-neighbour's but one, who's bought her from me!
I don't know what to think. She's gone to a good home, but I'm going to see her everyday, reminded of the four great years we spent together. Don't get me wrong, everytime I get inside Gemma and turn the key, I'm reminded of how much I've moved up in the world, but I still get that pang in my heart, everytime I look at her, that Fiona isn't mine anymore
