Happy 200k Wrangler!

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Yesterday my beloved Jeep Grand Cherokee, who I named "Wrangler", hit a milestone. Not just any milestone, but the biggest car milestone of them all: 200k miles. Wrangler is only 13 years old but now that he hit the big 200k he is officially an "old car". But since I don't plan on selling Wrangler anytime soon, the 200k was just a better reason to celebrate.

The big 200k was passed while on a trip to Target. Personally I think this is the best possible trip we could have been taking for such an event. I mean, it's like wonderland. And just as expected, Wrangler got us there and back without a fuss.

Today to celebrate we went to the local gas station and filled up the gas tank to PASSED full. I'm typically a $20 here and $10 there type of gas filler; a full $60 tank of gas is quite a rare occasion. Somehow I think Wrangler even drives better on full. It's probably just something mental but nonetheless I'm sure if Wrangler could talk he would appreciate it.

Next we got a fancy car wash. Not those $5 washes where the robot moves spaghetti towels back and forth, I'm talking tire shine and rainbow wax. Wrangler has gotta look good on such a big occasion. 

Since I live in my car somedays with school and work and Jagger, I'll be honest, it sometimes gets trashed. Luckily I have been pretty good about cleaning out fast food bags and Jagger's cups but sometimes Wrangler still has a French fry or apple juice smell. Luckily, I have found that Febreze Car Vent Clips are fantastic at making Wrangler smell awesome all the time. I personally like the green gain scent the most. Currently I have three of them clipped in my car and tend to change them out about every 6 weeks. Therefore I went to the store and purchased an extra set to have for back up in honor of Wrangler's big day.

Afterwards I realized it was really hot out, I wanted Chick Fil A, and I didn't want to vacuum out my car, so Wrangler's celebration shall continue on tomorrow for even more car surprizes. 

Do you name your cars? 
So far I have named every car, laptop, cell phone, and iPod I have ever owned. It's weird but it works for me.
