LENT DAY 3 Goodbye Pontiac Aztek, Hello Jeep Patriot

Cinema Dave traded in his 2002 Pontiac Aztek today. Purchased during the Terrorism scare of 2002, the Aztek was a great riding car that earned it's 93,000 miles. Besides repeated trips to Disneyworld, the alien Aztek made multiple trips to Alabama and South Carolina.

Time magazine proclaimed the Pontiac Aztek as the worst car of all time, but one really had to know it to love it. As my old pal Anita Nelson said, the Pontiac Aztek looked like a grown up Volkswagen Beetle, my first car. If I were a rich man, I would have retired my Pontiac Aztek to a barn. Twenty years from now, the Pontiac Aztek will be a collector's item.

The dealership that I purchased my car from, looks like a candidate for Chapter 11. So Cinema Dave purchased a Jeep Patriot this time.
