In Memory of "Beryl"

I like to go fast!  I like it when life goes fast!  It just seems to be more interesting, and right now...IT'S GOING REALLY FAST!  Moving and starting a new job and everything that comes with that is making life crazy to say the least, and because of that, blogging gets a backseat ride.  But something happened yesterday that was a milestone in my life.  I sold Beryl.  You're probably wondering who Beryl is, and to that I say, "It's not a WHO, but it's a What!"  So, without further ado, I introduce you to Beryl...

This is Beryl.  She's a 1963 VW Beetle that I've had the pleasure of "restoring" over the past four years.  Isn't she a babe?  I got here all spiffied up the other day and created a classifieds listing.  Within 45 minutes, I had four people interested!  One guy even called me at 1am to see if he could buy her.  I quickly realized that I had priced her too low, so I raised the price by $1000.  That didn't deter anyone, and the phone calls kept flooding in!  Finally, yesterday, a mother and son from Chattanooga, TN drove down to check her out.  After a quick test drive, we signed the title and they drove off with my little bug.  Here's a few pictures of how she looked before she was sold.

But, as a memorial to our journey, here is a slideshow to show you where she came from...

And finally, here she is driving by...  I almost cried a little as I watched a similar view, but with someone else in my car.  Well, I know where she will be, and I hope to see her again.
