Farewell, Jetta

Santa Rosa
Sept. 6, 2000

< < previous | next > >

After 223,000 miles, from Maine to Mexico, from Manhattan to Minneapolis to Monte Rio, the Jetta has come to the end of its road. Or, at least, our road together: from here on, its path lies with the Polly Klaas Foundation.

After pushing it out from the garage to the street where the tow truck will collect it tomorrow, we celebrated with one last sitting (and jumping) on the Jetta.

A few yards up the street, a shiny green, 2001 Jetta GLS sat patiently, waiting to enjoy the empty space in the garage.
