The TOMC (The Old Man Car) era has ended. Our relationship started January 2007. I bought TOMC after going car-less for a few months. I lost my executive level job and the company car that went with the position. The company car was a brand new Ford Taurus. We were browsing at the local Carmax when the salesman said to me,
“Hey, we just got one (Taurus) in. You want to take a look at it?”
When we got to the car on the lot I looked at the price and said,
“I’ll take it.”
“Don’t you want to test drive it?”
Today was an emotional day. It was hard saying goodbye to a faithful friend after 14 fabulous years. But by tomorrow I think I’ll be just fine.
