Gertrude

For those who might know already. I am planning on selling Gertrude. She has been a very good companion ever since i got back to Mauritius. I thought about selling her a couple of years ago but i could not let go of her as i was so attached and share incredible memories.

So i am now faced with a dilemma. Which car to get. Obviously for now, as i am planning to renovate my other house, i do not think a brand new car would do justice. Its a commitment that i would prefer to take at a later stage. I love cars but i would prefer to make my new house a cosier place with a great kitchen and living room.

So my options are seconds hand cars.

We all had that dream of buying a club with a friend one day or riding a convertible with a gorgeous lady next to me, cheveux aux vents wearing little clothes and who has amazing long legs and big ‘hearts’. Dream changes. Now i would love to have a nice looking, reasonably fast car but big enough for a day-to-day ride.

Theres the BMW shark which isn’t a bad idea. It is almost perfect. However, it is a high maintenance car, comfy to drive, and good-looking. And you can get one for around Rs 450,000 or less.

On the other hand, you have the 4×4 which i always loved. A truck that you just don’t car and drive anywhere u want. It high which suits me well. Makes you feel that the road belongs to you. However, second-hand trucks are mostly manual gear. And chicks hate manual gear to drive.

I have no idea what to get apart from these two. Or should i just opt for a reliable car which a good market value and drive around with my ‘not so satisfied’ face.

I have been checking out a couple of cars but i could not make mind. It felt like cheating on Gertrude. I guess i have to be courageous and sell Gertrude away once i have done with my good byes.

By the way Gertrude is my car
