Hyundai – Jeanne’s new ride

Hi readers.  Jeanne’s 1991 Oldsmobile’s headed for someone poorer and more desperate than she is.  Found herself a spanking new Hyundai with less than 100,000 miles on it and less than a decade old.  Ran it through all the mechanic pre-purchase checks and online automotive and title histories, and concluded it might be okay.

Maybe it will.  The Oldsmobile was doing some threatening and complaining it wasn’t getting enough treasure spent keeping it running.  So I hope the Hyundai measures up and lasts a while.

I’m thinking it’s named after a place I visited in Korea while I was on leave, travelling around site seeing.  Went somewhere, Taegue I think, saw a giant Buddha, rode a coal fired train around all over the countryside.  And came to Hyundai down the other side of the bay from Pusan.  Beautiful place.

Beautiful place all to hell, it was.  Trees blooming, a serene bay with all manner of Chinese junk looking boats and smaller boats with wiggletails used as oars.

People around Hyundai didn’t see much of GIs, same as up at Taegu.  I spent 30 days travelling around and a week-or-so at Hyundae.  A fond memory I hadn’t remembered until Jeanne decided on that car.

Hell of a deal.

  1. Good luck to Jeanne with the Hyundai!

  2. Thanks for letting us know, since Jeanne tends to post so little on her own blog about such things.

    • Hi Ed, thanks. I don’t have any enthusiasm for my own blog anymore, and it’s never been my style to talk much about stuff I buy. The process of finding it wasn’t a lot of fun. I’m sure I’ll be more enthusiastic after it’s tagged and I’m actually driving it, though.

  3. Good luck, good memories.. c

  4. Hindsight nakes for delicate memories.. your affirmation beginning is wonderful, like a desert prayer.. thank you.. c
