So ok, I drive an old car. 95 Toyota Corolla. Sandpebble beige. Bought it new in May 1995. It's got 162,000 miles on it, give or take. First time I ever bought myself a brand new car.
I love this car. My daughters spent their childhood being transported in this car.
So Saturday morning I noticed that the driver's side front tire was low. Very low. Took the car to the discount tire store to check things out.
Well, it turns out I had 3 very old tires on the car -- replaced one tire about a year ago when I hit a nail, but I can't even remember the last time I bought tires.
And then the mechanic showed me the struts.
Can you believe they were original equipment?
17 years and 162,000 miles on the same struts?!!!
