I Was Ment To Own It...

When i was 18 years old, I bought my first car. It was a 1996 ford probe(used). I fell in love with this car right away. it was a fun car and decent on gas mileage. when i bought it, the car had 76,000 miles on it. I have a 50 mile commute to work, so after one day of driving its 100 miles. so needless to say my ford probe was pushing 100,000 within one year. So like an idiot, i traded the car in. Since then ive owned 5 different cars. i am now 26 years old and being blessed with a newborn baby girl this summer. When i found that out, I told my girlfriend that she would get the nice car and i would find a used one online. Just as i was ready to give up my search online, I happend to type in “ford probe” on craigs list. and I came acrossed my old car from 8 years ago. it wasnt running and has been sitting for 7 years in a farm field. i bought the car back for 600 dollars and every part i needed was still under a lifetime warranty at autozone. when i bought the car it only had 104,000 miles on it. and whoever bought it from the auto auction never registerd it, so it still showed me as the last owner. who can still say they have their first car?
