It can be hard to say goodbye to an old car, even when it has stopped running. For many people, a car can be a really sentimental item with a lot of great memories.
But there comes a time in every car’s life when it needs to go to the big junkyard in the sky. Here are some signs that for your junk car, that day has come:
1. You Offer the Car to Your Newly-Licensed Child, and He Just Backs Away
Contrary to what most television sitcoms would have you believe, teens generally aren’t that picky about their first cars. While they may long for a Mustang or another “sporty” car, if you present them with free car then they’re usually happy to take it.
If your newly-licensed child says thanks but no thanks to the offer of your old junk car—and meekly begs to keep borrowing the family station wagon instead—then it’s time to say goodbye to the old junker. Even if it’s still “functional,” you’ll need to call someone to remove it.
2. Your Junk Car Is Doing Double-Duty as Lawn Art
You may love your old car and long for the day when you’ll have the cash to fix the junker up. Yet the truth is, if you’ve already got the car up on blocks in your yard, then it’s life is probably over. Don’t let your sentimentality bring down the neighborhood property values!
3. The Neighborhood Cats Have Claimed It as Their Own
We wish we were kidding about this, but it’s true: While most cats hate car rides, they love stationary vehicles. A broken down car, with windows stuck in a variety of inconvenient positions, is basically an open invitation to every cat in the neighborhood. They will likely take up residence in the backseat, and in the best case scenario, you’ll be breaking up cat fights taking place on your dashboard. In the worst case scenario… well you know how cats mark their territory! Just say goodbye to your junk car and let the cats find another place to hang out.
