        VEHICLE STORY

        This car was my second car after the civic and it was great! It was red, had the quad four engine, and the car never gave me problems. It ran great on road trips and had fun checking out the street races. I was working and going to college at the time so I took good care of the car. Well it was great until one hot July afternoon.  I was driving back from Manhattan on the Queensboro bridge with some friends when I noticed that the temperature on the gauge started climbing. I had all the windows open and turned on the heat to full blast to try to keep the temperature down. It worked for a little bit but unfortunately the inevitable happened. The engine overheated before I had a chance to pull over to let the engine cool off. I checked out the car later and found that the cooling fan failed. The engine had warped and there would be a lot of smoke coming out of the exhaust. I was bummed out and eventually got rid of the car.
