Goodbye old friend


A couple of months ago Trent's boss' suburban got in an accident. The insurance was just going to pay him out since the damage was pretty extensive. We were in the market for a bigger car since 3 car seats on one bench is a bit crowded. Trent ended up paying the insurance company to keep the car and fixing up the suburban. It is now all finished and in great condition, after a total investment of about 5 grand including the purchase price. Not bad.

Anyway, on with the story. Tuesday Trent got the suburban all registered and ready to drive. Our Yukon Denali was currently for sale and driving on temporary registration while Trent was trying to clear up some issues with it. Well, the DMV decided to have it reinspected to resolve the issues, so Trent went in with it first thing Wednesday morning. A couple hours later, Trent called and asked if I could come pick him up from the DMV seeing as our car was being seized. That's right seized. Apparently, I've been driving around a stolen car for the last 2 years. What! Crazy, I know. We were pretty shocked. Apparently our car was stolen from Nevada in 2003. Well, luckily we had full coverage on it and should get at leat some percentage of it's value back, if not all. What a strange day it was.

Abbie- I don't think it was Trent... if you catch my drift. (You know Robin is wild!!)

That's crazy, but I'm glad you got the suburban. That's awesome!

Who knew? All this time you were just the cute couple up the road with the most darling kids. Then come to find out your Tahoe was the hottest car in the hood.

Well ya don't get that everyday in our neighborhood.

Congrats on a new car that will have everyone a little more comfortable- ;)

Sorry we laughed... it was just a crazy story. 2 years! What about when you got it insured? Isn't that another way "the system" flags stolen vehicles? I wonder what they have to say about it here two years later... someone probably missed a step of getting it covered.
