Didn’t think it’d be anytime soon. I expected to drive Brown Cow for much longer. But after a few episodes of the car dying on me – usually right after a long trip from Johor to KL – my mom and I think it’s high time we let her go.
I’ve already changed the battery, ECU and even serviced the car just a few months ago. Alternator is OK though.
At first, I wasn’t in a hurry to sell off. I posted in FB Marketplace and would have been cool whether there’s a buyer or not, but given how frequent I had to jumpstart the car of late, meant that I’d better do it pronto.
In the end, I drove my car to Carsome at Johor Jaya and after a speedy inspection, put the Brown Cow up for online bidding. Within 24 hours, I’ve gotten a buyer. Even though it’s lower than expected (obviously), at least it pays off the Hire Purchase balance and I can use the excess for paid ads.
Given the circumstances, it’s better to let go a.s.a.p. so I might as well snatch the W for what it’s worth.
2017 – 2023. 6 years. The Brown Cow and I have been to many places together. But the time has come. I hope my successor will take great care of her as did I.
Pictures from my last ride.
In the mean time, I’m not in a hurry to buy a new car. Ever since I moved back to Johor, I hardly drive out and when I do, it’s in town.
Wiser to rebuild my financial forces in other areas like hard assets (gold, silver) and scale my webinars in the next 6 to 9 months. For now.
