For years, I have driven around junky cars that really should have never been on the road.
These cars were hand-me-downs from old relatives and my father-in-law helped me get the running so I would have a vehicle to get to and from school.
They had their issues, however they were pretty reliable, and I never had trouble getting to work. The only part that I really couldn’t stand was that these cars didn’t have air conditioning systems. Sure, they had heaters and I was always ecstatic to be warm in the winter, but during the summer, the black leather interior would heat up like a heater. I would rather sit outside in the sun than climb in our car without an air conditioning system. The temperature would make all the seats hot to the touch, and I would always be covered in sweat after only a quick drive. The first time we went on a long, fourteen-hour road trip, I was so anxious that we had no air conditioning system! We tried to charge the air conditioning system, but no cold air came out. It wouldn’t have been too bad if we could have kept the windows rolled down, but it rained a lot. This year, I bought a new car and it had air conditioner. It feels so nice to drive around town with cold air blasting on my skin… Occasionally I turn the thermostat so cold that it makes me shiver because I am excited. We are about to head out on a road trip in a few days, and I am very excited. This will be the first road trip with an air conditioning system that we have taken!
