There was nothing special about it, but it was special to me.

I traded it in 2 moths ago after more than 7 years together. I even washed it one last time and took it for one last night out after I had already traded it in. I have no reason to miss it as it was a rental spec 2007 Jeep Patriot, but I loved that car more than anything and still do. My new Mazda 6 is amazing and trumps the Patriot in every way, yet I still long to go for a drive in the Patriot. I tried googling the vin and came up with nothing. If it were to show up online for sale, there’s a decent chance I would buy it back. How have y’all gotten over parting with your first ride? Here is a small photo dump of it.
