For years, I have driven around old cars that really should have never been on the road.
These cars were hand-me-downs from odd relatives, and my brother-in-law helped me get the running so I would have a car to get to and from work.
They had their issues, but they were pretty reliable, and I never had trouble getting to work. The only part that I absolutely couldn’t stand was that these cars didn’t have a/cs… Sure, they had heaters and I was always happy to be heat in the winter. During the summer, the black leather interior would heat up like a furnace. I would rather stand outside in the sun than climb in my car without an a/c. The temperature would make all the seats warm to the touch, and I would always be covered in sweat after only a quick drive. The first we went on a long, twelve-hour road trip, I was so sad that we had no a/c. We tried to charge the a/c, but no cold air would come 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, and occasionally I turn the temperature control so cold that it makes me shiver because I am so excited. We are about to head out on a road trip in several days, and I am easily excited. This will be the first road trip with an a/c that we have taken!
