Pittsburg, Ca. Announcing the winner of the CarCovers.com 2017-2018 “How to Make Your Car Last Forever” Essay Scholarship Contest Winner. Ms. TB Justice from TN.
She so vividly captured the true essence of what truly makes a car last forever. Her essay started with quick-witted insights about our modern car culture. “Cars are an integral part of our lives.” and they are. With many people, a car isn't just a means of transportation. It's a right of passage from youth to young adult; it's a part of our individuality as a driver and a common member of their family.
So often as Americans go about their day, they neglect to see the participation their car has in their daily lives. Ms. Justice captures the essence of how to make a car last forever to make a car last forever in one statement. She must have been reading our minds. She said that the key to making a car last forever “is in our memory.”
It's the memories that the car makes possible for us as we sojourn through life's twists and turns. Sure you remember Dad's old truck, but what you really remember is when dad took you out into the pasture and let you take control of the wheel for the first time, or the first kiss in your parent's car on that first date.
Ms. Justice captured the true essence and meaning of immortality, the excitement of that nostalgic moment, or the anticipation of a new car when you are getting ready to bring home your newest member of your family from the hospital nursery.
The car was always there in the moment, ready to serve unselfishly. The car was there to take whatever precious cargo to wherever it needed to go. Ms. Justice's story is as timeless as the cars she helped us all to remember, it's in these moments where life's rubber meets the road; that we (you or I) make the memories that help to make our cars last forever.
