Billy’s College Car Died Yesterday

I bought my 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer in August of 2004, I had graduated from high school and I needed a reliable car as I was staring to commute sixty miles a day for college. This car was great for that purpose.
It wasn't the most flashy car an eighteen year old could drive, but I wasn't looking for that. It lasted a long time, with only having to do regular maintenance like oil changes and new tires.
It was the car that helped me grow as a person. I paid my car off and that really helped my credit, then I put a loan against my car to help pay for my wedding. In fact it was the car that I was smooching with my wife in, while attending college. So many memories, mostly good and a few that I should have avoided.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and last night my "Club Lancer" was towed away and will soon be crushed into a little cube. I will always have great memories of that car and the times I had in it.
What was your most memorable car?
