03 Dec 06 Who needs a car?

So we’ve decided to sell our beloved VW Jetta station wagon (PDF 92 KB). I used the car to lug gear back and forth to gigs when I performed with blueScreen. We brought both Marley and Nicole home from the hospital in that car. And it got us safely to our new home in Brooklyn at the end of the summer.

We got sucked into the parking game here, flipping the car from one side of the street to the other for weekly street cleaning. We only got one parking ticket which is pretty good for New York City. We’ve decided to quit while we’re ahead and throw in the towel.

The car is now back in Toronto sitting in a heated garage and being well maintained by Karyn’s father. He has kindly offered to help us sell the car. If anyone is interested in a great family car that drives like a sports car, feel free to view our poster (PDF 92 KB) and share it with anyone that you think might be interested.

A review of this car on reads, “BMW performance and style for a VW pricetag.” A Canadian Driver overview of the car at says, “A handsome, practical wagon that’s well-finished and easy to drive.”

Not our car, but almost identical - 2003 VW Jetta Wagon

Update: We sold our car in mid-January. A huge thanks to Karyn’s Dad for finding the buyer and closing the sale!
