Here's an Alaskan version

We spent a week tracking down a reasonable used car near Seattle
, shipped it north from Puget Sound, and drove it occasionally while we drove the old one.

Finally the axle broke (in a parking lot, so no traffic problems). DH called a tow truck for the broken car and me for a ride home.

We kept it in the driveway until the next car roundup, sold parts to some friends, then had it towed to the barge to be taken away!
