This beasty little machine made it up the unpaved roads to Block 8 and through the Andes mountain mists of Cuenca.
My car never held more than 15 people at a time,
it never left us stranded in the middle of nowhere,
and was the bearer of many good gifts.
It passed the ultimate test out in Las Jaguitas during a mission trip in Feb 2014:
This car has been a great blessing in my life and I was worried about the selling process. When I uploaded it to the Ecuadorian version of Craig's List, I had more buyers than I could handle. I was worried about the safety of meeting with random people off the internet and I wasn't psycologically ready to spend a month of buses and taxis. The first 3 people I met on a Saturday morning with all wanted to buy the car. One couple said they would deposit the money first thing on Monday morning. I was so sad to sell it but begrudgingly thankful for the quick and simple process. That "first thing Monday morning" turned into "tomorrow", "tomorrow"... "Monday". "Great! More time with my car", I thought, although I was getting nervous.
