Dear Friends & Readers,
Today i would like to bring you back to my old memories which is about my old faithful turtle story. This is not a real life species or animals but is my first car. *sob sob*
Why I called it an Old Turtle because the year make and the power engine output. It was manufactured year 95 and 1.6cc hatchback two doors car. My first Proton Satria 1.6. I got this car for my birthday present. It was the most expensive and the biggest I ever had in my life. I got it around June 02, if I have not mistaken it. It was the car I wanted to have even thou lasttime I wanted to get a Honda Civic EG6 or Proton Satria GTi but we can’t afford then so we just get a Satria 1.6 and this year 95 model look alike to Civic EG’s tail. Even thou it is a second hand car I’m very happy with it because I told my dad I don’t want a brand new because by the time car come out i’ll start adding this and that. By this it will void the warranty.
My dad drove back the car in the afternoon, and like what I had said earlier not even a month I got 4 of my sport rims which is 14″ inch to be painted and it is custom paint by myself with “GOLD” color.. *Blink blink*. After a few months I got my first bodykit and it just only the front bumper lips, then after a few weeks I’ve the side skirts as well. In here I would like to thank *sub* a friend in Muar Johore to provide me the front grill for free. Thanks man. After all the bodykits is install into my faithful is time for performance. A custom 1.6cc turbocharged ekzos pipe which 2″ inch from mid box till the tip. It add a rumble to my Turtle. It become a very fierce Turtle.
To have more power into my turtle one racing clutch from Exedy was fitted into it for better performance. Racing plug and cables. This gives my faithful TURTLE POWER! before my turtle is taken away from me I have fitted 4 brand new Dunlop tires. All this modification I have spend more than RM1k++, with a pocket money for RM50 for a week include petrol allowance you’ll think how the hell I can get all this upgrades. This is call well budget and everyday no breakfast, no lunch and no spending unnecssary but only to my car.
Good things always must come to the end, by the early of year 05, financial crisis hit onto my family and my car was repossed. When the bank took my turtle away from me it was like a whipping at my heart. I can feel a hard sharp knife stab onto me. I stay in my room and depress and I even can’t held my head high. It was I lost my legs, eyes or other part of body. My life was trembling down. At last, not long a couple of weeks later I stand up to myself and told myself this few words “God, is testing me, He want me to be brave and able to fall and pick myself up, Life there is always up and down, It just how we see it, Why you want to be sad and think all the bad things fall onto you and why not something happy that you have done with it. There is nothing impossible, it only takes time to do it only.” so I have choosen to be Happy always.
Last but not least, i would to tell everyone reading this is don’t give out hope on yourself, when you do give up, you’re giving up yourself already, if you can bring yourself to another step higher and think positvely things are not bad as you think. Remember always God is there for you everytime. He is testing you. Be Strong! Don’t fall into the Devils trap. Cheers!!!
