Photography: RIP 1999 Nissan Altima

These are William’s photos. To see all of my photography posts, click here.

It’s been over 2 months since the last ride of my 1999 Nissan Altima. After some ongoing problems, it was an electrical issue that led to William and I giving up and buying a new 2014 Hyundai Tucson. More on that soon.

I am more emotionally attached to my cars than I would expect to be, given that I don’t think of myself as a “car person.” My last 2 cars have been ones I obtained from family members, and until this new Tucson, I had never had a new car before. The Altima was Nan’s car before it was mine. It smelled like Clinique stuff for a long time after I bought it from her.

Anyway, when we went back to the house where the Altima landed (and was picked up by GetJunked.com), William took these photos of the car, and I wanted to share them. I have similar photos of the 1994 Ford Escort station wagon that died in 2008, and I cannot recommend enough to anyone that they photograph their car! This is always the stuff you look back at later. I wish I had photos of my 1990 Ford Tempo’s interior.

Thanks again to William for the photos.
